Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears
There are a few really big NFL games in Week 2 of the NFL. Several games feature familiar division rivals going head to head in a fun follow-up to Week 1. The best game of week two happens to be the oldest rivalry in the NFL: The Green Bay Packers vs the Chicago Bears. It’s the Sunday Night Primetime Extravaganza so strap yourselves in for a wild ride. The Bears were the only NFC North team to win in week one. This team won against the elite San Francisco 49ers defense despite Soldier Field looking like it went through a super-soaker storm. Quarterback Justin Fields threw for 121 yards and two touchdowns. He only threw one interception and finished with an 85.7 rating. That’s really good considering the field conditions.
However, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers dominated this rivalry as of late. Life is different without Receiver DeVante Adams though. Rodgers is trying to figure out how to get the best out of his current receiving core. Will Allen Lazard have a big game? What will Running Back Aaron Jones do?
Chances are Green Bay will find a way to win this game. The Packers dominated this rivalry as late and despite not having Adams, this team should find a way though it will be much more difficult. This game will likely showcase two outstanding defenses.
Final score prediction: Packers 20 Bears 17
New Orleans Saints vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
These two teams won against their week one opponents and are looking to keep their winning ways going. Tom Brady came back from retirement and looks like he’s not missing a step at all. Not bad for a 45-year-old quarterback! Perhaps the Buccaneers are good enough to win their second super bowl in three years. Tampa Bay has the tough task of winning against Jameis Winston and the Saints. The Saints won a close game against division opponent Atlanta Falcons 26-25. New Orleans has a golden opportunity to start out 2-0 in the division. That won’t be easy to do against the all-time GOAT of the NFL.
Buccaneers 35 Saints 24
Baltimore Ravens vs Miami Dolphins
You want to talk about two defenses that really showed up in week one? Look no further than the Baltimore Ravens and the Miami Dolphins. Who knew this would be such an exciting matchup in week one? The Ravens held the New York Jets to nine points while the Dolphins held Mac Jones and the Patriots to just seven points. Will this be another game in which the defenses shine? Baltimore’s defense has the tough task of slowing down receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle in this track meet of a game.
Ravens 24 Dolphins 17
Seattle Seahawks vs San Francisco 49ers
This list isn’t complete without talking about this NFC West rivalry. Things aren’t the same for Seattle without Quarterback Russell Wilson but they’ll manage. The San Francisco 49ers are coming off the tough 19-10 loss to the Chicago Bears. Will the 49ers make this happen or will Seattle snatch another opportunity from them? Seahawks receivers D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett look to have a big game.
