The Bears are nothing like the Packers' Week 1 opponent. High spirits, momentum. Can they continue that energy to Lambeau Field, where the Bears haven't won since 2015? The Under Center Podcast members think:
The Bears finally get to avenge one of the worst opening season miss-managed beatdowns I've ever seen as a Bears fan against the Green Bay Packers. A season opening has never made me more anxious for the season.
The Packers and Jordan Love have found an offensive, scoring 30 points per game in their previous six games and 27.3 points overall, going 4-2. Pass catchers Jayden Reed, Christian Watson, Luke Musgrave, and Dontayvion Wicks may return to the Packers.
However, the Bears' defense and secondary are improving as the season winds down. Fields may play his farewell game against the dreaded Packers with his teammates. No matter his Bears future, he wants to send a statement.
I honestly thought Matt Eburflus could never have turned this ship around after the first half of the season. But he did. After investing heavily on defensive draft equity, the Packers have failed to see a consistent return.
Let's end the season strong and prevent the Packers from reaching the playoffs as the Lions did last year. Bears: 33, Packers: 27
Sunday's game might be pivotal for Matt Eberflus Bears. After losing nine straight to the Packers, the Bears are hot and might knock them out of the playoffs on Sunday. Eberflus, Getsy, and Fields can make a strong final statement before Halas Hall has critical summer discussions.
All indicators lead to Eberflus returning, while Getsy and Fields are less certain. Fields' strong play over the previous month has complicated the Bears' QB situation, and a win over the Packers would make things worse.
