The TV numbers from last night's Bears-Packers game were impressive:
Report: Overnight ratings for opener up "14-15 percent" from last year https://t.co/J5KzLcGLRH— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) September 6, 2019
Like, really impressive:
The Bears talked all week about knowing how large the stage was on Thursday night and being better prepared to deal with it. Then they came out and only scored three points, raising some concerning questions along the way. Turns out, playing in front of huge national audiences isn't always a good thing.
The good news is that the Bears are back on national TV in 17 days, when they head to Washington D.C. for Monday Night Football.
