The feud between the Bears and Packers is the most played rivalry in the NFL, with at least 192 regular and post-season games between them. Since they’re in the same division, the NFC North, they play at least twice each season. Going into this game, Chicago leads the series, 94 to 92 (with 6 draws.)
Green Bay might get close to evening the score. The 1-5 Chicago Bears are not the Monsters of the Midway of legend. After losing 17-16 to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Bears’ wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey, 26, was clearly upset. “We ‘ve got to score some f***ing touchdowns!” he said, per NFL.com. With the Packers having a poor passing defense, perhaps Alshon will get his wish?
After all, Brian Hoyer, 31, the Bears’ QB, has a four-game streak of throwing 300-plus passing yards. He has yet to throw an interception. However, he has a 48.3% completion rate for red zone passes and during that game with the Jaguars, Brian went 5-for-13 on passes that went more than 10 yards. That’s troublesome. With Jay Cutler, 33, sidelined with a thumb injury, Brian is the Bears’ only hope for a win in Green Bay.
He might be the only quarterback lighting up the scoreboard in this game. Aaron Rodgers is in a slump, and the two-time MVP has a 60.2% completion rate, which is 26th in the league, per CBS Sports. If Aaron remembers who he is, he might lead the Pack to their fourth victory. Or, if Brian fixes the kinks in his passing game, Chicago might finally get that elusive second win.
Who do you think will walk out of Lambeau Field with the victory, HollywoodLifers? Are you backing the Bears, or are you shouting “Hey! Ho! Go Pack Go!”
