NFC North rivals meet as the Chicago Bears head into Lambeau Field on Thursday night to take on the Packers.
Both teams coming in to this one reeling a bit, as the Bears are just 1-5, while the Packers were embarrassed at home by rookie Dak Prescott and company.
The Bears continue to find new ways to lose every week.
Chicago comes in off a 17-16 loss to the Jags at home last week, as they coughed up a big lead in the 2nd half.
QB Brian Hoyer was still solid, as he finished with 302 yards on 30 of 49 passing. While they did manage just 16 points, the loss is certainly not on him as he gave Chicago every chance in the game.
While it’s tough to find encouraging signs out of a 1-5 team, WR Cameron Meredith is really becoming a solid option out wide. Meredith finished with 113 yards on 11 catches against the Jags, making this the 2nd straight week he’s went over the 100 yard mark.
The Bears managed just 92 yards on the ground against Jacksonville, something they’ll certainly have to improve on here against Green Bay.
Chicago haas been putting a lot of pressure on Hoyer and his arm, as the run game just isn’t threatening enough for defenses to worry about.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers were easily one of the most disappointing teams last week, as they were absolutely dominated by the Dallas Cowboys at home.
QB Aaron Rodgers finished with 294 yards and added a touchdown to go along with an interception, as he struggled to find his rhythm all afternoon long.
Green Bay now sits 2 games behind the Vikings for first place in the division and if they hope to improve, it’ll certainly have to start with their run game.
The backfield produced just 78 yards on 24 rushes, as their lack of playmaking abilities on the ground is allowing opposing defenses to just hang back and wait for the pass.
Getting Eddie Lacy going, especially early here, is almost a must. It’ll open the pass game up for Rodgers.
Green Bay has had a lot of recent success against Chicago, going 4-1 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 head to head.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Chicago +9
Green Bay just hasn’t looked like themselves.
The Packers struggles stem from the running game and Eddie Lacy hasn’t been able to show any signs of improving. Expect Chicago to keep this close.
