Packers QB Brett Hundley suffers hamstring injury

Questionable fumble call negates Bears touchdown against Packers

Although Montgomery worked his way back into the lineup, there was cause for concern since rib injuries can linger, especially among players who take a lot of hits such as running backs.

Rodgers laughed it off. Hundley deserved his props - the derided Packers backup is the reason why Green Bay escaped a Week 10 showdown in Chicago with a win. The win was not only significant in the standings for Green Bay, but also for Hundley's confidence, as he found a way to make plays in crunch time to pick up his first win as an National Football League starter.

Hundley was efficient with 212 yards passing on 18-of-25 attempts and one touchdown without an interception for a 110.8 passer rating, as the Packers toppled the Chicago Bears.

When asked what prompted his more forceful approach in practice last week, Hundley said: "Just myself".

Not only did quarterback Brett Hundley rally his Green Bay Packers team late in the game to earn the first victory in his starting tenure in place of Aaron Rodgers, he did it as a member of the running wounded.

"It tightened up on him", coach Mike McCarthy said during his press conference.

"He was upset but he kind of took over and said, 'Screw it, forget about what we got hurt on earlier, that was on me". Minus Aaron Rodgers and with the league's 25th-ranked defensive unit, the Green Bay Packers have their work cut out for themselves. Davante Adams and Randall Cobb have combined for 865 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Jordy Nelson has 33 receptions. They'll be at Soldier Field again in Week 11 for another division game against the Lions.

The Bears were then driving deep in Green Bay territory when their replay challenge near the goal line backfired in a huge way. Now he'll have to do it against a better team than the 3-6 Bears to prove he's for real.

"When I watched the review, I felt like they made the right call", he said. Check out NFL Sunday Ticket or NFL Game Pass. "Just a bad play on my part".

Green Bay had a fourth down at its own 29.
