NFC North Notes: Bears, Packers, Vikings

     

Bears

During the Bears’ kicking competition on Friday, the team’s kickers converted just two of eight attempts from 43 yards.

“Two for eight, that’s not good enough,” Bears HC Matt Nagy said. “Now I will say this: We always look at the end result of what happened, which is 100 percent what matters, but as we’re learning, two of those eight holds and snaps, it wasn’t 100 percent. I’ll leave it at that. We’ve got to work through that. That’s why after today we’re not going to go out and make rash, brash decisions or anything. We’re gonna play it out.”
