Redskins vs Giants Live: NFL Regular Season The Washington Redskins have been a mediocre team for years, but this season looks particularly awful. An unimpressive Chicago Bears team just came into their stadium on Monday Night Football last week and blew them out. Quarterback Case Keenum threw three picks and got sacked four times during a terrible game. Read Now..”Redskins vs Giants Live”

The 2019 NFL season begins tonight with the NFL Kickoff Game featuring the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. This opener deviates from the standard practice of having the reigning Super Bowl champions host the first game of the new campaign, as it will instead showcasing two of the league’s most historic franchises to celebrate the start of the league’s 100th season. This also happens to be one of the most storied rivalries in all of sports, with tonight’s contest marking the 199th meeting of these clubs dating back to their first matchup in 1921. The Packers currently hold a slight, 97-95-6 lead in the series, but the Bears have won the most recent clash and will look to inch one step closer to evening up the rivalry tonight at home.
Oddsmakers are favoring Chicago to come away with the victory at Soldier Field, installing the squad as a three-point favorite. The Bears have come a long way since last year’s opener, as they were 7.5-point underdogs against this same Packers foe. Although Green Bay would ultimately win that game—a Sunday Night Football thriller in which Chicago squandered a 20-point lead—the Bears had no issues covering the spread and made it clear that they would be a contender that season, going on to make the playoffs for the first time since 2010. Although Chicago would ultimately suffer a heartbreak in the Wild Card game against the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles, losing on a missed 43-yard field goal that hit both the upright and crossbar, the club appears poised to equal or even surpass its 12-4 record from last year and make an even deeper foray into the postseason. Vegas has the Bears at 12-1 to win the Super Bowl, tied with the Eagles and New Orleans Saints for best odds in the NFC and behind only the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs for top overall.
The Packers certainly won’t go down without a fight despite their status as ‘dogs in the 2019 NFL Kickoff Game. Green Bay is also a legitimate threat this year—getting 20-1 odds from the sportsbooks to win it all, putting the team in the upper echelon of contenders—and has a healthy, improved lineup compared to the one that limped to a 6-9-1 finish last season and missed the playoffs for the second straight season. Oddmakers have the Packers at even money to break that slump and get back in the postseason this year, but they’ll have their work cut out in a brutally tough NFC North division. Getting an upset on the road in Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season will go a long way towards helping Green Bay’s chances of making a run this season.
