Packers going to have dig even deeper to beat Bears

Packers going to have dig even deeper to beat Bears

Green Bay is always tough at home, though the Cincinnati Bengals gave them all they could handle last weekend. The all-time series is tied with a record of 93-93-6 and the Packers have scored exactly 16 more points than the Bears in all of that time, outscoring the Bears 3,300-3,284.

Most of the Packers players stood with arms linked during the national anthem last week. Through three weeks, the Packers have only allowed an average of 183 passing yards per game, the seventh-best figure in the NFL.

The latest installment of the NFL's oldest rivalry is a meeting between teams trying to make it to the long weekend off that follows a Thursday game without anyone else getting hurt.

BURFICT EXEMPTION: LB Vontaze Burfict completed his latest three-game suspension from the National Football League for another egregious hit and is expected to start in Cleveland on Sunday. The image you will see on September 28th will be one of unity. But Dom Capers has a knack for taking away a team's strength, or at least the Bears' strength.

Jason Wilde covers the Green Bay Packers for the Lee Newspapers Wisconsin group. For the Bears, it was to pull off a big upset; for the Packers, it was to avoid a big upset. But he still threw for 313 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers 27-24 victory at Lambeau Field.

The Chicago Bears earned their first win of the season with a thrilling 23-17 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week Three. While the Packers lost that memorable Thanksgiving night game to the Bears at Lambeau Field in 2015, Rodgers' numbers have been outstanding: 98/153 (64.1 completion percentage), 969 yards, seven touchdowns, one interception and a rating of 94.4. Rodgers has been stellar once again this season, and is looking to avenge the team's loss in the NFC Championship Game last season.

Chicago's defense looks to be legitimate. Chicago rushed for 125 yards against Atlanta, but 46 of that came on one play, and the Bears came up short.

As good as Rodgers is, he'll have trouble beating the Bears by himself.

Preferred starting tackles David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Bryan Bulaga (ankle) both were listed as doubtful on the final injury report Wednesday. Kyle Murphy went on injured reserve this week, joining two other backup tackles knocked out by injuries.

Rodgers was sacked six times against Cincinnati behind a banged up offensive line.

Green Bay has mentioned that they would like to take some pressure off of Montgomery and limit his snaps more than they have so far this season.

Green Bay's defense was scary with a healthy Mike Daniels, but he's been limited all week with a bum hip.
