Bears-Packers Week 1 opener garners impressive TV ratings

While the Chicago Bears failed to impress in their season opener against the Green Bay Packers, the ratings for Thursday night's game were another story.

"We didn't do them a whole lot of favours with our performance on offence". Green Bay had just 47 yards on the ground in the win.

"Hindsight's 20-20, and I knew if we didn't come out and perform well, there were going to be questions asked", LaFleur said. The Kickoff Game now stands as the year's 17th most-watched broadcast, slotting between CBS's post-Super Bowl premiere of the short-lived "World's Best" (22.2 million) and the 61st Annual Grammy Awards (19.9 million).

Thursday night's NFL Kickoff Game wasn't exactly one for the ages, but the 17-punt, 13-point defensive struggle between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears still managed to scare up a three-year ratings high for NBC. Aaron Rodgers had one touchdown pass in the second quarter while Bears QB Mitch Trubisky finished with an interception and nothing else.

Trump Challengers Angry Over States' Plans to Cancel Primaries
In January, the Republican National Committee voted to express its "undivided support" for Trump and his "effective presidency". However, although Sanford has been a frequent critic of Trump, he has said he would back the President instead of a Democrat.

Aaron Rodgers has become accustomed to carrying the Green Bay Packers, but it appears he now has some help. A run and a pass netted zero yards, then Rodgers was sacked heavily by Roy Robertson-Harris for a 10-yard loss. His modest line included just four completions to go-to target Davante Adams for 36 yards.

After a first quarter in which the Packers had minus-12 total yards, Rodgers said his thinking was, "It can't get any worse". Two more completions got the Pack to the 8, and Graham did what most former basketball players turned tight ends should, winning a jump ball in the end zone.

'Obviously unacceptable, ' said Nagy after the game.

Bears fans rejoiced in relief on the first score of the season: Pineiro's 38-yard first-quarter field goal. The last such kick on Soldier Field was Cody Parkey's double-doink off the goalpost and crossbar that sent Chicago home from the wild-card round. 'I wanted to make a big play to help us win'. "We just gotta be a little more consistent with it".
