Packers-Bears: Three Keys
Defending Forte Matt Forte has been responsible for a large chunk of Chicago's offense after two games so it should be a simple defensive game plan: shut down Forte and you shut down the Bears offense.
Pressuring Cutler Once again Chicago's offensive line is porous and in this young season Cutler has absorbed hit after hit. Chicago will likely try to slow the Packers pass rush with screens to Forte but when Cutler drops back the heat should be on. The Packers secondary is still in question but a solid pass rush will ease the pressure on the pass defense.
Special Teams Even with the new kickoff rule the Packers need to be careful with kick and punt coverage. If the Packers can win the field position battle they win the game because the Bears simply don't have enough firepower to stack together lengthy drive after lengthy drive. Aside from the momentum change, a big special teams play will result in good field position, making it easier for Chicago to score.
