Bears Vs. Packers: Thursday Night Football Open Thread

It's the beginning of Thursday night football, a bit early this year. Thursday Night Football now starts in Week 2 of the regular season and will feature the Chicago Bears taking on Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field for an NFC North prime time matchup.

It's always a classic matchup between the two teams, but this early in the season it will have the Packers surprisingly trying to stave off 0-2 to begin the 2012 year. The Packers lost to the San Francisco 49ers on opening weekend, while the Bears offense showed a bit of flash with the addition of Jay Cutler's old favorite target in Brandon Marshall, rekindling some of what they had back in their days as members of the Denver Broncos.

So, who do you think wins this matchup? I picked the Bears in our Week 2 Expert Picks.
