If the Bears were looking for something to hang their hats on Sunday, the Packers locker room was full of players saying the 89-yard punt return for a touchdown by Johnny Knox was the greatest play they've ever witnessed.

NEW ORLEANS — Last year, the Bears waited until their off week at midseason to have a meeting about how the offense was being run.
