Quick Take: Clash for NFC North supremacy and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: Well, Jay Cutler wished the Packers' defensive backs "good luck," so that's something. Perhaps an impressive reunion with receiver Brandon Marshall gave the Bears quarterback some new-found guts, because needling a reeling Green Bay secondary might not go over well. In mocking the Packers' defenders, Cutler showed he has supreme confidence in his team. A win here would make it easy to believe they are the class of the NFC North. It all changes that fast.

What to watch: Watch to see if Cutler puts his money where his mouth is. Does he go right after that secondary? Bet on it. Aside from that, the Bears are one of the league's more well-rounded offenses, meaning they have two backs who can run it, but also have the ability to decorate the sky. The Packers didn't show they can stop the run at all against San Francisco. How much time does Chicago spend trying to jam the ball down Green Bay's throat before opening it up? And if the Bears do sit back and throw it, can they protect Cutler?
