After a road win in Week 5, the Chicago Bears host their tormentors, the Green Bay Packers. Here are five players who need to step up in order to get another upset win.
The Chicago Bears are flying high after turning things around. In the first three weeks of the season, they had embarrassing outings. If it wasn’t the offense failing, it was the defense.
In the last two weeks, however, they suddenly found some answers. They found ways to do come away with victories. Yes, one of them was against the Detroit Lions. However, they went on the road last week to face a very good Las Vegas Raiders team and left with an impressive upset win.
The Bears will face an even stiffer test this week. They come back home to face the hated Green Bay Packers. The Packers are led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He’s completely dominated Chicago, owning a 20-5 record and throwing 55 touchdowns to just 10 interceptions.
Chicago Bears: 5 players that must step up to beat the Packers
Rodgers has found all sorts of ways to beat the Bears. Usually, he just blows them out. However, if he has to gut it out he will. Who can forget his amazing second-half comeback in Week 1 of the 2018 season he engineered despite playing with an injury?
The Bears hope they have a quarterback who can match up with Rodgers. They drafted Justin Fields to be the face of their franchise. He’ll get his first chance to beat a bitter rival. Hopefully, if he wins, it’ll be the first of many.
Fields isn’t afraid of the challenge. He’s already said he was built for the spotlight. If he beats the reigning MVP, he’ll have a brighter spotlight on him.
