Those giant foam cheeseheads are hanging a little lower across America's Dairyland today following the Bears 21-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers. In the NFL's biggest upset so far this season, the Bears beat their big rival to the North with a combination of a strong running game and tough defense. And new coach Lovie Smith fulfilled his number one goal.

Running back Thomas Jones ran for 152 yards, the defense intercepted Brett Favre twice and Brian Urlacher forced a fumble that was run back 95 yards by Mike Brown for a TD.

The Lambeau victory came at a high price, however. The Bears lost Safety Mike Brown for the season with an achilles tendon injury. With Jerry Azumah already out for most -- if not all -- of the season, the Bears secondary is looking very thin.

Next up for the Bears is the Minnesota Vikings September 26th.
