The Chicago Bears will get a chance to get back at Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers this Sunday night at Lambeau Field.
On October 14 of the last season, the Packers got a 24-14 win over the Bears to give them a lead in historical stats as they are 22-5 in matchups against Chicago. Yet, it was Rodgers’ trash talk that might just spark the Bears to build some last-minute momentum with only four games left in the regular season.
Leading the NFC North Division with a 9-3 season record, Green Bay is ready to strengthen their overall winning status over the Bears and prove why the team has truly earned the right to be considered a high-potential championship squad for what remains of the regular season. But, according to Rodgers, the squad is more than ready to face the Bears this Sunday night.
Maybe it’s too late to get back from a 4-8 season record and a third spot at the NFC North, but the Bears are more than willing to try, especially against the team that walked away with a win and did some trash-talking last season.
To Chicago’s safety Tashaun Gipson, Rodgers’ trash talk is one of the last things the Bears will focus on as they step onto Lambeau Field. To Gipson, there is simply a need to get a solid season-ending streak and attempt for a last-minute effort to make it to the postseason.
The Bears will have to forget about their 1-4 record over their last five performances and focus on getting a win over Green Bay that could close the gap between them and the second-place Minnesota Vikings. That all sounds great but will be quite challenging to execute.
The Bears’ are eighth overall in rushing with 125.1 yards per game but are 30th in the NFL in scoring with 16.8 points per game. Their defense also gives up 23.9 points per game. This means the Bears will have a lot of work to do if they have any hope of putting together some wins and making it to the playoffs.
Green Bay’s confidence doesn’t just come from Rodgers’ comments after last season’s game. To the Packers, more than just holding on to historical stats that point to their apparent dominance over their Chicago rivals, they are just the only favorable contenders in their division. That might just be enough.
Green Bay sits at the top of the NFC North as the only squad with a winning record. However, the Vikings stand at 6-7 and are looking to close the gap between the teams over the last remaining games. Whether or not they can pull this off is another story.
Packers 3-2 over their last five games and looking for an extra confidence boost as they push to for a solid home win. For Green Bay, it’s Rodgers’ 2,878 Passing Yards and his 23 touchdowns that back them up with a trustworthy leader on the field. That seems enough for the Packers to feel confident at the top.
The odds are looking better for the Packers. But, unfortunately, there is not much else to say to prove that the Packers are simply sitting in a better spot and will be arriving at Lambeau Field with some noticeable confidence. Overall for the Bears, the numbers are simply not in their favor.
It’s more than fair to place the Packers at the top. All numbers, including odds, are leaning over to Green Bay’s side. A consistent performance will prove enough to beat their Chicago rivals.
For the Bears, a last-minute effort might just give them a season turnaround over a squad with true championship potential and keep their playoff hopes alive.
