In a game from NFL Week 1, we will see Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers.
Green Bay and Chicago will all look forward to taking the lead in their division on Sunday when they meet in the season opener. The second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky is leading the line for the Bears. He has a new offensive coordinator and plenty of new faces on offense. Allen Robinson, Trey Burton and Taylor Gabriel will try to accelerate Trubisky’s growth while the real treasure Chicago have is on defense.
The Packers improved their defense a lot during the off-season with the acquisition of rookies Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson but the real improvement is at the quarterback spot where A-Rod returns healthy. Even if the defense is a lot better this year, we all know that Rodgers is the key to success in Green Bay and that the Packers will go as far as their quarterback takes them.
Green Bay has 16 wins in 19 games against Chicago. The Packers have won by eight or more points in 10 of the last 12 games against the Bears. While Mitch Trubisky has a year’s worth of experience and Jordan Heyward helps him a lot with his running game, the offense lacks a go-to guy at wide receiver and a pass-catching tight end.
