The Bears may have lost to the Packers at Soldier Field on Sunday but it appears they are winning in Wisconsin.

According to a report from DICKS Sporting Goods, Matt Forte leads all players in jersey sales in Wisconsin. That means Forte is outselling Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Eddie Lacy and Jordy Nelson in their home state.

The sales could be misleading however. When asked about the feat, Forte told ESPN,

“I saw it on the Internet, yeah,” Forte said. “There must be a lot of Bears fans in Wisconsin. Either that or they’re buying it to burn it or something. I don’t know.”

Let’s hope that this isn’t the only victory the Bears will claim over the Pack this year.
