For the 11th time in the last 12 seasons, the two teams will play their matchup at Lambeau in prime time, with the 2022 meeting coming on Sunday Night Football. That’s great news for fans of the team around the country, who will have no trouble getting the came on local television or streaming devices.
The Packers and Bears come in on opposite ends of the emotional spectrum. Chicago won a surprising upset at home over the 49ers in Week 1, helped at least in part by very sloppy field conditions amid a heavy rainstorm. A few hours later, the Packers put up a fairly dismal performance in Minnesota, dropping to 0-1 on the season and in the division with a 23-7 loss.
Those fortunes could well flip tonight, and Packers fans will hope that they do in the team’s home opener. A victory over Chicago would go a long way to righting the ship for this Packers team that, as always, holds Super Bowl aspirations. Fans have similar hopes for this team and will surely hope that the rebound from week one’s unpleasantness begins tonight.
