Chicago Bears (3-9) vs Green Bay Packers (4-8)
Sunday, December 4th @ Noon (CST)
Green Bay Packers lead series 104-95-6
JAYLON JOHNSON vs CHRISTIAN WATSON
Watson is starting to come to life after being mostly invisible to start his first season. He has an astounding 12 catches for 265 yards the last three games with six TDs. However, prior to that he had only 10 catches for 88 yards in six games. Meanwhile, Jaylon Johnson is having another great year in Chicago, only have given up one TD this year after allowing five in each of his first two seasons, while also getting to be a better tackler, with only 6.9% missed tackles in 2022. It is his career-best percentage and the oblique injury he had a few weeks ago now is a distant memory. Can Watson stay hot or will Johnson do cool the rookie back down?
COLE KMET vs ADRIAN AMOS
The former Chicago Bear, Adrian Amos has been outstanding with the rival Packers, but is easily having his worst season as a pro in 2022. Allowing a shocking 132.2 passer rating against when targeted with three scores and a 77 completion percentage allowed in coverage. Kmet has been having a bit of a breakout season of late. He leads the Bears in receiving touchdowns and averaging 11.6 yards per catch, a career best. With Darnell Mooney set to miss the rest of the season, look for the Bears to try to get their big bodied tight end working down the field early and often, there by exploiting this matchup as often as possible.
TEVEN JENKINS vs KENNY CLARK
Clark has always been a huge problem to the Bears in past seasons but he is going through a bad season and it started early. He didn't exactly shine in the first Bears-Packers game in Week 2. There's no other way to describe it. His numbers appear decent on the surface with three sacks and six QB hits. The two-time Pro Bowler, however, is ranked 90th against the run out of 107 interior defensive players graded by Pro Football Focus. It's part of the reason the Packers are 31st against the run and a defensive tackle can't be so porous. Clark had only an assist and a quarterback hit in the first Bears-Packers game. Jenkins has been the third-best run blocker at guard in the NFL, according to PFF. He is the fourth-best guard overall. His refusal to let up until the echo of the whistle leads to some incredibly devastating pancake blocks. Does Clark get back on track in Chicago or does Jenkins further solidify his spot?
