Bears vs Packers Prediction

The Packers looked over matched against the Dallas Cowboys and in part that was because of injuries on defense. However, it was the offense turning the ball over that really sealed the loss for the Packers. The Bears are just a bad team. If not for the San Francisco 49ers the Bears might be the worst team in football. What will happen on Thursday Night? The Packers will look like a championship team again. Giving up this many points in a NFL game is hard but this will be a blowout. The only reason to watch this game in the fourth quarter is if you have money on it. Taking the Packers as long as I can get them at less than a ten point favorite.
