Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears Preview
The NFC North picture has gotten a little more interesting in recent weeks with the Bears winning back-to-back games over Detroit and Vegas.
Chicago’s defence has largely led the way as rookie Justin Fields finds his feet under centre, but it’s no surprise to find the Bears as the home underdogs this week against the rival Packers.
Green Bay improved to 4-1 last week with an overtime win over the Bengals, but it wasn’t pretty at times.
Aside from Mason Crosby’s inaccuracy in front of the posts, Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the offence was held to just 25 points against a defence many consider below average.
Even so, the Packers have held Chicago’s number for a very long time – particularly at Soldier Field where they’ve won 10 of their last 11 games.
That said, the Green Bay defence is much weaker than it was last year, while I also have a big question mark over the Packers’ young offensive line against this lethal Bears pass rush.
The likelihood of the Rodgers – Davante Adams connection winning this for Green Bay seems high, but if the Bears can take some shots downfield and pressure No. 12, I think they’re very much in this.
