Limping home after losing the road to the Minnesota Vikings in the first week, the Green Bay Packers of Aaron Rodgers play host Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears.
The Packers’ first-week woes continued into 2022 as the Bears smashed home wins over Tre Lance and San Francisco 49ers. Can the Bears team and first-year head coach Matt Eberfels maintain the momentum in Green Bay, or will Rodgers and Co. have a major revival in the face of North close to NFC? The game kicks off on Sunday at 8:20 PM ET from Lambeau Stadium.

Lorenzo Reyes: Packers 24, Bears 17
The Packers dominated the series, covering the last six of them against the Bears. And though Green Bay posted the opening last year before ripping through the first half of its 2021 schedule, questions about RB use and how the Packers make up for the loss of Davante Adams keep that streak out of reach for me.
Safeddin: Packers 27, Bears 19
The good news for the Packers: Vikings star Justin Jefferson isn’t on the other side. The bad news: The Bears may be ready for another hammer like in the opening game against San Francisco. Either way, Aaron Rodgers should play better. He threw an interception, lost a confusion and the Packers didn’t score even 5 minutes left in the third quarterback against Minnesota last week. Packers running their backs Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon will help set the tone in this.
Lance Pugmire: Packers 24, Bears 13
Aaron Rodgers wasn’t happy with the flat performances of the new receivers last week. If this went against his archenemy to the south as well, the situation would be more dangerous than a few balls dropped.
Garrett Bell: Packers 27, Bears 20
Nate Davis: Packers 31, Bears 17
Tyler Dragon: Packers 27, Bears 17
Parker Gabriel: Packers 21, Bears 13
Mike Jones: Packers 30, Bears 18
