Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued his dominance over the Bears with a 24-14 win at Soldier Field. Rodgers is now 22-5 in his career against Chicago.

Why it matters: The Bears lost an opportunity to take over first place in the NFC North, instead falling to .500 and losing to the rival Packers for the fifth time in a row.

Justin Fields: The rookie quarterback played well in spurts, but his NFL inexperience hurt the Bears when they needed it most. He was sacked late in both halves to take the offense out of potential field goal opportunities.

Co-MVPs: The Khalil's. Khalil Mack and the defense did their part keeping the Packers in check for most of the game. And rookie running back Khalil Herbert ran for 97 yards and a score.

Co-LVPs: Again, the Bears safeties were atrocious. Tashaun Gipson missed two big tackles, one leading to a Packer touchdown, and Eddie Jackson was ineffective for most of the game.

Biggest play (that didn't count): Herbert ran for a 16-yard touchdown that was called back on a holding call by center Sam Mustipher. Replays showed the penalty (probably) shouldn't have been called.

Quick fact: The Bears are now 1-6 against the Packers under head coach Matt Nagy.

What's next: Chicago plays Tom Brady and the Buccaneers next Sunday in Tampa Bay.
