McCarthy says Packers need to clean up

Coach Mike McCarthy says the Packers 27-20 loss to the NFC North rival Chicago Bears came down to a simple fact. The Packers didn't take care of business.

McCarthy says the Packers need to clean their house because it's pretty sloppy right now.

The coach says the team practices ball security every single day, yet in the last two weeks that effort hasn't shown up on game day.

The Packers committed five turnovers and squandered a chance for their first 5-0 start since 1965, when Vince Lombardi prowled the sidelines and the first Super Bowl had yet to be played.

Brian Griese threw two touchdowns and the Bears scored 17 unanswered points to give Lovie Smith his fourth consecutive victory at Lambeau Field.
