The Chicago Bears are not looking good going into their game against the Green Bay Packers.

It is sad to say but the Chicago Bears are an awful football franchise. This is a storied team that has many legendary names attached to it but in the year 2020, they are a joke. The problem is that they aren’t just a joke as of recently, they have been a joke for a very long time. Things have been very bad for a while and it doesn’t appear to be getting better any time soon. Their recent play against their biggest rival paints a bigger picture.

The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers form one of the greatest rivalries in the world of sports. There is Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees, Montreal Canadiens vs Boston Bruins, Duke vs North Carolina, and Chicago vs Green Bay in the NFL amongst a few other great rivalries. Lately, however, the Packers just own the Bears and it doesn’t ever feel like a rivalry on the field.

How can it be a rivalry if one side basically has no chance most of the time? You probably wonder how it can be said that one side has no chance because any given Sunday can see any team win. Well, the Bears have just proven they are bad against the Packers historically. This upcoming game tomorrow night will not fare well for them according to the record books.

Since coming into the NFL with the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers has been one of the greatest quarterbacks who ever lived. He has been especially impactful against the Chicago Bears where he has a career record of 19-5. It is incredible how one quarterback within the division could have that much dominance over an opponent. The Bears are also 3-17 in their last 20 games against Green Bay. It is awful.

So, does anyone still subscribe to the “any given Sunday” mentality anymore? It doesn’t seem like they should because the Packers are so heavily favored in this game. The remarkable thing is that if the Bears win they will be only one game back of Green Bay in the division with a chance to go to the playoffs. This comes with very good defense and an awful offense.

Expect to see Mitchell Trubisky under center for Chicago against Green Bay on Sunday night. Coming off a bye week in the Matt Nagy era has not been easy for the Bears but this is their one final chance to impress people with this team as currently constructed. If they snap their losing streak they will reinsert themselves in the playoff conversation. Whether that is a good or a bad thing is up for debate at a later time. Nobody wants to see the Bears lose to Green Bay no matter what.
