Recent Packers defenses have been terrible. Tommy DeVito and Bryce Young freely moved the ball against Green Bay. Everything screams Bears. Can't do it.
Professionally, Fields has struggled against the Packers' zone-heavy defense. Fields has completed 63.9 percent of his passes in five games versus Green Bay, throwing for 938 yards, four touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
Fields has 267 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns. Fields is completing 67.9% of his throws against zone coverage this season with five touchdowns, five interceptions, and an 86.8 passer rating.
Jordan Love, however, has been great lately. The Packers' rookie quarterback has thrown 16 touchdowns and one interception in his previous seven games with a 109.9 quarterback rating.
I won't choose Fields and the Bears until they beat the Packers. It will be a dirty game, but Lambeau ghosts are tough. My final season forecast is all story. No football analysis.
Currently, the Bears are on fire. They are determined to eliminate the Packers from the playoffs and avenge their Week 1 humiliation in Green Bay.Bears: 33, Packers: 27
The Packers won't be shocked by the Bears' additional effort on Sunday. That Week 18 triumph against the Lions last season may have taught them something. Last year, Detroit eliminated them from the playoffs. The Packers won't repeat it.
The Bears made measurable progress in their reconstruction this year, and their franchise seems to be stable. This season will finish with a sad setback to their arch rivals. That unpleasant sensation will boost offseason growth. You must leave some devils for exorcism next year.
