Bears start out strong against Packers, then the rest of the game happens

Call me foolish, but I always get excited for Packers week. Not because I’m foolish enough to believe the Bears will win, just that I’m foolish enough to hope the Chicago Bears will win. And when it happens, beating the Packers feels like a playoff win. So yeah, I let myself get excited. I got a lot more excited when the Bears stopped the Packers on their first drive, and then I got gut-churningly nervous after the Bears scored first. Luckily, the hope fizzled quickly enough that my stomach settled and I sank into the comfort of darkness.
