The Chicago Bears will face the Green Bay Packers in their Week 4 game as they look to improve to 3-1 as the Packers hope to avoid a 1-3 start.
The Chicago Bears are coming off a Monday night victory against the New York Jets with a 2-1 record. They will look to take advantage of a chance at sole possession of first place in the NFC North against the Green Bay Packers.
The Bears staved off a Jets rally and held on for a 27-19 victory as quarterback Jay Cutler threw for 225 yards with two touchdowns.
Running back Matt Forte was held to 33 yards by a top-ranked Jets run defense, and wide receiver Brandon Marshall was limited with an ankle injury.
He is questionable for Sunday with his ankle injury still lingering.
The Packers have started 1-2 for their third consecutive season after their offense was held to seven points by the Detroit Lions.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers had another forgettable performance with 162 yards and only one touchdown pass. Running back Eddie Lacy was held to 36 yards on 11 carries.
However, their defense showed major improvement as they held the Lions to 10 offensive points and didn’t allow quarterback Matthew Stafford to complete a touchdown pass while he threw two interceptions.
Outside linebacker Clay Matthews is expected to suit up against the Bears despite suffering a groin injury in the Packers’ loss.
The Packers will likely struggle against Forte since their run defense has been abysmal, but they have had Cutler’s number and are looking to avoid a 1-3 start.
Prediction: Packers 27, Bears 17
