NFL teams going DeShaun watching

The amount of QBs that the NFL's worst teams have either gone through (Browns, Bears) or don't like (49ers) strengthens the likelihood of a QB like Clemson's DeShaun Watson going No. 1 in next year's draft. What We Learned: Week 7

Kiper: Whitehair a long-term solution

The Bears have had a forgettable start to the season. But if there's a silver lining, it's that they may have found a solid interior offensive line presence for years to come in their second round pick. Kiper's rookie big board (Insider)

Brian Hoyer's broken left arm means the Bears have to go back to Jay Cutler after Chicago's 26-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers offensive game plan tonight produced some good numbers for Aaron Rodgers fantasy owners. With the Packers leaning on the short-to-intermediate route tree due to injuries at the RB position and to create rhythm in the passing game, Rodgers completed 39-of-56-passes for 326 yards and three touchdowns.

If Jay Cutler doesn't return to start at QB in the Bears Week 8 game, it could be Matt Barkley taking the ball versus the Vikings top-tier defense. That's a really rough matchup for a team that is now 1-6 on the season.

Packers beat Bears 26-10 to kick off NFL Week 7. The ViewFromVegas is they also covered as 7.5-point home favorites and the game stayed under the betting total of 46.5.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears about to fall to 1-6 and 7-16 under John Fox as Green Bay leads 26-10 late in the 4th quarter. The Bears simply had no chance to score on offense after Matt Barkley took over at quarterback for Brian Hoyer, who broke his left arm. Hoyer and Barkley have combined to go 8-of-22 for 83 yards and one interception. On defense, the Bears did receive a touchdown from rookie Leonard Floyd on a sack/fumble in the 3rd quarters. But even with Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay struggling, there is no way the Bears can expect to win at Lambeau Field if they don't put the ball in the end zone. The Bears now limp home for a Monday night game vs. Minnesota on Oct. 31.
