GREEN BAY, Wis. - Rookie outside linebacker Leonard Floyd provided one of the few bright spots for the Bears in Thursday night's 26-10 loss to the Packers at Lambeau Field.
The first-round draft pick from Georgia recorded the first two full sacks of his NFL career, one of which resulted in the Bears' first defensive touchdown in more than two years.
With the Packers facing third-and-10 from their own 15 early in the second half, Floyd twisted down quarterback Aaron Rodgers, poking the ball loose. Floyd scrambled after the fumble and recovered it in the end zone for a TD that gave the Bears a 10-6 lead.
"We had a great play called," Floyd said. "Willie [Young] came down and picked the guard for me and I looped around and the play was done and I made it," Floyd said. "It felt great [to score a touchdown], but at the end of the day I wanted a win."
Lopsided loss: The Packers dominated the Bears on the stat sheet, holding huge advantages in first downs (32-13), total yards (406-189) and time of possession (39:36-20:24). The 32 first downs are tied for the second most the Bears have ever allowed in a game.
Limping to finish line: The Bears have now been outscored 30-3 in the fourth quarter of their last two games. They blew a 13-0 lead entering the fourth period last Sunday in a 17-16 loss to the Jaguars and trailed only 13-10 through three quarters Thursday night in Green Bay.
Slow time of year: After playing two games in five days, the Bears will play just one contest in the next 23 days. They return to action a week from Monday night against the Vikings at Soldier Field before their bye.
On the ground: The Bears running game was limited to 69 yards on 18 carries. Ka'Deem Carey rushed for 48 yards on 10 carries and Jordan Howard added 22 yards on seven attempts. Since gaining 111 and 118 yards in his first two NFL starts against the Lions and Colts, Howard has mustered just 56 yards on 22 carries in his past two outings versus the Jaguars and Packers.
Impact plays needed: The Bears didn't score an offensive touchdown for the first time this season.
