    An injury-plagued night spelled doom for the Chicago Bears on Thursday night, as they fell 26-10 to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

    Quarterback Brian Hoyer suffered a broken left arm in the game, and offensive lineman Kyle Long was dealing with an arm injury of his own in the contest as the Bears fell to 1-6 on the season.

    The game got off to a slow start for both offenses, as Mason Crosby and Connor Barth traded field goals and left the Packers ahead by a 6-3 margin after the first half.

    The defensive matchup continued into the third quarter, and it was a Bears rookie that made the biggest play of the night for his team. With the Packers pinned on their own goal line, Leonard Floyd came around the edge, sacked Aaron Rodgers, and picked up a fumble for a touchdown and a 10-6 Bears lead.

    Five minutes later, the Packers took the lead back. To cap off a 13-play, 85 yard drive, Rodgers found Davante Adams open in the end zone for a five-yard touchdown pass to give the Packers a 13-10 lead.

    That score held until the fourth quarter, and it was Adams doing the damage again. This time the drive went for 88 yards, and Adams' second touchdown catch of the night from four yards out made it a 20-10 game just five seconds into the fourth quarter.

    The Packers added an insurance touchdown late in the game, as Rodgers threw a beautiful touch pass that Randall Cobb hauled in for a two-yard touchdown and a 26-10 lead.

    That lead would hold for the remainder of the game, and the Bears dropped to five games below .500 on the season.

    The Bears will have plenty of time off to ponder their next game, as they'll next take the field on Halloween when they battle the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football.
