Bears look to rebound

18 September 2018 04:11:18 GMTPlus11

The Chicago Bears got off to a great start last week as they took a 17-0 half time lead against the Packers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.

Unfortunately for the Bears Aaron Rodgers led a comeback for the ages as the Packers rallied for a 24-23 triumph in the season opener.

As disappointing as that was for Chicago, the arrival of Khalil Mack in a trade from the Oakland Raiders has the fan base buzzing as the Bears look to build another Monsters of the Midway defence.

Monday Chicago goes in search of its first win of the season when they host the Seattle Mariners at Soldier Field.

One of the two teams will join the Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Houston Texans, New York Giants, Detroit Lions and the Arizona Cardinals with an 0-2 mark, unless there is a tie. Seattle arrives in town after losing to the Denver Broncos in the opening week.

Back in Green Bay the Packers played their second consecutive home game when they entertained the Minnesota Vikings.

Minnesota rallied for 22 points in the fourth quarter to force overtime, but neither side could break the deadlock in the extra 15 minutes as the game ended 29-29.

Meanwhile the Detroit Lions slumped to 0-2 on the campaign with a loss to the San Francisco 49ers and it doesn't figure to get much better this week when the Lions welcome in the New England Patriots to Ford Field.

Green Bay travels to Washington to take on the Redskins, the Vikings host the Buffalo Bills while the Bears are in Arizona to match up with the Cardinals.

The Chicago Bears are 3.50 to win NFC North, with the Vikings 2.30 and Green Bay currently 3.60.
