The Chicago Bears were one of the Week 1 surprises, defeating a club that has the potential to go far in the season at home, the San Francisco 49ers, 10-19. In order to do that, however, they had to come back from a three-point hole at the start of the fourth quarter.
Perhaps that result wasn’t entirely deserved after the Bears ran for just 220 total yards, which is the worst figure among all NFL teams after Week 1.The team’s triumph was secured by a flash of brilliance from quarterback Justin Fields, who completed two touchdown passes, allied with a strong defense at critical moments.
However, improving offensive production is something they must do if they don’t want to rely on their defense for the entire season.
Betting on the Green Bay Packers
- Season record: 0-1
- Spread: -10
- Moneyline: -500
- Over/Under: 42.5
Was Davante Adams’ departure enough to end the Green Bay Packers’ season? The team clearly lacked ideas and explosiveness on offense in its Week 1 game,which they ended up losing 7-23 to a divisional rival like the Minnesota Vikings. If they lose this game to the Bears, they will fall well behind in their division.
That game saw Aaron Rodgers throw the ball to ten different receivers, but none of them managed to exceed 50 yards rushing, while his only touchdown in the game came on the ground thanks to AJ Dillon.
The Packers ran for only 227 yards through the air total, and if they don’t want to lose again, they must start finding solutions to their air-game difficulties.
The Packers may not find solutions to their offensive struggles in this game, as they will be facing a Chicago Bears team that recognizes its strength resides in its ability to defend and win with few points, so they will focus all of their efforts on stopping Rodgers and company.
Green Bay’s defense, especially the secondary, looked pretty bad against Minnesota, but the Bears don’t have a Justin Jefferson to fear or a high-level quarterback who can pose a consistent threat, so they should do a good enough job of containing Chicago.
With all this in mind, the game is likely to be quite close and scoring opportunities will be few and far between.
Odds: Under 42.5 (Bears 17 – Packers 24)
