Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears Prediction

Now we know what Aaron Rodgers was contemplating retiring. Without Devante Adams, the Packers offense looked ugly in Week 1.

The Packers scored just seven points against the Minnesota Vikings. Rodgers had ab QBR of 16.1 and threw for an average of 5.7 yards per catch. He also went 22-for-34 and had an interception on the day.

To his credit, some of the balls thrown were flat-out dropped. Overall, the team's running back, A.J. Dillon, had the most receptions for the Packers in this game.

It will take time for Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson to develop in this offense. Those are two receivers that have a bright future with the team. Doubs had 37 yards on four catches, while Watson hauled in two catches for 34 yards.

Meanwhile, the Bears played in ugly weather. It rained their entire game against the 49ers, and the field was almost a pool. Therefore, some of their stats and results were a bit skewed. I'm not saying they would've lost if the weather was kinder, but I'm also not saying they would've won.

Either way, the Bears were terrible against the run and didn't tackle all that well. They never had to worry about clamping down in coverage with the rain, but they forced Trey Lance to go 13-of-28 from the field.

The 49ers still rushed for 4.8 yards a carry against the Bears. So that was essentially where their weakness showed in game one.

Meanwhile, the Bears allowed Justin Fields to throw just 17 times. He completed eight passes. Instead, the Bears ran 37 times and only gained 99 yards. The run blocking wasn't great, but ultimately, Khalil Herbert and David Montgomery could probably do better on the ground when given the opportunity.

The Bears have a solid receiving core, and the pass protection was reliable against the 49ers. Fields only took two sacks and still had two touchdowns thrown. The Bears will utilize their pass catchers a bit more in this game. This group is led by Darnell Mooney, who only hauled in one catch. He was given a ton of volume last year, which should end up being the case moving forward.

The Packers are currently 10-point favorites against the Bears at home. Allen Lazard is still listed as questionable, leaving Rodgers with the same group of receivers as yesterday if Lazard doesn't return.

I'm not high on the Bears and believe that their first win of the season was a bit of a fluke, thanks to poor weather. However, I still like the Bears to stick around in this game. I'll grab the Bears at +10.
