The Packers play the Bears Sunday at Noon. Maybe in another time and place this would be a great game to watch – two young quarterbacks leading run-first offenses on slippery Soldier Field. But, as a spoiled Packers fan, it’s hard to get excited to watch what could potentially be another below average performance leading to a loss. Can the Packers win on Sunday? It sure doesn’t feel like it. But here’s three things that could give them a chance. Yes, I’m saying there’s a chance.
FORCE THE BEARS TO PUNT
At least once. That’s it.
What a week for Marty B and the Packers. But seriously, enough about that. We signed this great free agent tight end during last off-season. Lance Kendricks. And you know that Richard Rodgers has been catching plenty of balls thrown by Hundley during practice this season. It’s time for this tight end tandem to step up, get open underneath and be Hundley’s best friend. Our dreams of an effective two tight end set may be over, but Kendricks can still be a solid contributor as a pass catching tight end.
DAVANTE GETS HIS REVENGE
…through the air. Someone, ANYONE, needs to step up on offense. Who better than Davante – he has to be one of the best offensive weapons the Packers have right now. The Bears went low on Davante. The Packers can go high – on the scoreboard. Davante and the Rest of the pack can truly go Cool Runnings on the bit – you dead mon?! Rise from the dead, boys.
I said there’s a chance. A lot has to go right for the Packers to win and that has proved to be the most difficult of tasks over the past few weeks. But I’ll pick them to win anyways because that’s what I do. They’ll need to go back to running the ball, something they inexplicably abandoned on Monday night. It won’t be easy against a very good Bears defense, but it’s their best hope.
Green Bay – 18
Chicago – 17
