Special Teams: C+

It was a so-so night for the Packers’ special teams unit. There weren’t any huge plays by their special teams, but they did give up one big punt return. Overall, rookie JK Scott booted the ball four times for a 48 yard average including one inside the 20. Bears’ returner Tarik Cohen returned one of them 42 yards, the low spot for the unit.

Mason Crosby, the Packers only sure player on the unit, connected on his only field goal attempt from 42 yards and made all three of his extra points.

Randall Cobb filled in for Trevor Davis who was a late scratch because of a hamstring injury. Cobb returned his only put for 17 yards and showed off his lightning quickness.
