The Green Bay Packers will beat the Chicago Bears by double digits tonight, mark it down, take it to the bank. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense is going to be too much for the Chicago Bears to handle. And while the Chicago Bears fans will be quick to point out that the Bears are 2-0, in reality even Bears fans know that they should be 1-1. Yes, the Bears traveled to Dallas and beat the Cowboys in their 1 Billion dollar stadium, but let’s be real about that move too, the Cowboys have not exactly been running like a Swiss watch.
The Bears come into tonight, with the 4th best passing offense in the league, but they are also going up against the number one rated pass defense after two weeks into the season. On the defensive side of the ball, the Packers are second in the league with 10 sacks after 2 weeks and the Chicago Bears really haven’t made any moves to solidify their offensive line.
Yes, the Packers are without RB Ryan Grant and have plugged little known RB Brandon Jackson in at running back, but with the Packers, the running back position is little more than a mere distraction. Aaron Rodgers will be airing it out early and often against a Bears team which is not very good against the pass. Expect to see a lot of TE Jermichael Finley and WR Greg Jennings tonight.
This will be the game where the real Jay Cutler will stand up and become a turnover machine. Don’t get me wrong, Cutler will move the Bears and get some points on the board, but his current ration of 5 touchdowns to one interception will be changed tonight.
Here’s what I expect to see in tonight’s game. For Chicago- Cutler 310 passing yards, 2 td’s 3 ints. Johnny Knox- 4 receptions 67 yards. Matt Forte- 70 rushing yards, 50 receiving yards 1 touchdown.
For Green Bay- Rodgers- 270 yards 3 touchdowns. TE Jermichael Finley 6 catches 110 yards 1 touchdown. Greg Jennings 125 yards 1 touchdown. Green Bay defeats Chicago 31-20.
