Thursday night's prime time game between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers is actually a pretty good one, or should be anyway. Green Bay is currently favored by six points, as much as a full touchdown on others. Rams fans should pay close attention to both of these teams because they're both on the Rams' schedule this season.

In fact, the Rams travel to Chicago in Week 3 for what could be a tough game against the Bears. They run heavily, but not as much as they used to with the addition of Brandon Marshall. Keep an eye on Alshon Jeffery, who was once considered the top receiver in the 2012 NFL Draft. A poor senior season sunk his draft stock, but all that potential didn't just evaporate into thin air.

Kickoff from Lambeau Field is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET on Thursday, Sept. 13. NFL Network will televise the game live. For more updates, injury news, fantasy football advice, animated GIFs and lots more follow along with the StoryStream at SB Nation.
