It was just one game. There are 15 more games this season. Sure, the Chicago Bears lost to the hated Green Bay Packers on Thursday night 10-3. In case you forgot, Chicago lost the opener in 2018 to Green Bay as well. Then what happened? The Bears won 12 of their last 15 to win the NFC North at 12-4. The Packers won only five more games to finish 6-9-1. So what does one game really mean? If historical data means anything, the first game means very little. In 2018, half of the NFL’s playoff teams lost their first game. So there’s no need to panic.
