Slice it this way. Those two loses have come at Soldier Field. In the one win he does have in Chicago, he threw for just 180 yards and no touchdowns. Ryan Grant's 137 yards on 20 carries and 2 touchdowns led to that one win. Rodgers doesn't have Grant to fall back on coming into Soldier Field this weekend.
All this doesn't mean **** in the playoffs.
The Packers lost a close one at Atlanta during the season, and Saturday I was expecting a close game with a similar score. If you had come up to me even at the beginning of the game and said Green Bay would win by 27, I would've called you a raving lunatic. The Pack are on a roll right now. The offense is firing on all cylinders, the defensive effort is outstanding, and above all, Rodgers has been lights out.
That said, we will have our hands full on Sunday. We can't afford to make mistakes like the Jennings fumble or kickoff return in the first half of the Atlanta game. And we sure as hell can't commit penalties like the ones that cost us the game at Chicago in Week 3.
Looking forward to what has the makings to be a classic game, and ready to see who wins. Go Pack Go!
I'm going Bear/Steelers. I think the Jets put way too much into the NE game and will fall this weekend. The Bears/Packers is going to be a great game, and the only reason I'll go with the Bears is because the game is in Chicago.
As a Bears fan, Id be a hell of a lot more worried about the Packers had they scored more than 10 points, at home, in a game they HAD to win in Week 17 against Chicago. I'm fully confident that the Bears defense knows how to keep the Packers under control.
Does not mean I'm not worried about the game, but being it in Chicago, I give the Bears the edge...
