Reason Why Packers Will Beat Bears: Packers’ Pass Protection
One reason Jordan Love was able to show off his skills in the preseason was due to the Packers’ amazing pass protection. The offensive line gave him plenty of time to go through his progression and find the open receiver.
Now, they’ll get a boost with the return of David Bakhtiari, one of the best left tackles in the NFL. Bakhtiari will join Elgton Jenkins on the left side to form one of the most formidable left sides in all of football. That will help boost Josh Myers, the team’s weak link at center, while Jon Runyan Jr and Zach Tom also support him on the right side.
To further create an advantage for Green Bay. Chicago was second-to-last in sack percentage in 2022. They added a couple of pieces to improve that, but the Packers have a clear advantage in pass protection and will be able to dominate the line of scrimmage in this game.
