The Bears and Packers meet for an NFC North showdown on Thursday Night Football.
The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers will square off in Lambeau Field for a Week 2 showdown that is sure to have plenty of fireworks. The Bears are coming off a dominating victory over the Colts, while the Packers fell at home to the 49ers.
For Chicago, they would like to do nothing more than make a statement early in the year against the reigning division champions. As for Green Bay, the very last thing they want is to fall into an early 0-2 hole to begin the season.
Given that this is an NFC North battle, you can bet the coaching staffs will be pulling out all of the stops early and often. Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler both impressed in their opening games, although neither got off to a great start. If either quarterback fails to come up big tonight, it's tough to imagine their respective team winning.
Kickoff from Lambeau Field is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET on Thursday, Sept. 13. NFL Network will televise the game live.
