The Packers will look to rebound from a rough loss as they welcome the Bears to Lambeau Field in tonight’s Week 7 game. The Bears blew a big fourth quarter lead and were edged 17-16 by the Jaguars last Sunday, and the Packers struggled in a 30-16 home loss to the Cowboys. The Packers’ injured list consists of running backs Eddie Lacy (ankle) and James Starks (knee), cornerbacks Damarious Randall (groin) and Quinten Rollins (groin), tight end Jared Cook (ankle), safety Chris Banjo (hamstring) and receiver Jared Abbrederis (quadriceps).
5 Key matchups tonight:
Aaron Rodgers vs Chicago’s secondary
Clay Matthews vs Brian Hoyer (Chicago’s QB job may be Hoyer’s to lose as Cutler recovers from thumb injury)
Ty Montgomery vs Danny Trevathan
David Bakhtiari vs Willie Young
Mike Daniels vs Jordan Howard
“It’s football,” Aaron Rodgers said. “There’s going to be stretches where you’re playing really great and stretches where you’re just a little bit off, and we’ve just been a little bit off I think collectively. I’m confident. We’re five games into it. We’re going to get it fixed pretty soon.”
Let’s let it be tonight, Aaron!
