Khalil Mack adjusts to life with the Chicago Bears

Khalil Mack adjusts to life with the Chicago Bears

He didn't need to - the Bears had a rare day off, and he was going to sleep in while his parents were visiting over Labor Day weekend. Packers cornerback Kevin King got his first taste of the rivalry a year ago. Oh, and they also have the league's best quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, making his 167th start in the only system he's known as a pro. Expectations are already through the roof for many victory-starved Bears fans, who have been pounding the navy blue and orange Kool-Aid since Mack came aboard. Mack, who was acquired by the Bears on September 1, will also play in his first game eight days later - at Lambeau Field.

To help us get primed for this epic Week 1 matchup, we've enlisted the help of Freddie Boston, site expert from Lombardi Ave, to preview Bears vs Packers. But the Browns are just four-point home underdogs this time around facing a Steelers squad possibly without running back Le'Veon Bell, who has yet to sign his franchise tender and may or may not play.

"Just like good corner play will make (Mack) better, good ILB play will make everybody better". Hicks obviously does. When asked about the Packers' offensive line, he said "I know those five guys can't block Khalil Mack". "Not sure how he's going to play, but I would guess they're going to try to get him out there as much as possible". He is coming off yet another impressive campaign where he had a team-high 10.5 sacks, which made him the fifth player in Raiders history to record at least 10 sacks in three different seasons.

A man in his twenties was helping police with their inquiries, he said, adding there was no danger to the public. A distraught neighbour near the scene said she often saw children playing in the front yard of the house.

It is palpable. He is trying to settle in after the sudden trade from Oakland, focusing on learning Vic Fangio's defense. With or without one of the league's best pass rushers the Oakland defense is pretty talent bare, which is the core of the argument for the Raiders trading Mack rather than giving him a cap-straining contract.

"Well, I would say (Mack) could be a major help to us", Fangio said. Only four teams won by scoring 30 points or more. Keeping Aaron Rodgers upright could be the most important component of the game. OLB Leonard Floyd, the ninth overall pick in the 2016 draft, is playing with a protective club over his fractured right hand.

Smith said the tight hamstring that sidelined him from the second joint practice in Denver in mid-August until this week was "never anything too insane", and said he felt "fine" prior to practicing on Wednesday. In fact, a two-game sweep of the league's oldest rivalry a year ago put the Packers ahead 96-94-6 all-time. If Howard can get one-on-one matchups with a linebacker, the Bears should feel very good about him being able to create separation on pass routes.
