Breer: Week 2 predictions

Can the high-flying Falcons and tough-as-nails Niners win in Week 2? Albert Breer thinks so. See who else he likes. **More ...**

Greg Jennings is officially inactive and James Jones will start in his place. If any team can handle Jennings' absence, it's the Packers. Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Donald Driver  and Jones are better than most top-four wideout groups in the NFL. Tight end Jermichael Finley has also produced big numbers against the Bears.

Running back James Starks is also out, as expected.

As for the Bears, their biggest question mark, cornerback Charles Tillman, is was in the starting lineup.

Other Packers who won't suit up against the Bears are wide receiver Jarrett Boykin, safety Sean Richardson, cornerback Davon House, linebacker Terrell Manning and defensive end C.J. Wilson.
