GREEN BAY AT CHICAGO
TV: 5:15 p.m. PDT Thursday, Channel 4
Line: Bears by 3
Over/under: 46 1/2
Sam Farmer’s pick: The Packers are going to be better this season, but they seldom play well at Chicago. Chuck Pagano will have the Bears blitzing more than former defensive coordinator Vic Fangio — now head coach of the Denver Broncos — so Aaron Rodgers might catch them once or twice. Bears 27, Packers 23
