With only a few days to forget about a disappointing Week 6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Chicago Bears must turn right back around and prepare themselves for a Thursday night showdown against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. The Bears (1-5) are obviously at the very bottom of the NFC North, and with a loss to the Packers in Week 7, they could possibly be the bottom feeders of the entire league.
Last season, Chicago was in a similar situation heading into their matchup against Green Bay on a short week. The Bears were coming off a two-point loss to the Denver Broncos, only to go into Green Bay as underdogs and upset the Packers. After their one-point loss to the Jaguars, Chicago will be hoping to shock the football world with another win over Green Bay on the not-yet-frozen tundra.
Things might be looking good for the Bears, considering that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been playing at the level everyone is used to seeing. But even with that playing a factor, let’s go into detail to see which team has the better chance of coming out on top.
