After a surprising upset in Week 1, the Chicago Bears take to the road to take on the hated Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Here are some things to look for in the game.

Well, Week 1 was exciting, was it not? After spending the entire offseason getting bashed, the Chicago Bears showed in their upset of the San Francisco 49ers that while this is a team that does not have elite talent up and down the roster, it is one that will try to outwork you. Other teams now know that they will be in a dogfight when they face Chicago.

The Chicago Bears pulled off one of the best upsets in NFL Week 1

The Bears started out slowly on offense but the player kept grinding. They just wore down the Niners and the offense finally came around. After going down 10-0 late in the third quarter, the Bears ran off 19 straight points to come away with a huge win, opening some eyes in the process.

Now the Bears hope to continue their momentum. They go on the road to face the hated Green Bay Packers. A few months ago this was considered an easy blowout win for the Packers. Green Bay is considered a Super Bowl contender and the Bears are starting yet another rebuild.

However, once the curtains went up and the bright lights started to shine, we saw how hard the Bears play and how they just surround the ball on defense. Also, we saw how Aaron Rodgers struggled to get on the same page as his new receivers. Davante Adams is not there anymore so Rodgers has some adjustments to make.

Sure, eventually Rodgers and his receivers will figure it out and run off a load of victories. We just hope that the run begins after the Bears leave town.

Hopefully, Chicago shows the Packers, even if they lose, that this is a new era of Chicago Bears football. For now, though, let’s take a look at some things to watch out for in this game.
