CHICAGO -- The Packers offense did just enough against a relentless Bears defense, and the Packers defense showed they're a much better unit than last year as the Packers started off the NFL's 100th season with a 10-3 victory.

The offense did not get off to a good start - three straight three-and-outs to start the game -  but rebounded just enough to get the 10-3 win.

The Packers defense was the star of the night, sacking Mitchell Trubisky five times, picked him off once, and almost intercepted multiple other passes, shutting the third year QB down.


Packers will head home 1-0 on the early season, they'll take on the Vikings next Sunday from Lambeau Field
