It’s the first of two Packers Weeks for Chicago Bears fans in 2022. The NFL’s oldest rivalry will kick off its 205th game on Sunday night, with the Green Bay Packers currently leading the all-time series 103-95-6.
If the Bears are going to swing that record back in Chicago’s favor (as it was for over 80 years), Sunday night seems like a great time to start. The Packers are reeling from a humiliating loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1, their offense appears disjointed, quarterback Aaron Rodgers had no chemistry with his receivers, the defense underwhelmed, and the offensive line is banged up.
Can the Bears win a second straight game against a team that very few people believe they can beat? We’ll find out Sunday night. Until then, let’s take a look at my three keys for a Chicago victory.
