Chicago is second in the NFC North, 5-5 overall, 3-2 away, and have lost four games in a row. The Bears are 5-5 ATS. The offense is last in the NFC in points scored and second in points allowed. The Chicago offense ranks towards the bottom of the NFL in a fair amount of key stats and they are last in rushing yards, and second to last in total score and yards per play. The Bears offense scores around 19 points per game. The defense is slightly above average and the team is top ten in total score and yards per play. They allow around 21 points per game.
The last three losses have been by a touchdown or less. Two of those three games were against above .500 teams. Two weeks ago, the Bears lost to the Minnesota Vikings 19-13. It was a game of field goals and the only Chicago touchdown was a kick return. Quarterback Nick Foles went 15 of 26, for 106 yards, and 1 interception. The Bears defense and lack of penalties kept them in this game and the offense needs to pick up the production.
Green Bay is first in the NFC North, 7-3 overall, and 3-1 at home. The Packers are 6-4 ATS. The offense is third in the NFC in points scored and tenth in points allowed. The Green Bay is top ten in a lot of key offensive areas and they are ranked second in time on the field. They average around 31 points per game. The defense is average, but they are good at getting quick stops, when they need to, and also limiting the number of plays on the opponents drives. The Packers haven’t lost two games in a row all season and the last two games have been close ones.
Last week, the Packers lost in overtime to the Indianapolis Colts 34-31. Green Bay blew a 14 point halftime lead, and lost on a field goal. It was a frustrating loss and a loss that the team can learn from. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers went 27 of 38, for 311 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Three receivers averaged good yardage and the third downs were solid, but they need to limit the sloppy turnovers and not get complacent.
Head to Head
This will be the 201st all-time meeting between the Bears and Packers. Green Bay leads the series with a 99-95-6 record. In the last ten games, the Packers are 8-2 and 6-4 ATS. The over/under is 5-5. Green Bay scores around 23 points and Chicago is around 17. The Bears have the edge in passing yards, but the Packers are better in rushing yards and total yards.
Our Bears vs Packers Picks & Predictions
The Bears offense has struggled for weeks and now they must face the third best offense in the NFC. Maybe the rivalry will spark something for Chicago, but most likely, the team will have more field goals than touchdowns. The defense has been able to keep things close for the Bears and if they didn’t have that, then this team would have a losing record. With the Packers coming off of a brutal loss and a chance to widen their division lead to three games, you can bet that they will come out ready to play. This game will be about production and taking advantage of turnovers. The Bears defense will slow down Rodgers a bit, but it won’t be enough. Packers win 27-13 and cover the spread.
