It was 4th & 26.
Oh wait. Let me explain.
It was 4th & 26 but not that 4th & 26. It was week 2 of the 2012 season and the Packers were facing 4th & 26 at the Bears’ 27 yard line with 1:56 remaining in the first half. Neither offense looked great, with the Packers holding a 3-0 lead.
Being held scoreless to this point in the game is not what the Jay Cutler-led Bears were expecting. They added Brandon Marshall in the offseason, pairing him with rookie Alshon Jeffrey. Earlier in the week, Cutler wished the Packers secondary “good luck” attempting to match up with their receivers.
