Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at Grab a cup of coffee (or brew some tea, if that’s your thing) and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers after their 35-14 win over the Chicago Bears.

We’ll start with Ryan Wood’s look at the game through a historic lens.

From Ryan:

In the 195th game of a series that dates back to 1921, the Green Bay Packers won the rubber match.

The Packers trounced the Chicago Bears early and didn’t look back, winning 35-14 on Thursday night at Lambeau Field. Before the Bears had their second offensive snap, the Packers led, 14-0. The first half ended with the Packers scoring three touchdowns, and the Bears providing three turnovers.

Not even a 46-minute weather delay between the first and second quarters slowed them down.

The win improved the Packers to 3-1 this season, but there was even more historical significance. For the first time since 1933, the Packers lead the all-time series against their longest rival 95-94-6.
