This is the short version, but I had to get my pick in before this newfangled week 2 early kickoff….
Chicago Bears (1-0) at Green Bay Packers (0-1): The Pack took a solid loss to start the season up, but still stunning because #1) it was at Lambeau, and #2) it was the Packers. They turnaround with not much better of a break, catching their oldest rival in the Bears, who now feature a high powered offense (never, ever, once, ever been said in history about them) with plenty off new toys. It’s going to be rough, and it may take the full four quarters to squab out, but the Pack pull even at home and a fired up, yet constantly cool, Aaron Rodgers looks masterful in the process. The Packers defend their house.
