Research Notes

  • With his punt return for a touchdown on Monday, Devin Hester is now one shy of Brian Mitchell's NFL record for most punt and kickoff returns for a TD. However, its Hester's first return for a touchdown since Week 17 of the 2007 season. In the 31 games since, his 7.5 yards per punt return are barely half that of what it was his first 2 seasons.

  • It's been a decade since the Packers recorded their last kickoff return for a touchdown, so it's no surprise that they didn¿t score on the desperation attempt at the end of Monday's game.

  • The Bears defense put Aaron Rodgers on the run on Monday, and when he was flushed out of the pocket, the results were not good for the Packers offense.

  • Dom Capers and the Green Bay Packers have utilized the base defense sparingly if at all in 2010. Green Bay used five or more defensive backs on the field for 43 of 48 Chicago¿s offensive plays. Entering Monday, the Packers used a five DB package on 99 of 114 plays (86.8 percent). Despite struggling against the Green Bay small package in 2009, Cutler had enough success to help his team to victory Monday.

  • The Packers discipline issues reappeared on Monday with a franchise-record 18 penalties for 152 yards. After a league-high 118 penalties (that were accepted) in 2009, Green Bay had just eight in its first two games this season. Tackles Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher really struggled with the Bears defensive front as they combined for six penalties. A holding penalty by Tauscher nullified a Packers touchdown and a roughing the passer penalty nullified an interception.
