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.

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.

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.

Here's a crazy bit of history for you: That Ty Montgomery catch gives the Packers three players with 10 receptions in this game. Randall Cobb and Davante Adams are the others. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that has only happened one other time in NFL history. It came in a 1994 game between the Patriots and Vikings that went to overtime.

The Packers jump to a 26-10 lead over the Bears in the fourth quarter on Aaron Rodgers' TD pass to Randall Cobb. It was another pick route, a Smash-7 (Corner) combination. The Packers are working to create open targets in the red zone tonight for Rodgers.

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

The Packers have managed to run a ball-control offense tonight with their passing game. Aaron Rodgers has dropped back on 55 of their 75 plays, netting a relatively small total 271 net yards. But here's the rub: Short passes have allowed the Packers to accumulate 31 first downs and to hold the ball for 36:03 so far. They have not given the Bears a chance to compete in the second half.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers jump to a 20-10 fourth quarter lead on the Bears after Davante Adams' second TD catch of the night. It was a slant-flat combination, which also acts as a pick route in the red zone. However, the Bears didn't communicate in the secondary before the snap. Instead of playing a "banjo" technique to pass off the routes, the safety jumped the flat -- leaving Adams wide open for six.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Bears touchdown was their first defensive touchdown against the Packers since 2007, when Brian Urlacher returned a Brett Favre interception for a touchdown.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears rookie OLB Leonard Floyd is starting to showcase his pass rush ability. Off a twist stunt, Floyd came free on the edge and continued to go after QB Aaron Rodgers. Speed and effort. Floyd got the ball out and recovered the fumble for a TD. That was Floyd's second sack of the night. Bears jump to a 10-6 lead in the third quarter.
