Week 14: Chicago Bears

At the time of writing, it has been 1,072 days since the Packers last lost to the Chicago Bears. Matt LaFleur was offensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans. Green Bay is 5-0 against its oldest rivals under LaFleur. At Lambeau Field, the Packers will have a great opportunity to continue that impressive run.

It’s uncertain who will be the starting QB for the Bears two weeks from now. Justin Fields left the Bears’ Week 11 game with an injury, so it’s possible Andy Dalton will get the start at Lambeau.

Chicago hasn’t done a whole lot right on either side of the ball this season. Its offense ranks No. 31 in the league in total yards and No. 29 in points per game. Matt Nagy’s team is averaging just 16.3 points per contest. They will likely need significantly more than that to win at Lambeau, especially considering their defense is giving up 24 points per game, ranking No. 21.

The reigning NFC North champions are a long way ahead of the Bears. Unless the injury bug continues to hit Green Bay, they should be comfortable winners at home. The Packers continue their dominance against their oldest rivals with yet another convincing victory, moving to 10-3 on the season.

Prediction: Green Bay 31, Chicago 14 (10-3)
