Packers vs Bears Prediction & Picks for NFL Week 13

Sweatpants Jesus

The Green Bay Packers travel to Chicago to take on the Bears in a NFC North rivalry showdown.

The Green Bay Packers are at a bit of a cross roads, as they have a decision to make with future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers was forced out of the Packers last game against the Eagles on Sunday Night Football with a Rib injury.

It is expected that Rodgers will play this week against the Bears as long as there are no setbacks, so that is worth monitoring this week.

For the Bears, they have their franchise QB feeling less than 100% as well and his status is also up in the air.

Justin Fields missed last weeks game, nursing a shoulder injury in his non-throwing shoulder.

Fields has practiced this week, albeit limited and his status is also worth monitoring as the week goes on.

This rivalry is rich with history so this game will always have its drama.

Even though both of these teams are pretty much out of the playoff picture and are well below .500, this game means more than just a win or a loss.

It’s about bragging rights.

In one of the richest rivalries in the NFL, who will come out on top and gives their season a tiny bit more hope?

Prediction

As of this writing, I am assuming that Aaron Rodgers and Justin Fields are playing. So I will make my pick accordingly.

Come back later this week to check back in to see if that is indeed the case.

If Fields and Rodgers suit up here, give me the Bears at home with the points.

Fields has been playing awesome football for the Bears over the past 6 weeks and he is a nightmare to prepare for.

We all saw what the Eagles did on the ground against the Packers, especially Jalen Hurts. He had over 100 yards on the ground…in the first half.

If Fields is healthy and can scramble the same way Hurts did, look out.

I love the Bears to give the Packers problems all day long and possibly win outright.

Best Bet

Bears +5.5 (-112)
