Despite the 24-7 halftime deficit, the Chicago Bears are taking advantage of a glaring positional edge over the Green Bay Packers.

Getting pressure without blitzing is the formula to stall Aaron Rodgers and this potent Green Bay passing attack. So far the Bears’ pass rush has answered the bell.

Trevis Gipson (2) and Robert Quinn (1) are responsible for all three of the Bears’ sacks in the first half.

Watch as Gipson fights through a hold from Packers RT Elgton Jenkins, who is making his 2022 debut after working his way back from an ACL procedure, and wrestles Rodgers to the Lambeau Field grass.

The Packers’ undermanned offensive line is obviously vulnerable without starting left tackle, David Bakhtiari (knee) available.

Both Jenkins and right guard Jon Runyan (concussion) spent the entire week on the injury report, but were cleared to play hours before kickoff.

While the Bears’ pass rush is doing its job, the group will have to go above and beyond the call of duty to mount a comeback of this severity.
