In a post-game statement, Bears quarterback Justin Fields expressed his disappointment following a tough 38-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the 2023 season opener in Chicago on Sunday.

Despite the departure of Aaron Rodgers, who was traded to the Jets during the offseason, the Bears still couldn’t break their losing against their arch-rivals.

Fields didn’t mince words when describing the defeat, saying, “It sucks. It sucks. Rivalry, Week One, going against the Packers, it sucks. Nobody’s in good spirits. This one hurts. I’m not going to lie to you. I want to say sorry to teammates, to fans who were rooting for us. But we’ll bounce back.”

Fields’ performance mirrored the team’s struggles as he completed 24 of 37 passes for 216 yards, managing one touchdown but throwing an interception that resulted in a pick-six.

Additionally, Fields was sacked four times and had a costly fumble during the game.

Looking ahead, the Bears face a challenging matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their next game, who recently secured a 1-0 start with a victory over the Vikings.

To avoid falling to an 0-2 record, Fields and the entire team will need to elevate their performance.
