Another matchup of the longest standing rivalry in the NFL.

Bears are favored by 3.

I think this is a low scoring affair with "Money" Mason Crosby winning the game as time expires.

Pack - 20
Bears - 17

Not a big fan of the "well, actually" guy, but since you opened the door:

The rivalry began in 1921 and is the league's most played, with 198 regular-season and post-season games.[1] The rivalry is not the league's longest continuous rivalry, as the 1982 strike-shortened NFL season did not include a Bears–Packers game. That title goes to the rivalry between the Packers and the Detroit Lions, who have played each other at least twice a year since 1932.

I have zero expectations for the Packers this year.

Would be nice to be surprised positively by this organization for a change.

I am pretty sure the Detroit Lions didn't exist until 1934. Maybe if you count the team they were prior to moving to Detroit it goes back to 1932?

They weren't the Lions in 1933.  

Move to Detroit and early success (1934–1938)[edit]

In 1934, George A. Richards, a radio executive who owned WJR, purchased the Portsmouth Spartans for $8,000 and moved the team to Detroit, renaming them the Detroit Lions.[1]

haha. Not a problem RK. 

DB - I don't think your stance is a poor one. However, I'm fully back and the nightmares of the past two seasons are gone. It's Week 1 baby!

All the talk (rightfully so) about the new MLF offense, I'm almost more interested in seeing the new pieces of defense. Feels like the first time in recent memory we have "dudes" on the defense that can wreck an offensive game plan.

I too am intrigued by the defense.
This could be the difference.

MONEY Mason Crosby???? Said no one ever. This will be a low scoring affair but the Bears pull it out 24 20

I mean he has hit some clutch FGs in his career.

I just feel as if this organization waited too long to stop the rot that was happening under McCarthy and as such has a long way to go in changing the mediocre culture that now surrounds the franchise.

We'll see.

He made a lot of kicks yes, but he also missed a ton too in high pressure situations. He was one of the NFL's elite a few years ago but not any more. I trust his leg in long field goal situations but calling him money is not something i would give him. If he was money Green Bay wouldnt have brought another kicker into camp to push for Crosby's job. Just saying.

With both offenses in Pre-Season mode, the defenses (and JK Scott's leg) took center stage. A quick-strike, 4-play, 74-yard drive in the second quarter that culminated with a Jimmy Graham 8-yard TD catch would end up being all the Packers would need in a 10-3 victory.

The Packers new look defense looked outstanding, stifling the Bears run game and holding them to 254 yards overall. Packers were physical and aggressive and registered five sacks and a key INT by former Bear Adrian Amos in the end zone with 2:00 to play.

A nice start all things considered. Offense has a ways to go, but hopefully this is the beginning of the change from a soft defense to a hard-edged one.

Play Aaron Rodgers "We've got a defense" on loop for the next week!

What a performance. I know it's one game (against Mitch Trubisky), but this team will be dangerous if we can rely on our defense for stops late in games like we had last night.
