Why the Packers can cover 

Wide receiver Davante Adams has been a force on offense and leads the team with 80 receptions for 1,083 yards (13.5 average) and five touchdowns. He has been explosive as well with 16 plays of 20 or more yards, and Adams has also converted 53 first downs. In a Week 12 win over the Los Angeles Rams, Adams, who has been limited in practice this week with a hamstring issue, caught eight passes for 104 yards (13 average). It was his fifth 100-yard receiving game of the season while his best outing was an 11-catch, 206-yard and one touchdown game at Cincinnati on Oct. 10.

Defensively, linebacker De'Vondre Campbell has been a beast as he leads the Packers in tackles with 99, including 69 solo. He has also registered one sack for four yards and has four tackles for loss. Campbell has also been disruptive in the passing game, knocking down four passes, while picking off two. His best game this season was a 14-tackle performance against the Washington Football Team, making 11 solo stops and forcing two fumbles.

Why the Bears can cover

Chicago's defense remains formidable, and is ranked ninth in yards allowed at 327.9. Among those leading the way is linebacker Roquan Smith, who led the Bears with eight tackles and one tackle for loss last week. He was a beast in the last meeting with Green Bay, registering 12 tackles in Week 6 and will be looking for his sixth game in a row on Sunday Night Football with five or more tackles. He has 121 tackles this season, including 74 solo, the fourth consecutive season he has reached 100 or more tackles. Smith has three sacks for 25 yards, has nine tackles for loss and has one interception he returned 53 yards for a touchdown.

Also bringing the pressure to opposing quarterbacks is linebacker Robert Quinn, who had two tackles for loss last week. He has 11 sacks in 2021, the fifth time in his career he has registered 10 or more sacks. He is looking for his third road game in a row with a sack, and has 4.5 sacks in five career games on Sunday Night Football. For the season, Quinn has 39 tackles, including 32 solo and he also has forced two fumbles.
