It's now safe to say that the Chicago Bears are back in their never ending cycle of mediocre quarterback play. It's hard to believe this team was 5-1 at one point this season. Since then they have lost four in a row and are averaging 15.75 points per game in those losses. Two touchdowns and a two-point conversion aren't going to cut it if they want to keep up with this elite Packers offense.
The quarterback situation is in flux again because Nick Foles went down on Monday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings, injuring his hip. Mitch Trubisky will make the start in his place and now we're back to square one with the Bears. Trubisky was benched for Foles in Week 3 against the Falcons and the Bears made a phenomenal comeback when they were down 26-10 late in the fourth quarter. Foles led this team to several wins after but has lost some of that mojo he had when he was coming off the bench, something that has very much become a theme in his career.
At least the Bears don't have a quarterback conundrum like the Denver Broncos who will be playing the New Orleans Saints Sunday without any quarterback. (Not sure if that's ever happened in the history of the league to be honest with you.) All the Broncos quarterbacks were in close contact with backup QB Jeff Driskel who has tested positive for COVID-19, therefore making all four quarterbacks ineligible to play.
Maybe the Bears aren't in that bad of a situation, but they aren't from it. It doesn't seem like Trubisky will be in Chicago next year unless he wins out the rest of the season decisively in Foles place. They may have to keep Foles until they can draft a better option because they owe the NFL veteran so much money of what the Jaguars were supposed to be paying him. When Trubisky went out in Week 3 he wasn't completing even 60 percent of his passes. He's going to have do much better in this one and frankly from here on out to be a starter in this league. Who could be the QB of the future in Chicago?

The Packers are going through adversity of their own after last week's overtime loss to the Colts. Marquez Valdes-Scantling fumbled the ball in overtime, giving Indianapolis a chip shot field goal to win the game. Valdes-Scantling received death threats after the game and quarterback Aaron Rodgers quickly came to his defense. There's no room for anything like that in this game.
All considering, the Packers shouldn't have trouble in this one. Key word is shouldn't. They lost to the Vikings in a game they were favored more than this bout with the Bears. They barely beat the one-win Jaguars a couple of weeks ago. They looked amazing in the first half scoring 28 against the Colts in the first half. They only scored three in the second half and had four turnovers in the game. If they played consistently, they wouldn't be in overtime in the first place. Reversing those inconsistencies will be the goal on Sunday Night Football against the division rival Bears.
