3 Reasons the Bears Will Upset the Packers

Defensive Improvement

Chicago’s defense dominated the 49ers in Week 1, forcing two turnovers and notching two sacks while limiting Trey Lance to a 46% completion percentage and 5.9 yards per attempt.

Fifth-round rookie Dominique Robinson was exceptional with seven tackles, 1.5 sacks and two quarterback hits. Between Robinson, Eddie Jackson, Roquan Smith, and Robert Quinn, the Bears have a strong defensive foundation to give Aaron Rodgers issues.

Packers Looked Awful

This improved Chicago defense catches Rodgers at the perfect time, because whew, the Packers looked atrocious in Week 1, scoring only seven points while Rodgers took four sacks and turned the ball over twice.

In his first game without Davante Adams, the reigning MVP completed 22/34 passes for only 196 yards with no touchdowns. Green Bay’s young wide receivers looked…young, and Rodgers’ frustrations were evident the entire game. If the Packers didn’t figure things out in the last few days, the Bears can take advantage of Green Bay’s miscues as the team tries to adjust on the fly.

Justin Fields’ Dual-Threat Ability

I’m a big believer in Justin Fields. Poor weather conditions limited what Chicago could do in Week 1, but I’m ready to see a breakout performance from the second-year signal caller.

Packers’ defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s defenses have long struggled against dual-threat quarterbacks, and Fields should take advantage of the deficiencies of Barry’s stubborn schemes.

It’s easy to imagine Fields picking up yards on the ground before uncorking a bomb down the sideline, or using Khalil Herbert to keep Green Bay guessing. Unless Barry starts to adjust, Fields should excel.

It’s a lot easier to place a big wager on the Bears at +350 knowing we can’t lose either way. Don’t forget to claim your $1,000 no-sweat bet from FanDuel Sportsbook before it’s too late. The Packers are vulnerable, so let’s take advantage as Chicago jumps out to an unexpected 2-0 start.
