The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers meet Sunday in week 15 NFL action at Lambeau Field.
The Chicago Bears look to stay hot after winning four of their last five games. The Chicago Bears have won three of their last five road games. Mitch Trubisky is completing 64.5 percent of his passes for 2,440 yards, 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Chase Daniel and Trubisky have combined for 19 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions. Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller have combined for 1,429 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Taylor Gabriel has 29 receptions. The Chicago Bears ground game is averaging 84.8 yards per contest, and David Montgomery leads the way with 680 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Chicago is allowing 17.8 points and 326.5 yards per game. Roquan Smith leads the Chicago Bears with 101 tackles, Khalil Mack has 7.5 sacks and Kyle Fuller has three interceptions.
The Green Bay Packers look for another win after winning seven of their last nine games. The Green Bay Packers have won their last four home games. Aaron Rodgers is completing 64.4 percent of his passes for 3,260 yards, 23 touchdowns and two interceptions. Rodgers has two or more touchdown passes in 13 of his last 23 games. Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling have combined for 1,112 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Aaron Jones has 45 receptions. The Green Bay Packers ground game is averaging 107 yards per contest, and Jones leads the way with 779 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, Green Bay is allowing 20.8 points and 367.9 yards per game. Blake Martinez leads the Green Bay Packers with 128 tackles, Preston Smith has 11.5 sacks and Kevin King has four interceptions.
The Bears are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 vs. NFC North, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NFC and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Packers are 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games in December and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. NFC North. The under is 13-5 in Bears last 18 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Packers last 5 games overall. The Bears are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 meetings.
Five of the last six meetings between the Bears and Packers have been decided by seven or less points, including the season opener, a game the Bears could have won if the offense did anything. The Bears defense has given Rodgers fits these last two years, and while the Packers are winning games, a lot of these contests have been close due to an offense that's not as crisp as it's been in the past. The Chicago Bears have also shown progress over the last month, with wins in three of their last four and a much improved Trubisky. We also can't ignore the Bears having a week and a half to prepare for this contest. I like the points here with the road team.
