Green Bay’s main man loves facing the Bears, though he’ll be hoping for better from a Packers defense that’s noticeably struggling with injuries. The Green and Gold had things all but sewn up against the Bengals but allowed them to even things up.
And then, of course, there was Mason Crosby’s day from hell. Even some Cinci fans would have breathed a sigh of relief when the veteran eventually got one right to seal the game in overtime, having missed three field goals and a touchdown conversion.
Justin Fields threw the first touchdown pass of his career in the Bears’ 20-9 win over the Raiders, but it was an equally big day for the Chicago defense, which restricted Derek Carr to just 206 yards in the air.
Now can they deliver against Rodgers? Follow our guide for how to watch the Packers vs Bears online and get an NFL live stream wherever you are in the world right now.

How to watch Packers vs Bears from outside your country
If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from abroad, then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.
A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.
