DAVID MONTGOMERY EXPLAINS HIS SUCCESS IN THE PACKERS GAME

SEP 20, 2022  (11H36)      V. CARBONNEAU
David Montgomery was one of the brightest spots in the Bears-Packers game, heck, he was the brightest spot. Even though he did not get that many carries, he was so efficient and he was able to carry this offense on a few drives. He gained 122 yards on 15 attempts.

"The O-line did a great job of creating some space and I just kind of took what I saw," Montgomery said.

His longest run was good 28 yards and he averaged 8.1 yards per carry Sunday night after being held to 26 yards on 17 carries on a flooded field in the season opener in Chicago.

"When he's able to cut on solid turf, it's pretty special," said tight end Cole Kmet. "It makes guys want to block a little harder and a little longer."

Asked if the Bears entered Sunday night's game planning to run the ball as much as they did, Montgomery said: "It was just the flow of the game; just go with what's working at the moment and it was working, so we stuck [with] it."

The first drive of the game was truly something special for the Bears. Montgomery rushed for 38 yards on four carries and Fields completed a 30-yard pass to Equanimeous St. Brown off a flea-flicker to fuel the Bears' only touchdown drive of the game.

"It felt good," Montgomery said. "We've just got to do it more often and help our defense out a little bit."

It was the Bears' first TD on an opening drive in a road game since Week 16 of the 2020 season in Jacksonville.
