Before facing the Lions again in Week 17, the Packers will face the Chicago Bears on Christmas Day, a team that many people continue to underestimate (and I will admit that I am one of them).
The Bears are a team with one of the worst offensive lines in football, a turnover-pron quarterback, and a receiving corps with little to no weapons.
Sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? Not necessarily, as Chicago sits at 5-3 and could even overtake the Lions for second place in the division with a win in their Week 10 matchup.
One of the Bears' biggest offensive weapons is tremendous running back Matt Forte, though the Packers limited him greatly in their first meeting. The Bears also have a tremendous defense led by Brian Urlacher and Julius Peppers, and a dynamic return weapon in Devin Hester.
The Bears certainly have talent and shouldn't be overlooked, and while I would pick the Packers to win in Lambeau on Christmas Day, I still feel that it will be another close game, with the Bears playing them like they always do—tough.
Chances of Beating the Packers: Good
