How the Packers could end up with a worse record than the Chicago Bears
The Packers could end up with a worse record than the Chicago Bears
Alright, just how bad could this get for the Green Bay Packers? Well, after a five-game losing streak, the Packers will now face off against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The Cowboys are sitting at 6-2 despite losing Dak Prescott for a decent chunk of the season. I feel confident that Mike McCarthy’s Cowboys can beat the Packers. The Cowboys are allowing the third-fewest points per game and scoring the 14th-most. Green Bay is averaging fewer points per game than the Chicago Bears. Love it.
After the Cowboys, the team faces a tough Tennessee Titans team and then a currently undefeated Philadelphia Eagles team. Realistically, the Packers could go on an eight-game losing streak. They just lost Rashan Gary for the season too. Let’s say they win one of those games though. They will face the Chicago Bears for the second time in Week 13. This time, the Bears will be the home team. Realistically, I think Chicago has a very realistic chance of winning that game.
If the Packers go 2-2 over the next four games (could easily be 1-3 or 0-4 to be honest), that puts their record at 5-8 going into their bye week in Week 14. After the bye, the Packers will face the Los Angeles Rams, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions. The Dolphins and Vikings currently have a combined record of 13-4. The Lions already beat the Packers and the Rams are bad but probably equally as bad as the Packers. I’ll give them another 2-2 split here and a final record of 7-10.
Now, can the Chicago Bears realistically finish with a better record?
