With fringed temperatures expected, the Green Bay Packers will attempt to extend their winning streak to four games as they face the Chicago Bears today in the Windy City. Green Bay beat Chicago 26-10 at Lambeau Field on Oct. 20 and, with another win against their rivals, the Packers will even the all-time series at 94-94-6.
The Packers should beat the Bears once again, due to their defense’s outstanding play of late and having MVP candidate Aaron Rodgers under center. But the Packers need to establish the running game, especially with Rodgers not 100 percent due to a calf injury.
Although the Bears are 3-10 this season, they have a run-oriented offense, which should help their chances against the league’s hottest team.
Expect a close game, mainly due to the weather and Rodgers’ injury, but the Packers will continue their winning ways.
Prediction: Packers 24, Bears 13
