Bears vs Packers Expert Picks & Predictions for Week 2 NFL Sunday Night Football Game
The 2022 NFL season is finally here and the Week 2 schedule is loaded with exciting showdowns. One of the most anticipated matchups of the week is the Sunday Night Football clash between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers.
The Bears were clear-cut underdogs in Week 1 but still managed to find a way to get a 19-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers (the weather helped). The Packers weren't as fortunate against their NFC North rivals, though, dropping their opening contest, 23-7, to the Minnesota Vikings.
Nevertheless, the Packers have won 17 of their last 20 games against the Bears. Will Green Bay continue its dominance this weekend? Or can Chicago pull off the unlikely upset?
Here's what projection models and experts across the industry have to say about the Bears vs Packers Week 2 matchup.
