Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are heading into their Week 15 matchup against the Chicago Bears looking to make a statement. After winning the first matchup between the two teams earlier this season in Week 1, the Packers know that they can’t afford to play as they did at the beginning of the year this week.
Coming into this week with a 10-3 record, the Packers are looking to improve their chances of taking home the NFC North division title. They have a one-game lead on the Minnesota Vikings, who they play next week. Chicago, on the other hand, has a 7-6 record and are trying to keep their playoff hopes alive.
It will be a fun rivalry game at Lambeau Field, and the Packers need Rodgers to step up.
All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at a few bold predictions for Rodgers this week.
3. Zero Turnovers
First up, the Bears are going to do everything they can to put pressure on Rodgers and force turnovers. They feed off of their defensive performance, and Rodgers cannot afford to turn the football over. He has only thrown two interceptions all season long, and that won’t change this week.
Rodgers isn’t going to throw an interception or lose a fumble. He may get hit a few times, but the Chicago defense won’t make the huge plays that they need. This will be one of the top keys to coming out with a win for Green Bay.
2. Aaron Rodgers Will Throw For 275 Yards, Three Touchdowns
While Rodgers isn’t going to have a monstrous performance, he is going to have a quality stat line. When everything is said and done, Rodgers will have thrown for 275 yards and three touchdowns.
Add in that Rodgers won’t turn the football over, and the Packers are going to be in a great place. Green Bay knows they have to win this football game, and Rodgers will do his part. Matt LaFleur will come in with a great game plan, and it will help the superstar quarterback succeed.
1. He Will Lead The Packers On A Game-Winning Drive
Finally, the Packers are going to see their franchise quarterback win the football game for them. Chicago is going to make this a tight contest, and they will be in the game late in the fourth quarter. Green Bay will need a big drive to win from Rodgers, and he will provide them with just that.
Lambeau Field is going to be rocking this week for the rivalry matchup. Big things are on the line for both teams, and Rodgers will help the Packers get the job done.
