Packers link arms during National Anthem, fans react

Aaron Rodgers takes shot at critics of national anthem protests on Instagram

As NFL hits week 4 of play, Chicago Bears takes on Green Bay Packers this Thursday at 8:25 PM EST in Lambeau Field.

It was a costly victory for the beat-up Packers, though.

After a slow start, Jordan Howard looks to be getting back into the form that let him finish second for the rushing title last season (even though his hands out of the backfield could be more reliable). Furthermore, starting tackles David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Bryan Bulaga (ankle) both are put under doubtful. Hopefully, Green Bay can get healthy at tackle so Taylor can move back to guard next week in Dallas. Then, Glennon fumbled on the Bears' first offensive play on a sack by Clay Matthews. The ball was recovered at the Chicago 3-yard line, and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hit Randall Cobb on a TD pass.

The Packers organization has offered fans the chance to buy stock five times since 1923, when the team became a publicly owned nonprofit corporation. It seems like no matter who's rotating in and out of the Packers' offense, Rodgers will find a way to have success, especially against the Bears.

Quarterback Mike Glennon lost the handle on the football on his first play from scrimmage for the Chicago Bears.

If the Bears can keep Aaron Rodgers off the field and limit his possessions, there is a good possibility that an upset can brew like in 2015. The defenders collided, which allowed Nelson to get to the 2 for a gain of 58. Montgomery's backup Jamaal Williams subsequently hurt his knee, leaving rookie runner Aaron Jones and fullback Aaron Ripkowski to take over. And in the nine-plus seasons since, Chicago is 4-15 against its NFC North rival and has had three winning seasons and a lone playoff appearance.

Yet that momentum fizzled out in the second half when a promising drive went for not as Connor Barth missed a 47-yard field goal on the opening drive of the half.

Glennon connected on 21 of 33 passes for 216 yards but had three turnovers. No problem. Ty Montgomery, Davante Adams and a few others suffered injuries during the game, but the Packers kept moving forward.

The team said Adams was conscious while being brought to the hospital and had movement in his extremities. Trevathan was not ejected, but could be at risk of missing time.

Rodgers was 18-of-26 for 179 yards and four touchdowns without an interception.

Rodgers didn't waste time after the quick change.

But while no one player can lose an National Football League game by himself, Glennon is absolutely the main reason the Bears lost to Tampa and Green Bay, and he contributed nearly nothing to the upset of the Steelers.
