After a closer-than-expected loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Bears fans were seen storming Soldier Field to celebrate losing by only eight points after notably losing 55-14 to the same team last year. As the crowd triumphantly surrounded the Bears, members of the team were seen spraying each other with champagne in celebration.

“This was a really great loss,” an exuberant Jay Cutler, who managed only one interception the whole game, told reporters as laughing teammates and fans hopped on his shoulders. “I mean, you know, when you’re hosting Green Bay to start the season, considering how we played last year, we were expecting to give up 50, 60 points at the very least. But only 31? That’s better than we ever could have imagined! Go Bears!”

New Bears head coach John Fox also took part in the festivities, saying, “This was a great game, we really gutted it out and we almost came close to not losing.┬áIt’s a great win for the great city of Chicago!”

Fox’s interview was cut short as Shea McClellin and rookie Jeremy Langford doused him with a cooler of Gatorade.
