Bears vs. Packers 2022: 4 matchups to watch

Football is the ultimate team sport. One player cannot carry a team to victory like we often see in other sports. All eleven men on the field need to pull together, even if they’re facing the very best of the best.

This week, as the Chicago Bears take on the Green Bay Packers for the 205th time, there are four key match-ups to watch. Let’s break each one down.

WR Darnell Mooney vs CB Jaire Alexander

This is the match-up that will probably garner the most attention. The Bears’ promising young wide receiver versus one of the best cornerbacks in the league. If the Bears want to win this game, Mooney will need to be a big reason why. He needs to get open often and early in his routes to take pressure off of quarterback Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears’ unproven offensive line.

DE Dominique Robinson vs the Packers OL

The Packers’ offensive line is in trouble right now, with starters David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins still recovering from injuries. It’s uncertain whether or not they’ll play on Sunday. Either way, this match-up is an opportunity for Robinson to prove that his seven tackle, 1.5 sack performance last week wasn’t a fluke. He will have to take advantage of his match-ups, apply consistent pressure on quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and not let him pull off any of his trademark ‘Hail Mary’ touchdown passes.
