4. Green Bay will intercept Justin Fields three times
Stokes isn’t the only Packer who’s going to capitalize on a Fields’ mistake this week. Look for Green Bay’s defense to bring a lot of blitz packages at the young signal-caller. That’s going to allow their secondary to capitalize with at the last three interceptions on the day.
Fields deserves credit for not turning the ball over last week against the Raiders, but he still only completed 12 of his 20 throws for just 111 yards passing. His inability to make plays down the field with his arm was a big reason why the Chicago offense only mustered nine points last week.
Things aren’t going to get any easier for the former Ohio State standout this week. The Packers are going to crowd the line of scrimmage to make sure Fields can’t beat them with his running ability. Their secondary will also be pressing Chicago’s wide receivers to force Fields to throw the ball down the field to succeed.
Fields will hit a big throw or two against Green Bay’s secondary, but he’ll make more mistakes than big plays. Count on the Packers’ defense to get a handful of sacks and three interceptions. It’s going to be a day to forget for Chicago’s quarterback of the present and future.
