Chicago Bears vs Packers: Madden 21 prediction for Week 12

Coming off of a bye week, the Chicago Bears are set to face their biggest rival, the Green Bay Packers, on Sunday night in Green Bay. Could it get any better than this? They are putting their playoff hopes on the back of Mitch Trubisky once again, as he was named the starting quarterback for the first time since Week 3. The Bears need to win this one to stay in contention for a playoff spot, but it will not be easy.

To predict a possible outcome for the game, we simulated the matchup in Madden 21. The simulation resulted in the Packers winning 31-21. This would be super unfortunate if it were the final score on Sunday night, so hopefully, the simulation is wrong this week. Here are some key stats for both teams:

Chicago Bears:

  • Mitch Trubisky – 28/43 completions, 285 yards, two touchdowns, one interception, three carries, 46 yards
  • David Montgomery – 17 carries, 89 yards, one touchdown, four catches, 36 yards
  • Allen Robinson – eight catches, 87 yards, one touchdown
  • Darnell Mooney – five catches, 72 yards
  • Jimmy Graham – four catches, 42 yards, one touchdown
  • Roquan Smith – eleven tackles, two tackles for loss
  • Tashaun Gipson – eight tackles, one sack
  • Khalil Mack – six tackles, one sack, three tackles for loss
  • Akiem Hicks – seven tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss

Green Bay Packers:

  • Aaron Rodgers – 26/34 completions, 271 yards, three touchdowns, two carries, 13 yards
  • Aaron Jones – 21 carries, 106 yards, one touchdown, six catches, 45 yards, one touchdown
  • Davante Adams – nine catches, 113 yards, one touchdown
  • Robert Tonyan – four catches, 61 yards, one touchdown
  • Adrian Amos – twelve tackles, one interception
  • Preston Smith – seven tackles, two sacks
  • Kenny Clark – eight tackles, one sack, three tackles for loss
  • Za’Darius Smith – four tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss

On paper, it was not a bad game for the Bears, but they were not able to stop the Packers’ offense from scoring. Rodgers and Jones were great for Green Bay, and their success made it hard for the Bears to get stops. In his first game back, Trubisky was good, but not great. The offense was not bad, but the Packers’ defense was great. They sacked Trubisky seven times, which completely altered the Bears’ offense.

In the end, the Packers’ offense was too much for the Bears’ defense. On Sunday, the Bears will need their defense to keep Green Bay out of the endzone in order to keep it manageable. If they allow 31 points on Sunday night, the Bears will struggle to keep up with their stagnant offense. The Bears will only be as good as their defense comes Sunday night.

Hopefully, the Madden 21 simulation was wrong about Week 12, and the Bears can get a much-needed win to end their four-game skid. It is going to be a fun one in Green Bay on Sunday Night Football.
