Bears vs Packers Preview

The Chicago Bears (1-0) look to improve to 2-0 while the Green Bay Packers (0-1) look to avoid an 0-2 start when the longtime rivals collide on “Sunday Night Football” at Lambeau Field.

Chicago beat the San Francisco 49ers 19-10 in a soggy game at Soldier Field last week while the Packers fell 23-7 to Minnesota at U.S. Bank Stadium last Sunday. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers couldn’t connect with a rookie wide receiver Christian Watson on a deep throw and nothing improved from there.

“I’ve got to play the same way,” Rodgers said via ESPN’s Rob Demovsky. “I don’t play the way I played in 2011, [but] I’ve got to play on time and guys gotta get open, so no, I’m not gonna change the way I play. I have to realize who’s out there, who we’re throwing to and how we’re gonna actually make some hay and score some points.”

Rodgers and the Packers finished with an uncharacteristic day and loss to the Vikings as the 4-time MVP struggled with young receivers. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur doesn’t see reason to hit the  panic button yet.

“I think he’s done as good a job as we could possibly expect,” LaFleur said via ESPN. “He’s always hard on himself and I know there were a couple plays that he certainly would like to have back, just like there’s some play calls that I would like to have back as well. That happens every game, right? But I think he’s done a great job of demanding the urgency from those young guys, yet putting an arm around them as well at the same time.”

Rodgers gets a little extra help going into the home opener against the Bears as veteran wide receiver Allen Lazard returns from injury. Lazard posted 40 receptions, 513 yards, and eight touchdowns last season.

Second-year Bears quarterback Justin Fields looks to lead his team to victory against another playoff team from last season. Fields threw for 121 yards and two touchdowns versus and interception.

“He was able to move all those things aside,” Bears head coach coach Matt Eberflus said via ChicagoBears.com. “figuring it out how he was going to grip the ball better, how he was going to operate and then figure out the game as the game went on and move the ball down the field.”

“That’s what, to me, is outstanding,” Eberflus added. “What an outstanding thing for a young quarterback to have that mental toughness; all of those things going on and to be able to laser-like focus in and get the job done. To me, that was very impressive.”

Fields understands the magnitude of the Bears-Packers rivalry.

“It means a lot,” Fields said via USA Today’s Bears Wire. “I want to win every game I play. But it’s the tradition of this rivalry. Means a lot to us as a team, to the fan base, to the people upstairs. It just means a lot to everyone in this building.”
