NFL Week 4 starts Thursday with a rivalry matchup between the Bear and the Packers. A great way to start the week and an intriguing matchup with the Bears coming off a strong win against the Steelers in week 3. Other interesting matchups are the Lions at the Vikings, Giants at Buccaneers, and the Raiders vs the Broncos. These early divisional games are important to come out on top of for teams and are important for the long term success of potential playoff teams like the Raiders. The Giants are looking to avoid an 0-4 start and fight in the always competitive NFC East. The Vikings and Lions have an interesting matchup both coming off impressive outings, the Lions lost to the still undefeated Falcons with a controversial touchdown reversed to end the game and the Vikings soundly defeating the Bucs behind backup quarterback Case Keenum.
My game to watch this week is the Thursday Night opener between the Bears and Packers. The Bears have looked very strong in the running game and have been playing well against tough opponents like the Bucs and Falcons. The Packers once again look strong with Aaron Rodgers under center and an impressive receiver duo being Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams. Though it is unwise to bet against Aaron Rodgers, don’t be surprised if the Bears steal a win away. Still, I think Aaron Rodgers and and the Pack will take the win this week at
Lambeau in this primetime contest.
