The Green Bay Packers will take part in their first divisional battle of the season this Sunday as they travel to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears. If the majority of the people who are considered 'experts' when making their NFL picks are right, the Week 3 match-up looks like it will end up in favor of the visiting team.
First up, while perusing the Week 3 picks handed in by SB Nation's own Andrew Sharp, the Packers were the favorite. Not so much because their talent is head and shoulders above that of the Bears, but simply because it seems that Sharp isn't the biggest believer in Bears' quarterback Jay Cutler. He probably isn't the only one.
The World Wide Leader's NFL experts picked unanimously on 10 games for the upcoming week, but surprisingly, the undefeated Packers were not one of those 10 teams. Both Ron Jaworski and Seth Wickersham decided that Chicago would take advantage of their home field, er, advantage.
The Packers weren't unanimous winners at CBS Sports, either, despite their panel having just five experts submitting weekly picks. The lone naysayer was Pete Prisco, by the way, in case any angry Packers fans were wondering where to direct their hate mail.
