I'm Matt Williamson with yard barker here to talk about the Bears going to play their heated rival Green Bay Packers.
It's seven and three.
Green Bay is a two game lead over the Bears and NFC North, and Chicago's lost four games in a row.
They're coming off their bye week and hopefully have done a lot of self scouting over that time to address their awful offense.
It's hard to watch.
Just one offense averages more points per drive than Green Bay.
Just one offense averages less than Chicago 100 points per drive basis.
The Jets are the only offense that averages fewer yards per play than Chicago.
No offense throws the ball at a higher rate than the Bears, though, Despite really not being good at it, the quarterback is obviously part of the problem.
But the Bears offensive line has been horrid.
And, frankly, this coaching staff isn't using their offensive personnel to its fullest.
They needed it back to more heavier sets with double tight ends, um, the Bears running game averages of 3.
6 yards per carry.
That's the worst in football, and needless to say, they're not breaking off long runs at all.
Chicago's offense is also horrible on third downs.
Green Bay's defense have been quite poor, generating turnovers, but their offense also hasn't given the ball away.
No offense has a better time of possession numbers in Green Bay this year, and only two offenses average more yards per play than Green Bay.
Aaron Rodgers has been incredibly good passing near the goal line and money situations, but overall he looks like the Rogers of old and one of the absolute best quarterbacks in the league.
I've been also remarkably consistent this year, really only having one bad game.
As has Davante Adams, who now has really emerged as the best wide receiver in all the football.
Um, only the Colts and Steelers allow fewer sacks per gained in the Green Bay, but Chicago is an excellent pass rushing defense and, frankly, they're gonna need to win that battle to keep up in this game.
Their defense is gonna have to carry them with big plays.
Sax disrupting Rogers is asking a lot, though.
Um, Chicago does have a big special teams advantage in this matchup, so if it is a close game, maybe that favors them or they're a big play happens in that regard.
Cordarrelle Patterson comes to mind.
Still, the Packers are averaging over 11 more points scored per game than Chicago.
And while I respect this Bears defense and they are coming off a bye, it'll be too tough to keep Rodgers down for 60 minutes.
They'll get it figured out and they'll be on the field a lot more.
I got Green Bay 28 Chicago 17.
I am Matt Williamson with yard work.
