Packers Take On The Bears At Lambeau Field | Ticket King Green Bay

Bears at Packers Well it is time for the oldest rivalry in the NFL to be renewed, the Packers and the Bears. The first meeting this season turned into a laugher in the second half as the Packers intercepted Jay Cutler twice on their way to a 38-17 victory. Maybe Cutler won’t fold in the second half this time around. Here are our thoughts heading into the Packers game.

Can Eddie Lacy actually find some consistency running the ball? According to the advanced numbers, Lacy had his best game as a Packer in New Orleans. Too bad they lost. But much of that was done in the passing game and on one big play. He needs to find more consistency in the running game, and this bad Bears defense is just the team to do it against.

Aaron needs to get back on track- Aaron Rodgers was in the midst of a historic run before that debacle or whatever it was in New Orleans. He can’t have bad games like that. He just can’t. The Packers are built on him being lethally precise every game.

Who will play right guard? Starter T.J. Lang suffered a serious leg injury in New Orleans and is unlikely to play against
the Bears. That means that either Lane Taylor, who didn’t look to great, or J.C. Tretter, will start in his place. Tretter was going to be the center this season, but a major injury towards the end of training camp put him on the shelf the first half of the season. Corey Linsley, the rookie from Ohio State has stepped in for him, and has probably been the NFL’s rookie of the year outside of Sammy Watkins. Tretter does have the size and strength the Packers line for their guards, but he has not really practiced at the position before.

Will a Green Bay tight end step up to the task? The Packers have been doing a tight end by committee this season with Richard Rodgers, Brandon Bostick, and Andrew Quarless. This bunch needs to do a little bit more than what they are doing, Nelson, Cobb, and now Adams can’t do it all in the passing game.

Can the defense get back on track? Up until the debacle in New Orleans, in the Packers defense was actually playing well, having given up just 81 points in their last 23 quarters of play. In their defense, we know, bad pun, the Packers defense was missing their two best defensive backs in that game in Morgan Burnett and NFL defensive player of the year candidate Sam Shields. Both of those two should be ready to go this week, and that will help a lot. Final Verdict: The Packers should take care of business in this game. Final score, Packers 41-20.
