This Sunday will be the winter weather divisional rival type of game that Lambeau Field that Packers fan wait all season for.
With three games left in the regular season, the Packers lead the NFC North with a 10-3 record. They are coming off a 20-15 win against the Washington Redskins. In their last home game of the regular season, the Packers face the 7-6 Bears, who are on a high after taking down the Cowboys at home by a 31-24 score. Current odds for this week’s game has the Packers as 4.5-point favorites, as reported by SBD.
Running the show for the Packers continues to be Aaron Rodgers, who has thrown for 3260 yards and 23 touchdowns, with only two interceptions. Top target Davante Adams leads the team in receptions (56) and yards (685), despite missing four games. Running back Jamaal Williams leads in touchdown receptions with five and five different players have at least 30 receptions.
While Rodgers beats opponents through the air, he seems to be in a bit of a slump lately. Meanwhile, Aaron Jones has been a menace on the ground and in the air, scoring 12 touchdowns with 779 yards rushing. Jamaal Williams adds another dimension in the backfield and has totaled 401 yards on the ground.
Defensively, the Packers have registered 32 sacks, 21.5 of which have come from Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith. They have allowed 20.8 points per game with 13 interceptions and eleven forced fumbles. Kicker Mason Crosby, who has been dealing with a family tragedy, has been nearly automatic, hitting 16-of-17 attempts.
For the Bears, Mitchell Trubisky has improved his play of late. He has thrown for 2440 yards, 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions for the season. Top receiving threat Allen Robinson has hauled in 76 passes for 898 yards and seven touchdowns. Tarik Cohen has added 60 catches but for only 5.5 per reception.
On the ground the Bears rely on David Montgomery, who has grinded out 680 yards and five touchdowns. As a unit, the Bears are averaging just 84.8 yards per game rushing.
The Bears have the edge over the Packers defensively, allowing only 17.8 points per game. Khalil Mack has 7.5 of the team’s 30 sacks. Kicker Eddy Piniero is 16-of-21 for the season, but just 4-of-8 from 40 yards on out.
The Packers will close out the season on the road against the Vikings and Lions. The Bears finish with a home contest against the Chiefs and on the road against the Vikings.
We are ranked 20th in sacks. Where last season we were ranked 8th. Which is a bit of a head scratcher.
In the next 3 games, the Packers defense needs 4 sacks a game, to equal their total of 44 last season.
On the upside….we have 6 more interceptions, and 4 more FF’s with 3 games to go.

That said, AB is in some class quite beyond idiot.

It feels like the Packers should be 3-10 after the last few games. The offense is in the bottom third of the league, the defense is average at best and dropping.
I think the Packers will lose to the Bears and Vikings. The Bears offense isn’t that much worse, if at all, and the Packers defense is much worse. Vikings is an away game. That means no bye and possibly an away game first round against a team which can pretty easily beat them. Heck, the Lions game, an away game, may determine whether the Packers even go to the playoffs.
So, there was a play from the Redskins game, that Rodgers probably saw this week, and is pissed about. He actually executed the play the right way probably, it was a three tight end, one running back formation, with Davante Adams split wide right, Jimmy G and Sternberger lined on up tight on the right, and Marcedes Lewis lined up tight on the left. The Redskins lined up with a single high safety. Lewis stayed in to pass protect on a play action fake to Jones, Graham ran an in route across the field, Adams ran a deep hook angled toward the center of the field, and Sternberger ran a sideline wheel route. The ball was thrown to Graham for a nice gain on the play, but Sternberger was wide open down the sideline as he had burnt the linebacker in coverage. Probably would have been a touchdown, as the safety was biting hard on Adams route and was not going to be in any position to make a play on Sternberger.
Point of this is, if the bears show a similar look defensively, do not be surprised if the Packers go back to this, especially since both Bears starting ILBs are out for the season, and the backups arent particularly good in pass coverage
I like how in this article the paragraphs on the Packers are long and the ones on the Bears are real short. It reminds me of the old Hannity and Colmes show and how Hannity would get 2 words for every 1 by Colmes and Hannity could dress sharp and Colmes would sometimes wear a silly looking bow tie. Then Colmes would talk all weak and throw out softball responses to set up Hannity like “Do you really feel that way, Sean? Tell us more about how you feel. Go ahead, use my time.”
Then Fox would claim the propaganda was “fair and balanced”…. Still does. It is funny how people line up to be brainwashed, to be told what they’d like to believe was true but secretly know is not, and then buy what is advertised on Fox all while Fox literally gets rich via propaganda.
A dictator was watching Fox news one time and said he could never get away with this in his country on his state run television because it was too obvious and his people were too smart for it. I think it was Kim Jong-un.
You write like a fucking second-grader.
Please stop. It hurts my eyes and brain trying to find the hidden cogent thought in your puzzle-like ramblings.
