Bears Jaquon Brisker vows Jordan Love, Packers ‘will get theirs’ – NBC Sports Chicago

CHICAGO — CHICAGO — Bears safety Jaquon Brisker stood at his locker Sunday evening after the Green Bay Packers outcoached, out-classed and out-executed the Bears 38-20 in the season opener at Soldier Field. The sophomore defense is the emotional heartbeat of the Bears’ defense and is clearly boiling under the surface.

Sunday’s game should be the start of a new era in the Bears-Packers rivalry. With Aaron Rodgers gone, there was hope that the Bears could finally dominate the competition.

Instead, it looked old.

New Packers quarterback Jordan Love executed the game plan perfectly, going 15-of-27 for 245 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

The loss left the Bears defense reeling.

“I don’t even know how to answer that,” Brisker said of Love after the game. “He’s just Jordan Love. No. 10. The Packers quarterback. He’s nothing special.”

Sunday’s loss dropped Brisker to 0-3 against the Packers in his young Bears career and 0-2 in games played. Brisker missed the second game of last season with a concussion.

The Bears wouldn’t see the Packers again until the final game of the season.

Brisker is now focused on getting things right for a crucial Week 2 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but make no mistake, he’s got his sights set on a next date with the Packers.

“We’re definitely going to be,” Brisker said. “We’re going to focus on Tampa. We’ll see them again. They’ll get theirs.”
