There’s one play in the Bears’ defensive playbook that needs to be shredded.
The Bears put together an awful play call in the second quarter against the Packers, bringing a safety blitz that Aaron Rodgers saw coming a mile away, and leaving inside linebacker Danny Trevathan covering wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling downfield.
Unsurprisingly, Rodgers found Valdes-Scantling for a 72-yard touchdown.
What Bears defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano was thinking on that call is unclear, but it’s the single biggest play so far in a big game for the Bears. The Packers now lead 14-10.
