The Chicago Bears are one of the few teams in the league who match-up well against Green Bay. This is evident by the fact that neither team has won by more than 14 points in the last five head-to-head contests. The Packers have gotten the better of the Bears winning four of five, but the Bears have closed the talent gap.
The Bears defense is known for playing it safe, rarely taking risks with blitzes because of their confidence in the defensive line. The Packers offense plays well into the Bears scheme as they like to have long and efficient drives, which is something the Bears want because they believe they can force you into a mistake.
On offense, the Bears new group of wide receivers figures to cause problems for a Packers secondary that features both starting corner backs at six feet or shorter. The Bears top two receivers, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, are both taller than 6'3" and are big-bodied receivers.
Matt Forte always causes match-up problems with is ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, forcing a linebacker to play him in coverage. This gives Jay Cutler more passing lanes, and if necessary, room to run.
If the Bears can exploit the areas where they are strong against the Packers they could win both games in the series for the first time in since 2007.
It may also bring the NFC North championship back to Chicago.
