Monday was a very eventful day in the NFC North as the Green Bay Packers took to the field against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Green Bay as per usual looked impressive on the field and came away with another win at Lambeau Field.

South in the North

Of the four teams in the NFC North, one team were very active on Monday as the Chicago Bears completed two trades.


Have the Bears done some good business today? Have your say by signing up now to become a GMS writer:

Chicago haven't made a good start to the season as they are now 0-3 and have so far lost quarterback Jay Cutler and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery to injury.

The Bears are one of four teams who are 0-3 so far this season and they are facing big problems under new head coach John Fox.

Fox came after a questionable year in charge of the Denver Broncos last year and so far his new team have been even more questionable.

However they made two moves today as they are clearly n ow looking to make some changes to their defense.

It started with the announcement that pass rusher Jared Allen had been traded to the Carolina Panthers for a 2016 draft pick.

Allen was only in Chicago for a year but the 11 year veteran will now be a valuable addition to the Panthers defense.

Just hours after Allen was traded, the Bears also announced that linebacker Jon Bostic had been traded to the New England Patriots.

Bostic being traded has started rumours of a fire sale in Chicago with some expecting all the big stars to leave Soldier Field.

Chicago were arguably one of the favourites to have the worst record this season and they have certainly started that way.

A big defensive shuffle in Chicago could be just what the team needs but coming in week three, does it just condemn the Bears to a bad year?
