With the big win on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, this Thursday Night’s game got even more interesting. Had the Chicago Bears lost to the Steelers, we’d still have the rivalry to get fired up for, but with the win, we have a little more hope. If the Steelers would have shellacked the Bears like most of us thought, the narrative for this game would have been much different.
The Bears are still an underdog to the Green Bay Packers, but they showed last week that the underdog has some bite.
Aaron Rodgers has thrown an interception in all three games this year, so maybe the Bears’ defense can make it four in a row and register their first.
