It’s been a one-sided rivalry recently as the Green Bay Packers attempt to continue their recent Chicago Bears dominance.
Is Matt Nagy’s team finally finding their groove? After a 1-2 start, the Chicago Bears have recorded consecutive wins over the Detroit Lions and Las Vegas Raiders. This latter victory resulted in the club capping silver and black to a season low of nine points.
This week’s opponent is of course different. For each of the past two seasons, the Bears have been swept by Matt LaFleurs Club. Chicago was a 16-16 player during that period, and a quarter of those setbacks were attributable to NFC North rivals from Wisconsin.
Don’t be surprised if this is a defensive bout that is running out of points as the Bears and Packers (including the playoffs) renew their acquaintance for the 203rd time.
5. Bears allow more than 150 yards
The team has been pretty steadfast against the run this season. Chicago ranks 12th in the league in a hurry after five weeks of play. But Green Bay’s ground attack, capped at 43 yards in the Week 1 debacle against the Saints, has increased its production in every fan since then.
Matt LaFleur’s team rushed 133 yards in last week’s overtime win in Cincinnati. A week earlier against the Steelers, the Packers rolled 131 meters above the ground. Look out for the game plan, which features high doses of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. Will the bears’ defense be up to the challenge?
