NFL Game of the Week: Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers Preview and Prediction

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistSeptember 10, 2012

The second week of the NFL season prevents a much stiffer test for the Chicago Bears, who exploited a young and inexperience Indianapolis Colts team in Week 1.

The test comes via NFC North rival Green Bay, which was bested by the San Francisco 49ers at home in their season opener.

The two teams have the oldest rivalry in the NFL, and last year the Packers swept the bears despite Lovie Smith typically presenting a very difficult out for Mike McCarthy and his teams.

The Bears will look to improve their record to 2-0 via their stalwart defense, although the Bears offense looked potent against the Colts. For the Green Bay Packers, it's all about the Aaron Rodgers and his stable of weapons.

So, which team's strength will win out? The Packers offense or the Bears defense? Watch Bleacher Report's preview and be sure to comment below.
