The Bears will take on the Packers on Thursday Night Football in Wisconsin. The two teams will meet in one of the earliest Thursday games an NFL season has seen. This is something that must have all NFL fans very excited as fans will now only have to wait two days at most before they can see NFL action. The Bears come into the game coming off of a big win against the Colts last Sunday. The Packers, on the other hand, come into the game with a loss under Aaron Rodgers Championship belt. Both teams will surely be ready to play in this very important early divisional matchup.
The Bears will look to extend the progress their offense has shown in their first game against the Colts. Then, they gained 428 yards in all while scoring 41 points. They did this by utilizing both a strong pass game and rushing game. They were able to get over 300 yards passing and over 100 on the ground to get the win in Chicago. Things may get a little more difficult, however, as the team will now travel to Lambeau Field in Green Bay, which is statistically the toughest stadium to play in for away teams.
The Packers will look to rebound after their loss Sunday to the 49ers. The high-flying Pack only managed to gain 324 yards and 22 points. The team must establish a running game if they have any chance of beating Chicago this Thursday. Last week the Packers got just 45 yards with the ground game. If Chicago can cause Green Bay to do the same, they should be sure to win.
