One of the greatest rivalries in NFL history will continue tonight as the Chicago Bears go into Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. Both teams have what it takes to make deep playoff runs this year so a matchup this early should be quite interesting. The Bears are coming off a blowout win against the Colts where they were clearly more experienced and talented. The Packers however just lost to a 49ers team that looks even stronger than the one that made the NFC championship last year.
Since its only week two, it is tough to say this is a must win game for the Packers but it is pretty close. A loss here would make them 0-2 and two games behind the Bears and at least one behind every other team in the division. The Bears can’t afford to have Jay Cutler play the way he started last week as unlike the Colts, the Packers have the personnel to make him pay.
Prediction: Bears 23 Packers (-5.5) 27.
