It’s painfully obvious the Green Bay Packers aren’t the same offensive juggernaut they once were with Aaron Rodgers under center.
In fact, with Brett Hundley now running the show for the injured Rodgers, the Packers’ offense has been, for the most part, offensive. They are coming off back-to-back 17-point productions.
Yet, as sluggish as the Packers’ offense has been of late, it’s still better than the Chicago Bears’, their opponent today at blustery Soldier Field. The Bears’ offense has been MIA all season.
Get this: the Bears, who are six-point favorites against the Packers, have scored 23 or fewer points in seven of their eight games. Their 134 points this season is the second-fewest in the NFC, a measly five more points than the pathetic New York Giants have amassed.
The Bears are in a rebuilding mode and fighting to be respectable; the Packers are fighting for their playoff lives, two games behind first-place Minnesota in the NFC North.
Prediction: Packers 24, Bears 20.
