The Chicago Bears have lost nine straight home games to the Packers White Cody Whitehair Jerseys , including the playoffs, since 2010.Go back even further and they have won just two of their last 12 meetings at Soldier Field against the Packers in the last ten years.That’s brutal, however, the last time the Bears made the playoffs, back in 2010, was when they last defeated their no. 1 rival.Once again the Bears can beat the Packers, clinch the division and eliminate Green Bay from the playoffs with a win.Seems easy, but games never are against Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers.Green Bay PackersSB Nation site: Acme Packing CompanyGame day/time/TV: Sunday, noon CT, FOXRecord: 5-7-1Last week: 34-20 win over the Falcons at LambeauBears all-time record against: 94-97-6Historical match ups: Monday, Sept. 27, 2010. Soldier Field, Chicago, Ill.The Bears host the Packers on Monday Night Football. The starting line up for the Bears includes Julius Peppers, Brian Urlacher, Charles Tillman and Anthony Adams on defense and Olin Kreutz, Earl Bennett, Devin Hester and Johnny Knox on offense.Jay Cutler threw a touchdown to Greg Olsen, while Aaron Rodgers threw one to Greg Jennings. Rodgers rushed for another while Hester returned a punt for Chicago’s second touchdown.Two Robbie Gould field goals, including a 19-yarder as time expired was the difference as the Bears won 20-17.The Bears have lost every game at Soldier Field to the Packers since.Last meeting: A gut-wrenching 24-23 loss in week one. The Packers, led by a one-legged Rodgers following his earlier exit from a knee injury to lead Green Bay to a 21-3 run and ultimately a victory.Offense: Aaron Rodgers.I could leave it at that and it would suffice Cody Whitehair Jerseys 2019 , right? He’s their best weapon and their most effective offensive threat and he’s been the Bears slayer for the last decade plus.The Packers rank 11th in offense and 15th in points.Their passing attack is 10th and rushing is 19th.Rodgers (62% cmp./3,700 yds./23 TD/1 INT) is having another great season in the midst of all of the Packers organizational shake ups. Last week he set an NFL record for most passes without an interception, one that he brings into this game. Catching his passes are Davante Adams (92 rec./1,196 yds./12 TD), TE Jimmy Graham (46/549/2), Randall Cobb (34/326/2) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (29/451/2). Their rushing attack is led by Aaron Jones (129 att./720 yds./8 TD) and Jamaal Williams (86/310/1). Jones has brought a legitimate rushing threat back to the Packers after years of subpar and so-so RBs. He has ability as a receiver too, adding 26 catches, 206 yards and a TD.Defense: The Packers defense comes into the game ranked 16th in yards allowed and 17th in points allowed. Mike Pettine’s unit is eighth in passing yards allowed, but 24th against the rush.The Packers are tied with the Bears for fifth in the league with 40 sacks, although they are 24th with just 14 takeaways.They’re led by LB Kyler Fackrell (8 sacks/10 TFL/10 QB hits), NT Kenny Clark (6 sacks/9 QB hits/1 FF) and LB Blake Martinez (4 sacks/118 TKL/9 TFL/5 QB hits/2 PD) up front. In the secondary are CBs Jaire Alexander (11 PD/1 INT/2 FR) and Josh Jackson (8 PD) and Bashaud Breeland (2 INT/3 PD/1 FR).Tramon Williams is also still an effective playmaker, even at age 35. He has 47 TKL, one FR and one PD.Interestingly, their leader in interceptions hasn’t played for them in over a month, Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix (traded to Washington).Injury report: The Packers listed nine players on their Wednesday injury report.Full participation: QB Aaron Rodgers (knee), WR Equanimeous St. Brown (elbow)Limited: WR Randall Cobb (knee), LB Clay Matthews (ankle), G Lane Taylor (foot)Did not participate: CB Brashaud Breeland (groin/not injury related), T Bryan Bulaga (knee), DL Kenny Clark (elbow), TE Jimmy Graham (knee/thumb)Key match ups: A lot is going to come down to lessons from that week one game. How can Vic Fangio change his calls if the Packers use that quick passing game to neutralize their pass rush?It’s going to be about Kyle Fuller and Prince Amukamara locking down Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.However White Leonard Floyd Jerseys , one of the big keys will be how Sherrick McManis fares in his first start in place of Bryce Callahan, lining up against Green Bay’s no. 3 in either St. Brown or Valdes-Scantling. Khalil Mack going against Bulaga (if he plays) is obviously another match up to watch. Green Bay’s OL is beat up and the pass rush could have its way, but we also saw what happened in week one.On offense it will come down to Mitch Trubisky making good decisions and avoiding turnovers. The Packers have been starting two rookie corners in Alexander and Jackson, so there should be shots to be taken, but the Packers pass rush has been very good at getting pressure.If the Bears can pick up their run game where it left off last Sunday, they can control the pace of the game and keep Rodgers off the field.What to watch for: Possible playoff clinching win, exorcising demons over the team’s biggest rival and nemesis, avenging that horrible week one loss. Other than that, I guess there isn’t much to watch for...Key stats: The Packers have not won a road game this season.Green Bay has the third fewest turnovers in the leagueOpponents have a 95.9 rating against the Packers, throwing 22 TDs to 7 INTsRodgers has thrown three touchdown passes only twice this year, against the Bears in week one and in week five against the LionsNo team has more interceptions against Rodgers than the Bears, who have nine. However, he also has the most touchdown passes against the Bears with 45The last time Rodgers started and lost against the Bears was Thanksgiving 2015Pick: It’s never an easy game against the Packers. As much as I want to believe the Bears will just crush the Packers and cruise to an easy win and division title, something tells me that Rodgers is going to find a way to keep it close or at least make us fans sweat down the stretch.That said, I’m picking Bears 23, Packers 17. To see my analysis of the betting lines click here to see my article on Sports Bet Collective. I’m 8-4 picking Bears games this year.Arrival of the Mack: a case for earning the league’s 2018 MVP award We’ve all likely played Mack Morrison’s song “Return of the Mack” countless times since September 1st of 2018. For anyone who was hiding under a mountain, or waking up from a night out on the town, that was the date when Bears general manager Ryan Pace pulled the trigger on securing the NFL’s top edge defender. Expectations skyrocketed for this young Bears team, and people instantly questioned just how much one player, who’s not listed as a QB, is worth. Four weeks into the 2018 regular season Leonard Floyd Jerseys 2019 , Khalil Mack has been worth every single penny and draft pick spent in the completed series of transactions. Here’s the full stat-line for this Monster of the Midway: Khalil Mack’s Stats-LineStatsTotalsStatsTotalsIn comparison to other defenses around the league, Mack alone has matched, and even exceeded, totals for several teams. His total amount of sacks (5) matched the 4-week totals for both the Oakland Raiders — Jon Gruden is likely doing the walk of shame right now — and the New York Giants. The one interception he has is greater than the total for the Dallas Cowboys, and matched the totals for the New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Jacksonville Jaguars. The scariest stat has to be his forced fumbles/strip sacks totals. There are only 9 teams in the entire league who have forced more fumbles as a team than Khalil Mack has by himself. Those teams are: Cleveland Browns (6); Arizona Cardinals (5); Buffalo Bills (7); Cincinnati Bengals (5);Pittsburgh Steelers (6); Houston Texans (6); New York Jets (6); Tennessee Titans (5); and New Orleans Saints (5). Otherwise, his total either matched or exceeded the team totals of the remaining 21 teams. Needless to say, Mack has been a force of nature on this elite defense for the Chicago Bears. Let’s examine some of his best plays for the Bears thus far this season. First, let’s make a note of how Mack attacked the ball in his first official sack with the Bears. This has been a theme throughout his first four games, and a big reason why he’s the first player since Robert Mathis — helmet tip to Tonkaman for that bit — to record a strip sack in four consecutive games. That’s also a possible reason why he hasn’t been flagged for roughing the passer; can’t flag him if the ball is already stripped and on the ground. This was just a savvy play made with pure effort. Once he sniffed out the screen and noticed Roy Robertson-Harris was free, he slipped back and intercepted the ball. His high football IQ has always been on display since coming into the league as the 5th overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft. Again, he sees ball, he attacks ball. It helps to have such a high motor as he fought off a chip and a block from two separate players. Once he saw Russell Wilson slow-cocking his arm to throw the ball, Mack swatted the ball out. Mack will not be denied here on his third sack of the season. Something else that he does exceptionally well, is he gets skinny when facing multiple blockers. In this case, he first set the tackle up to over-exaggerate their kick-step, then got skinny as he merged inside, and bull-rushed the left guard. He’s fought and won against triple teams on several occasions. Another high effort play by Mack on sack #4 on the year White Eddie Jackson Jerseys , and his 3rd strip sack. And, again, he’s not looking for the kill shot. He eyeballed the pigskin and attacked Bradford’s arm. His energy and experience paid off as he ended the Cardinals’ chances of scoring on that drive. Asking any offensive lineman in the league to block Mack one-on-one is simply daring the league’s most dangerous rusher to make a play. And Dirk Koetter’s Bucs paid the price. First with this sack of Ryan Fitzpatrick. Koetter took an even bigger gamble with leaving Khalil Mack free to rush the passer, as he hoped the play-action off the trap would slow him down. Mack wasn’t having any of that nonsense. He swam over the pulling guard and disrupted Jameis Winston’s pass, turning a potential bomb into a wounded duck. And you’ve got to love Mack’s drive to go downfield while looking for shirts to block on Danny Trevathan’s interception return. Oh, and on an unrelated note, that was a nice pancake served to Winston by Roquan Smith. Defensive Coordinator Vic Fangio, who’s coached up a top-ten unit in Chicago even before Mack’s arrival, has been creative in how he’s deployed his multi-role weapon. Specifically, he’s lined Mack up both as a defensive end, and as an outside linebacker. You will see Mack being asked to drop on occasion, while pass coverages and stunts are being blended from play to play. Thanks to all the success that Khalil Mack and company have had up-front, Fangio has been able to utilize his full playbook. Thanks to all the havoc that Mack has caused by himself, other defenders have taken advantage of their respective opportunities to make plays. Out of the 18 sacks amassed by Chicago, Mack owns 5 of them. For the remaining 13 sacks, 9 different players have contributed. If this isn’t a season that one considers worthy of MVP consideration, then the MVP award shouldn’t even exist. Lawrence Taylor was the last defender to win MVP, which dates all the way back in 1986. Mack is on pace to recording 20 sacks, 16 forced fumbles, and 12 additional quarterback hits. It’s time to end that streak. And it’s time to be excited for the Chicago Bears again.
