In the previous 28 meetings, Rodgers has won 23 games against the Bears.
However, can the new look of the Bears’ defense finally stop Rodgers?
Or will he continue to own the Bears franchise, something he’s been vocal about towards Bears fans?
Rodgers Has Third Best Winning Percentage Against One Team, The Chicago Bears
Here are the facts: the four-time MVP QB has the third-best winning percentage by any NFL QB when facing one team at least 25 times.
That one team is the Bears, a team who he has a .821 winning percentage against during his career.
However, the streak can’t continue forever.
Currently, Rodgers is on a six-game winning streak against the Bears.
More Bears-Packers notes: Aaron Rodgers has won 6 straight starts vs. Chicago, tied for the 5th longest streak by a starting QB vs. the Bears since 1950. In those 6 games, Rodgers 16 TDs, no interceptions.

His numbers during that span are impressive.
But when the Bears defense steps up, they can hold off Rodgers and the Packers.
It’s that defense the Bears need to give them a chance on Sunday night in Green Bay.
Bears Defense Needs To Prevent Rodgers From Running Away With Game Early
Rodgers has a history of destroying the Bears defense early in games.

However, this Bears defense is looking solid after their week one victory.
While the Bears held the San Francisco 49ers and Trey Lance to 164 yards, this is Aaron Rodgers.
The Bears defense needs to play this game with passion, as that can fuel them to a victory.
But they also can’t wait until late in the game to shut down Rodgers and his offense.
It’s the first two quarters where the Packers QB can really hurt the Bears.
Containing him and that offense early can give Justin Fields and the offense time to create a lead.
But the Bears defense also needs to study the film of the Packers game against Minnesota from last week.
Watching Vikings Defensive Play From Last Week Can Give Bears Defense Clues To A Victory
The Minnesota Vikings defense shut down the Packers offense from making big-time plays against them last Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers takes a big shot. Fumbles. #Packers early momentum on that opening drive is over.

While the opening play was the Vikings getting lucky, as rookie Christian Watson missed a 75-yard touchdown catch, they showed pure skill afterward.
An interception by Harrison Smith, and the defense holding off big plays, helped them defeat the Packers.
However, it was the Vikings holding Rodgers to 3-for-9 on third down conversions and 0-for-2 on fourth down that made the biggest impact.
The Bears need to see how Minnesota accomplished this against the four-time MVP.
With the Packers offensive line already in shambles, the Bears defense can take advantage of this opening.
It’s something the Vikings used to help them win, as they sacked Rodgers four times.
While many doubt the Bears can defeat the Packers, it’s the group of young defensive players who can pull off the upset win.
