Predicting the Packers’ final six games of 2020.
We’re nearing the home stretch of the 2020 regular season. The Green Bay Packers have set the foundations for another NFC North title win and playoff berth, they now need to close it out, finish strong and earn the highest possible seed.
Six games stand in the Packers’ way before the end of the regular season, four of which will be played at Lambeau Field. Three are division games.
It’s time to move on from Sunday’s disappointing overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts as it’s officially Bears week.
Week 12: Chicago Bears
Even with five more games to go after Sunday, the Packers could effectively put the NFC North away this weekend when they host the Chicago Bears.
Losers of four straight and uncertain who will even be their starting quarterback this week, the Bears need to hope their bye week came at the right time to turn things around.
Chicago’s offense is among the worst in the NFL no matter who is throwing passes. Only the winless New York Jets are averaging fewer offensive yards per game than the Bears, and they are averaging 19.1 points per game, also second-fewest behind the Jets.
For a Packers defense that struggles to stop the run, matching up with the league’s worst rushing offense will certainly help.
The Packers get a huge win and take another giant step towards the postseason.
Prediction: Packers 27, Bears 14 (8-3)
