The NFL season has started and hasn't stopped. We had a game last Wednesday, Sunday, Monday & now we've got another tonight.
There's a fine balance here, because we all love watching football games, but part of what makes the sport great is that ts once a week. There can be too much of a good thing.
That said, tonight is one the premier matchups of the early season. The Chicago Bears, coming off a big opening week win and brimming with confidence, visit division rival Green Bay, who came into the season as Super Bowl favorites but lost in week one at home to the 49ers. So the Packers find themselves in somewhat of a desperate situation. 2 losses at home to teams with playoff aspirations in the NFC seriously puts them behind the 8-ball for the season.
So join us tonight. We'll have a game thread up and we'll be taking a look at 2 major potential NFC rivals. Also, be sure to get your Pick 6 in as the game closes for the week tonight.
