In football the defenses always hit the ground running and the offenses take a while to get up to speed. That was the case in the 2019 season opener between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. It was a low scoring game that came down to the wire. Eventually Green Bay won 10-3 and their two free agent acquisitions (Preston Smith and Za’Darius Smith) seemed to be the difference makers.
P. Smith finished the night with 5 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 1 TFL in a hell of a debut. Z. Smith added 3 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 TFL which were plays the Packers’ defense lacked a year ago. Eventually Adrian Amos sealed the deal late in the game with an interception. Mitchell Trubisky was kept in check for most of the night as well and it was absolutely brutal to watch. Even though the Bears defense played lights out. Aaron Rodgers’ arm ended up being too much for them in the end. Rodgers finished with 203 yards, 1 touchdown, and no interceptions but even he acknowledged how good his defense was and that’s what won this team the game.
