The regular season will begin again on Thursday night. The game starts with two of the biggest rivalries in football.
In this match, the Green Packers will travel to Soldier Field to face the Chicago Bears.
Green Bay Packers
A major change has occurred with the Green Bay Packers, they replaced Mike McCarthy and appointing Matt LaFleur as the team’s new head coach. The coaching change has a different impact on a team playing style.
Last year the Packers failed to lift the team but Aaron Rodgers put in a good performance as he threw for 4,442 yards, 25 touchdowns, and two interceptions.
Rodgers is one of the players to watch for in their meeting with the Bears. The question is how LaFleur will run the Packers ‘offense is his method will match Rodgers’ game.
Last season they had a tough time getting to the defense a problem they needed to fix, but whatever it was Rodgers was still on the team so you couldn’t be sure what was going to happen.
They need to keep Khalil Mack out of the backfield, otherwise, it will be a tough game for the Packers.
The Chicago Bears are a team that has a strong defense that makes them Super Bowl contenders. The Bears are first in the scoring defense section, averaging 17.7 points per game. Chicago was 1-1 against the Packers last season, should have won two games but collapsed in the first game of the season. The Bears are the king of their home field when they are standing 7-1 at home, and it is expected that it will be difficult for other teams to beat them at home this season.
DE Khalil Mack averaged 12.5 sacks in his 14 contests, making him the best defensive player in the game. Safety Eddie Jackson and Kyle Fuller both served as pillars of defense for the Bears who recorded a combined 13 interceptions last year.
