Green Bay Packers (-3.5) over Chicago Bears
At first glance, making Chicago a home underdog at Soldier Field for the first Bears-Packers Championship game in sixty years is insulting to the Bears. Chicago has home field, it’s the oldest rivalry in the league and the Bears didn’t roll over to have their bellies tickled at Lambeau in the final week of the season.
But then you look at what the Packers are bringing to the party and you realise you can’t back against them. Aaron Rodgers had a performance for the ages against the Falcons and gosh darn it, he was pretty good against the Eagles too. Rodgers can turn broken plays into punishing gains with his mobility like Michael Vick, and he has the passing accuracy and cannon arm to throw the ball into a milk bottle at the far end of the field like Peyton Manning if he has to.
Jay Cutler mightn’t be the Chicago media’s favorite guy but he’s been outstanding for the Bears in the Mike Martz offense. It’s also worth noting that Cutler didn’t do any whining when the line couldn’t protect him at the start of the season and he was getting battered every week. That stands to a man.
But despite Cutler’s improvement, it’s still easier to trust Rodgers when the heat comes on to protect the football than it is to trust Cutler, and the Packers will bring heat. It’s what they do. Green Bay -3.5 at Chicago with Sports Interaction is the pick for the NFC Championship Game.
