Flip the coin and the Bears win. I know that Aaron Rodgers is the “better” quarterback, but there are 52 other guys on the roster. The Bears have the home field advantage and I believe it will make the difference in the end. The Bears by a field goal.

Bears. Pack. Soldier Field. It doesn’t get much better than this. Both of these offenses have had some major issues running the football and I think both teams have success this week against each other. Look for Rodgers to attack the deep middle and test the Bears’ banged up safety group, with some success. This has the looks of a high scoring game, but the Bear defense has been very opportunistic this year and able to get some key turnovers. That will be the difference in the game. I understand Cutler’s record is poor against Green Bay, but that improves this week as he has not had the talent around him that he has this year. I challenge the the Bears front 4 this week to pressure Rodgers without the need to blitz. Bear Down!
Bears 28 – Packers 24
Currently (2-0) on the road and (0-1) at home the Bears will look strengthen their position in the NFC North with a win against Green Bay.

I’m confident that the Bears defense shows up on Sunday. Cutler continues to improve. Pulling two games ahead of Green Bay would be huge.

The Packers have struggled to find their groove so far this season, and the Bears have gotten consistently better every week. I’m not one to pick against trends like that, so I’m going with the hot hand. With both defenses banged up, there should be some fireworks in this one.
Bears 34 – Packers 28
The Bears have waited for months on end to finally get their shot at redemption against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Luckily for Bears fans, they’ll get it behind a big performance from Matt Forte and the running game.
