Bears Vs. Packers: Thursday Night Football Open Thread

New, comments

Thursday Night Football is back in our lives and will run through Week 13 this season. We had Wednesday football last week, so mid-week football has already been back. But even still, it's Thursday Night Football on NFL Network. Life continues to improve!

Tonight's matchup should be a fun one between one past 49ers opponent and one future 49ers opponent. I don't think the Packers HAVE to win tonight, but they better win tonight. An 0-2 start would put them in an early hole with a home division loss, and that's just no good for them. We'll see how they bounce back on a short week.

The Bears on the other hand are looking to take an early grip on the NFC North. I'm already enjoying the Jay Cutler-Brandon Marshall connection, and I suspect we will see a whole lot of it this season. If the offense can get some consistency, I think this Bears team is a tough out. We could be looking at a fun matchup in Week 11 when the 49ers host the Bears. Of course, one or both of these teams' seasons could get detailed before then, but, fingers crossed!
