THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
PACKERS @ BEARS
BEAST DOME NATION.
There was a time where the Packers were the best team in the NFC North not too long ago, while the Bears were nothing more than a last place team. The tables have turned as the Bears have become the team to beat in the NFC North. Opening night is going to be Wild in Chicago, does Aaron Rodgers have a chance?
Aaron Rodgers will be in shotgun often as there is no point for the Packers to run the ball on Eddie Goldman and Hicks. In shotgun, Rodgers will likely see a lot of pressure. Look for him to throw quickly to Jimmy Graham as a safe route option with Randall Cobb no longer in there. Davante Adams when he has the single coverage. Bears D is going to make it tough for Rodgers to get his game going. A lot of punting and rough offense for the Packers who have yet to play Rodgers at all.
The Packers Defense may have been the worst in the NFL this preseason. Nobody can tackle, and the Bears are not afraid to run HUGE run HEAVY in this matchup. Montgomery, Davis, Cohen, all these guys can break loose. Trubisky is going to have some sexy 1 on 1 matchups with Allen Robinson, expect Trubisky to attack that all game long. All in all, the Bears offense is going to dominate this game.
With the Bears offense dominating, and the Packers Offense having trouble getting any consistency going. The Bears will take opening night.
