Bears vs. Packers preview:

The Chicago Bears are off to a rough start to the season. The Bears enter this game coming off of back-to-back losses to the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars to give them a 1-5 record. After starting off the season with three straight losses, the Bears finally go a win against a divisional opponent, the Detroit Lions. That is their only win on the season, and the road does not get any easier with a trip to Green Bay on Thursday.

The Packers are an interesting story so far this season. Aaron Rodgers is having possibly his worst season as a pro, and starting running back Eddie Lacy is highly questionable to play against the Bears. Despite coming off of a loss to the Cowboys, Green Bay still sits at a respectable 3-2 on the season.

The Bears and Packers have faced each other 192 times in history. The Bears hold a 93-91-6 advantage in the regular season, and the two teams have split their playoff match-ups.

Bears vs. Packers prediction:

Sooner or later, Aaron Rodgers is bound to have a huge game. Why not against the Bears terrible defense?

With the running back questions, Rodgers will put the team on his back, throwing for over 300 yards and a few touchdowns.
