For the second season in a row, the Packers home opener is going to be a primetime banger. Coming off a loss against another NFC Rival, the Minnesota Vikings, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will be plenty motivated to avoid another disappointment.
Meanwhile, the Bears are coming off a big win against the San Francisco 49ers at home on Soldier Field. They might be willing to take some risks to keep that momentum going against a division rival.
The Packers have not loss two in row under coach Matt LaFleur’s tenure and Lambeau Field is the perfect place to keep that from happening.

Lazard on the field with an Aaron Rodgers coming off a loss with something to prove could be a killer combination, especially when playing at Lambeau. Let’s hope the duo still has it this season. Hopefully, we’ll see more of the run game overall this week, but these two will shine once that gets established.
