5. Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears, September 5th
Yes, the Bears play the Packers every year, but this game is different. First of all, the Bears and Packers kicked off the 2018 season on NBC in a tale of two halves. As Bears fans, we are better off not revisiting the second half of week one, but we all know what happened.
Even more so, with the NFL having its 100th season celebration, the league has decided to make this the standalone game to kick off the season on Thursday night.
Every football fan in America will be tuned into to opening night as the Packers come to Chicago and the Bears look to avenge their week one debacle from a year ago.
Aaron Rodgers will be looking to prove he’s the best in the business after Russell Wilson surpassed his contract and Bleacher Report had their extensive piece that was highly critical of the Packers’ quarterback.
The Bears will want to prove they are for real. The Packers will be looking to regain the top spot in the division. It kicks off the NFL’s 100th season and it doesn’t get any better than that.
