2. Get Rodgers reacclimated to the regular season

It’s been a long time since Aaron Rodgers has seen the field. Even if you count his return against Carolina Panthers, Rodgers has barely been in any regular season game over the last 10 or 11 months.

It won’t take long for Rodgers to get used to the atmosphere and speed again, but there still might be a slight adjustment. He did throw three interceptions against Carolina and there are sure to be some looming suspicions about how his collarbone and body will hold up.

The Bears defense is another issue. They are legit and only got better with the additions of Roquan Smith and Khalil Mack. Chicago is sure to put pressure on Rodgers and make him uncomfortable in the pocket. We’ll see how Rodgers and the whole offense reacts with their MVP back under center.
