It was meant to be a party, a celebration. Brett Favre was home and he stood proudly next to Bart Starr as the Packers fans watched his No. 4 jersey get retired. And what better way to celebrate a historic evening than to beat up the Chicago Bears in primetime?

Oh, you may want to consult the Bears first, because they clearly didn’t get the memo. The Bears came to play, and the gloomy conditions closely resembled the product the Packers were putting on the field. Dropped passes, costly turnovers and the inability to win in crunch time.

This loss alone isn’t what’s worrying for the Green Bay Packers, but rather the body of work displayed over the past month. The Packers have lost four of their past five games, and time is running out for them to get back in sync.

Next: No. 11
