The Chicago Bears have a chance to get over a hump and take over the torch from Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday
The Chicago Bears win over the Los Angelas Rams signified that this team is here. They are in the playoff hunt and are hot. However, it also puts them in an opportunity where they have to face the Green Bay Packers, and get over a hump that has held them back forever.
I do not need to get into the history. We know about the shortcomings Chicago has had against #12 from the green and yellow. We know the most recent playoff match. Heck, the Chicago Bears lost last season to a team led by Brett Hundley.
They were favored in that game, and the loss likely signified the end of the John Fox era. Earlier this year Rodgers mentioned that he had to go into Chicago and win for a chance at the playoffs. He noted that he has done that before. He is not wrong.
Of course, this is a different team. Chicago has never had a coach this competent to take on Aaron Rodgers. This will be the best defense Rodgers heads to Chicago to face.
This is a chance for the Chicago Bears to start a new chapter. To take the baton. They have the chance to end the Packers season. Officially eliminate them from the playoffs. They can not only do that, but they also propel themselves into a walkaway to the division and an easy NFC North crown.
Of course, we all know what happened the first time Nagy took on Rodgers with this revitalized defense. We thought we saw the changing of the guards in that game until Aaron Rodgers went all Aaron Rodgers and made the Bears pay.
Throw out the records. Throw out the fact that the Bears are the better team. This is an emotional games that means a lot. This is Aaron Rodgers with his season on the line against a team he feels he owns. Can the Chicago Bears get over the hump?
