The Green Bay Packers showed a surprisingly fearsome defence to stifle the Chicago Bears 10-3 in the NFL season opener at Soldier Field.
The Bears offence were just unable to get going as they went down to their fierce rivals as the league kicked-off it's 100th season with a hard-hitting defensive contest.
The Bears were first on the board at Soldier Field but their drive stalled on the Green Bay 20 yard line and the side had to settle for a Eddy Pineiro field goal after 10 minutes.
The Packers responded quickly, with Aaron Rodgers connecting with Jimmy Graham for an eight-yard score early in the second quarter.
Eleven of the following 12 drives resulted in punts as both sides' defences held strong, before Mason Crosby slotted home a field goal for the Packers with five minutes left on the clock.
Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was picked off on the next drive and failed to convert a fourth down chance on the ensuing one as the Packers beat their NFC North rivals.
