Dennis Wierzbicki-US PRESSWIRE
The Chicago Bears are capable of beating the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, and whether the game turns into an offensive shootout or a defensive struggle, I expect the score to remain close throughout the game.
The Bears have an awesome one-two punch at the running back position, and I expect Mike Tice to exploit the same weaknesses the San Francisco 49ers did in their victory in Week 1. The Packers are subject to getting manhandled with a power running game. Michael Bush and Matt Forte will have big roles in this game, and the Bears will run the ball down the throat of the Packers.
Furthermore, the Packers aren't solidified in their secondary at this point, as the game against the 49ers clearly indicates. Brandon Marshall and the rest of the wide receivers will find themselves open on many occasions, and Jay Cutler will find them.
The one big difference between the 49ers and Bears this year is on defense. Aaron Rodgers and his receivers will have just as many opportunities to make plays as Cutler and his receivers, and I'm expecting this game to be decided late in the fourth quarter.
