Packers vs Bears NFL Thursday Night Football Betting

Green Bay Packers look to rebound from Week One loss

Defending NFC North Champion Green Bay Packers ran into a buzz saw of a defense as they lost their home opener 30-22 to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The Niners defense was amazing as they dictated the game from the get go and the Packers found themselves down 23-7 after three quarters.

That made Green Bay very one dimensional on offense as they ran just nine rushing plays with RB Cedric Benson that netted a paltry 18 yards. QB Aaron Rodgers was a surprisingly mediocre 30 of 44 for 303 yards, with two TD and one INT. We expect a much better overall effort from the Packers in this contest.

Chicago Bears open NFL 2012 with a rout of the Indianapolis Colts

After giving up a pick six to the Colts on their second possession to go down 7-0 the Bears manned up on both sides of the ball to crush new look Indy by a 41-21 final count. On offense, QB Jay Cutler  and company busted out for 428 total yards and five touchdowns. Cutler had 333 pass yards 2 TD 1 INT for the Bears.

RB Matt Forte posted 120 total yards with one TD, while WR Brandon Marshall caught nine passes for 119 yards and one TD. The Bears rattled Colts rookie QB Andrew Luck sacking him three times and came up with three INT. The Packers are not the Colts so we’ll see how good the Bears really are in this one.
