Tarik Cohen continues to struggle
The Bears debut of Mitchell Trubisky could have been better. Penalties, key drops, poor play-calling and turnovers cost Chicago this game. Tarik Cohen did not help his quarterback much either. He caught one pass for negative yards and gained 13 yards on six carries.

Jordan Howard has a subpar game against Vikings
The Bears looked to be in control of the game early, but could not put points on the board. Jordan Howard had a 42-yard touchdown run called back for a holding call. If that play stands, the outcome of this game could have been different. Unfortunately, the play was called back and Chicago lost 20-17. Howard did see 19 touches and gained 76 yards.

Chicago Bears defense gives up four touchdowns
The Bears allowed four touchdowns to Aaron Rodgers, but they also limited him to only 179 passing yards. The scoring onslaught was more due to timely turnovers by the Bears' offense. The Bears were not able to generate any turnovers and have yet to grab an interception this season. On a positive note they were able to record two sacks.

Benny Cunningham carries the ball five times on Thursday photo
Benny Cunningham carries the ball five times on Thursday
The Bears lost in a lopsided 35-14 matchup. However, if you look beyond the score, it was really the Mike Glennon turnovers that made this outcome look uneven. Chicago actually out-gained the Packers by 50 yards on offense and had three more first downs. Benny Cunningham saw the field in this one. He carried the ball five times for 26 yards. He was not involved in the passing game. Will Mike Trubisky be the answer going forward? How many more games before he sees the field? These are all questions that John Fox and Ryan Pace must consider going forward.
