(NFL) Chicago vs. Green Bay, 09/18/2022 8:20 PM, Score: 10 - 27
Point Spread: -10.00 | 100.00 Green Bay (Home)
Result: Win
This is a 10* NFC NORTH GOY on the Packers.

The old saying, to not "overreact" to Week 1's results could not be more apt in this particular matchup here in Week 2.

Divisional matchups are always the most important, and they almost ALWAYS mean the most to the home side.

Going 0-2 in the division to start the season, including losing at home to their most hated rival would clearly be an absolute disaster for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

But would anyone fault the Bears for having a small letdown here after their 19-10 outright home win over the 49ers as 6.5 point dogs last weekend?

I was just saying to my main group of guys in The Insiders Room Discord, that I don't think we can get a proper "read" whatsoever yet on either San Francisco or Chicago after that Week 1 "rain game."

Last year Rodgers torched the Bears here at home by a score of 45-30.

Rodgers is awesome when coming off a loss, and the Packers' defense looked good, even in defeat last week. It'll be even better here at home in trying to send a message on the National Stage. Justin Jefferson won't be playing either.

Both teams are dealing with injuries.

But the bottom line here is that I expect Rodgers to dominate this game and take it over from start to finish.

Expect that to result in a massive lop-sided destruction for the home side.

Lay the points, the play is the PACKERS.

Good luck, NP
