Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears Preview

on

packers vs bearsThe Green Bay Packers are set to travel to Soldier Field in Chicago to take on the division rival Bears in a game that sees the Packers seeking their 2nd win on the season, as the Bears are looking to move to 3-1 as the quarter season mark approaches.

The Packers are coming into this week’s contest having lost their previous game to division rival Detroit by the score of 19-7 in a game where Aaron Rodgers was largely limited in his production. The Bears, on the other hand, are coming into this matchup of the oldest rivalry in professional football having won on Monday Night Football last week against the New York Jets 27-19.

The Packers are looking to avoid starting 1-3 on the season, as well as earn their 1st NFC North win of the season against their longtime rivals. If the Packers want to earn the win, they will need a much stronger performance from Aaron Rodgers and the offense so they can take advantage of the somewhat depleted Bears defense.

The Bears come into this matchup looking to earn what would be a rare victory over the Green Bay Packers since the arrival of Aaron Rodgers. If the Bears are going to earn the victory this week at home, they will need their secondary to be on point, perhaps getting another big game from rookie standout, through 3 weeks anyway, Kyle Fuller. They will also need a better performance from Brandon Marshall, who was limited to 1 catch for 6 yards on Monday.

The line for this game is set in favor of the Packers by 2 points, while the over/under is set at 50.5.

This should be one of the more exciting games this week in the NFL this week, and should end in a close one. The Packers eke out the victory on the road 35-34.
