Bears score first with touchdown run from rookie Khalil Herbert




 

The Bears struck first with rookie running back Khalil Herbert's first career rushing touchdown as the Packers struggle with red-zone defense.

With David Montgomery on injured reserve with a knee sprain and Damien Williams on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Herbert is now the featured running back. And he got off to a solid start against Green Bay.

Justin Fields was 3-for-3 on an eight-play, 80-yard drive completing passes to Darnell Mooney for 11 yards and Allen Robinson for 20 yards.

The Bears lead 7-0 in the first quarter.
