The Packers begin the post-Aaron Rodgers era with Jordan Love taking over at quarterback. Love showed promise in the preseason, but faces a tough opening test on the road in what should be one of the more entertaining QB duels of Week 1. Second-year wideouts Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs must step up, while the defense led by Jaire Alexander needs to set the tone.
The Bears are hoping for a Year 2 leap from QB Justin Fields as the cornerstone of their rebuild. Fields’ athleticism brings another dimension to Chicago’s run-heavy attack, while WR DJ Moore and TE Cole Kmet are going to play a positive role in his passing numbers.
