1. Bears upset Packers on Sunday Night Football

Last year, Aaron Rodgers made quite a stir with something he said. No, it wasn’t when he said he was “immunized,” only to find out later that didn’t mean he was vaccinated. It also had nothing to do with his toe that he oddly displayed for the media to see.

Heck, it wasn’t even in the offseason when he was talking about a psychedelic tea that contains the hallucinogen DMT causing the best season of his career.

While those things did cause some raised eyebrows, we’re focused on his comments where he told Chicago Bears fans that he owned them. Rodgers even doubled down on this afterward, citing his record while saying it’s hard to question anything he said.

"“I don’t know if you can question a whole lot of what I said. We’ve had a good record over the years against them and won a lot of games,” Rodgers said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette."

Rodgers and the Packers lost in Week 1 to the Minnesota Vikings on the road and now head home to host the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. The expectation is that Green Bay will turn things around, which is what they did in 2021 after a Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

The problem is that this team isn’t the same as it was last year. The Packers offense doesn’t look near as dangerous without Davante Adams, who went off for the Raiders in his debut. They’ll have to lean more on the ground game as Rodgers will have to get some production from his committee of receivers.

This final prediction is that he will struggle to put up more points and the Bears will score a huge upset thanks to Justin Fields and his progression as a player.
