Week 4 of the 2017 NFL season officially kicks off tonight. By the end of Monday, we’ll already be about a quarter way through the new year. Crazy.
Tonight’s game features a classic NFC North matchup: the Chicago Bears versus the Green Bay Packers. The Bears are 1-2 while the Packers are 2-1. The all-time record in this 97-year-old rivalry is 94-94-6, so tonight’s winner will get to be one the winning side of this series.
The Bears have played a little better than expected. They kept things close with the Falcons in Week 1 and then beat the Steelers in Week 3.
The Packers, meanwhile, beat a bad (?) Seahawks team by one possession, lost to the Falcons, and then narrowly defeated the winless Bengals in overtime.
In other words, we might have a game on our hands tonight. Of course, I say that now and it’ll end up being a blowout.
The Eagles will play the Bears in Philadelphia later this season in Week 12.
