Prediction: Chicago looked fairly impressive in dismantling what I still think will be an under-the-radar-good Colts team, while Green Bay’s offense looked shaky and the Packers defense looked worse. Not sure the Pack want to fall two back of the Bears this early, but they may not be able to help it. Cutler, Forte, Marshall, and that steady “D” are more than enough reasons to call the upset outright here.
Pick: Chicago 24, Green Bay 20
