Pack­ers (3-4-1)

Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - BEARS -

11⁄2 games be­hind the Bears and Vik­ings

The Pack­ers are be­low .500 through eight games for the first time since coach Mike Mc­Carthy’s first sea­son in 2006. Need­less to say, pres­sure is mount­ing in Green Bay, where ex­pec­ta­tions were high that the team’s failed play­off bid last year was an aber­ra­tion at­trib­uted to quar­ter­back Aaron Rodgers miss­ing nine games. The Pack­ers are 0-4 away from Lam­beau Field, join­ing the Browns, Raiders, 49ers and Cow­boys as the only teams with­out a road vic­tory. That makes Week 11 at Seat­tle and Week 12 at Min­nesota huge. The Pack­ers dealt safety Ha Ha Clin­ton-Dix to the Red­skins, and while it wasn’t quite the white flag the Lions raised when they shipped re­ceiver Golden Tate to the Ea­gles, it makes you won­der. “We have lost games be­fore here, but this just feels dif­fer­ent,” re­ceiver Ran­dall Cobb told ESPN. “And it doesn’t feel good. It’s not fun. But we have to fig­ure some­thing out.”
