The Packers may have just played their most complete game in 2020.

The Green Bay Packers move to 8-3 in this 2020 season, with a dominant performance against their longtime division rival, Chicago Bears. It was rather refreshing to see the team play at a high level on both sides of the ball for a full four quarters.

The offense came out of the gate firing on all cylinders, as they are one to do. The defense looked great as well and a weak Chicago Bears offense couldn’t get much going in this game.

As always after a win, let’s look at three players who had some nice games Sunday night.

Winner #3: Preston Smith

Preston Smith had a very nice game against Chicago and may have put him back on track for returning next season. The Packers could pretty easily move on from Smith after this season if they choose to.

With how poor his play has been in 2020 and with the emergence of last year’s first-round pick, Rashan Gary, it’s been looking like he may not be on the team after this year. As much as myself and many others love the Smith Bros. as a package, Za’Darius is clearly the better one and is one of the more feared pass rushers in the NFL.

Either way, it was good to see Preston have a productive game on Sunday. Bringing back a fumble for six points and getting himself a sack was great to see. Chicago has one of the worst offensive lines in the league and it was good to see the Packers defense get some pressure on them.
