Prediction

The Packers are coming into this game with a depleted secondary and offensive backfield.

No. 1 cornerback Sam Shields is on the IR with a concussion and the team also ruled out Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins with groin injuries. While the Bears offensive line is much improved, quarterback Brian Hoyer will face some pressure. But he is going to pick apart the Packers secondary.

As will Aaron Rodgers with the Chicago defense. The Packers are clearly missing something on offense, but he’ll find Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb often. And he’ll have to because Green Bay’s running back situation is a mess.

Starter Eddie Lacy is out (ankle surgery) as is backup James Starks. The Pack did trade the Chiefs for Knile Davis, but that was on Tuesday. How well as Davis, who never lived up to expectations in Kansas City, absorbed the playbook in two days? Ty Montgomery, a wide receiver, is expected to get the majority of work in the backfield tonight. Montgomery certainly is capable of running with the ball and has RB size and Don Jackson has been promoted from the practice squad, but this is far from the situation the Packers hoped they’d be in.

The ball will move down the field, but both teams will be hard-pressed to get into the end zone as they have all season. Plenty of field goals tonight, but the Packers overcome their roster obstacles and pull out the win at home.

The Pick: Packers 23-19 (Packers win straight up; Bears cover the spread; the UNDER wins)
