LAST MATCHUP: The Bears pulled a stunning 21-10 upset of the Green Bay Packers in a Week 2 game at Lambeau Field. Two plays defined the game.
With the Packers trailing 7-3 but driving for the go-ahead touchdown in the final moments of the first half, a blitzing Brian Urlacher swooped into the backfield and jarred the ball loose from Packers running back Ahman Green. Safety Mike Brown picked up the ball and ran 95 yards to put the Bears in front 14-3.
Then, in the third quarter, Bears running back Thomas Jones broke loose for a 54-yard run to set up his 1-yard plunge. He accounted for all 79 yards on the six-play scoring drive that put the Bears up 21-3.
Jones rushed for 152 yards in the game. In a memorable quote, Packers linebacker Nick Barnett said, "I've never been in a fight where some guy told me he was going to beat me up and he beat me up."
The Packers picked up 234 in the opening half but managed just a field goal. Brett Favre threw two interceptions.
