Chicago Bears offense will need to step up to defeat Green Bay

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

In their close losses to the Packers of late, the Bears' offense has been limited. They'll need to change that in order to get the win on Sunday.

The Chicago Bears are clinging to their playoff spot as they host the Green Bay Packers in Week 15 on Sunday, who have a chance to clinch the NFC North division with a win. If the Bears are going to win, writes John Mullin of CSNChicago.com on Friday, they're simply going to need to score more points than they have against Green Bay in the recent past.

Mullin notes that six of these two team's previous nine meetings have been decided by a touchdown or less. Additionally, since quarterback Jay Cutler arrived in Chicago, he has struggled against the Bears' biggest rivals; Mullin mentions that the Bears have only scored more than 20 points once in the eight contests since Cutler was brought on to lead Chicago's offense.

In this season's Week 2 meeting, a 23-10 Green Bay victory, Cutler was intercepted four times, completing 11-of-27 passes for 126 yards, and also adding a touchdown toss. His quarterback rating that Thursday night was 28.2, as he was also sacked seven times.
