Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers -9.5

The Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers matchup will take place on Sunday Night Football in Week 2. The Bears are on a roll following a surprising 19-10 win against the San Francisco 49ers. In contrast, the Packers were recently throttled by the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 23-7.

The Packers' last game against the Vikings put Aaron Rodgers in a difficult situation. As everyone had guessed, the QB was missing his star wide receiver, Devante Adams and that caused him problems. The Bears had a different outcome, as they enjoyed a relatively straightforward victory against the 49ers. Although the weather turned bad in their last game, the Bears won by nine points behind the strength of their defense.

Although the Bears had a good start to the season, the Packers are a 9.5-point favorite in this game. You can place your wager at DraftKings Sportsbook and turn a $5 bet into $200 instantly, whether your bet wins or loses.

Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers

Chicago Bears

Opening the season with a victory, the Bears joined the Minnesota Vikings with a 1-0 record in the NFC North after Week 1. As the underdog against the Niners last Sunday, they held San Francisco to just 10 points and limited new Niners quarterback Trey Lance throughout. Though flood conditions and a slippery field impacted the game, the Bears managed to get 15 first downs and 204 yards of offense.

The Bears' star quarterback Justin Fields is better than the fans thought. He contributed two TDs and 121 yards in the game against the Niners. Running back Khalil Herbert led the ground game with 45 yards, while wide receiver Dante Pettis had 51 yards. The victory marks Matt Eberflus' first win as the new head coach of Chicago in the 2022 season.

Green Bay Packers

While the team had a disappointing result against the Vikings, they will try to turn things around against the Bears on Sunday Night Football. Against Minnesota's defense, the Packers managed to get one touchdown, and Aaron Rodgers was held to just 195 passing yards.

The season opener was a disaster for the Packers, as Aaron Rodgers seemed frustrated during the game due to his new-look receiving corps. Perhaps this team was still working on how to sync the passing game without OTs Elgton Jenkins and David Bakhtiari on the line due to injuries, and without Davante Adams on the roster any longer. With Rodgers failing to connect on a single pass in the endzone, the team's only score was on the ground from AJ Dillon.

The Packers' defense looked ridiculous in their loss to the Vikings. They could not cover Justin Jefferson as the Vikings' wide receiver had nine catches for over 180 yards.
