Bears win??

The Bears went into Lambeau field last night as HUGE underdog. They came out with a unlikely victory. Three things changed for the Bears from last week, they forced turnovers, protected the ball and had improved quarterback play. Charles Tillman returned to the lineup in a big way. Tillman forced two fumbles killing two potential scoring drives for the Packers. Brian Urlacher also came up with the big interception to put the Bears back into the game.

Brian Griese took advantage of the five Packer turnovers, by protecting the football and putting the ball in the end zone. Griese hit both his tight ends for scores in this game. Griese was not flashy, but he made big plays when he needed too. That is what Lovie Smith and the Bears expected when they inserted Brian Griese into the starting lineup. Griese did throw one interception that the did not come back to haunt the Bears.

This win was huge for the Bears, because now they get out of the NFC North cellar. This win also helps the Bears build confidence in their quarterback and in themselves.
