Brett Hundley settling in for Green Bay Packers after win
CHICAGO -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Hundley rolled to his right and spotted wide receiver Davante Adams sprinting toward the front right corner of the end zone.
Hundley knew he had a small window to make a completion. He cocked his arm and released a perfect spiral.
The late score helped the Packers prevail with a 23-16 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon. Hundley earned his first victory since replacing Aaron Rodgers, who is out because of a broken collarbone.
"It was a great ball," said Adams, who scored with 5:29 to go in the fourth quarter. "It was the first thing I said as soon as I caught it. I forgot to celebrate because of how good a ball it was.
"That's the type of stuff Brett just has to do. When he's comfortable, he's going to make those plays."
Attention, opposing defenses: Hundley is getting more comfortable.
The third-year quarterback completed 18-of-25 passes for 212 yards and a touchdown on a soggy day at Soldier Field. He rushed two times for 16 yards and did not commit a turnover.
Hundley's passer rating has climbed from 39.9 to 86.0 to 110.8 in each of his three starts.
"I thought Brett Hundley played his best game of the year, just handling different situations, particularly high pressure in the fourth quarter," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. "Big play to Davante when we needed it."
Hundley excelled despite the fact that his hamstring tightened up during the game. He stayed on the field and said he would be ready for next week's matchup against the Baltimore Ravens at Lambeau Field.
"I'll be fine," Hundley said. "You figure it out and you keep going."
Hundley credits an elite group of wide receivers with aiding his development. Adams has emerged as his favorite target so far, but Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson also pose threats downfield.
"I'm happy to be throwing to any of them," said Hundley, who completed passes to nine players on Sunday. "You couldn't ask for a better receiving corps than that. For me, I feel good with all my matchups."
The Packers believe they can reach the playoffs despite an injury-riddled season. Their confidence is rooted in the "next man up" philosophy that every team preaches, but few actually execute.
"We just have to keep this momentum going," Hundley said with a smile. "We've got to ride the wave."
