Packers-Bears: Three keys

  • Print

In the trenches Line play will be important on both sides of the ball.  Chicago's offensive line has yielded just 11 sacks but most of that was with Jay Cutler at the helm.  What is unknown is if Josh McCown will be as effective as Cutler.  On the other side Chicago's defense has registered just nine sacks so Aaron Rodgers should have plenty of time to throw.

Ball security This is a different Chicago defense then we've seen in the past.  The pass rush isn't there.  Lance Briggs is out.  But one constant is that Chicago can still force takeaways.  The Bears were 4th in the NFC in takeaways coming into this week so once again, protecting the football is a must.

Marshall & Jeffery Chicago features two big, physical wide receivers and even with McCown at quarterback the Packers secondary will face a challenge here.  Defensively the Packers were in control for three quarters last week but a full four quarters is needed tonight.

Prediction Packers 30, Bears 16
