NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Week Seven in the NFL begins with a clash of two NFC North teams. The Packers and the Bears have both had interesting starts to their season. The Bears of course lost their opener to the Texans before losing their starting QB Jay Cutler during their Week Two clash with the Eagles.

ENTER BRIAN HOYER, SAVIOR OF THE BEARS’ SEASON, SCOURGE OF HOUSTON, AND COVER MODEL FOR BALD MEN MONTHLY.

Hoyer hasn’t set the world on fire since taking over, but he has guided the Bears to their only win this season, a Week Four victory over the Lions.

The Packers, on the other hand, are the poor and sorry victims of the ‘‘OH NO,THE PACKERS LOST, IS AARON RODGERS BAD NOW?!?!?!?!’’ plague that possesses every poor media member seemingly each week. It’s not even a recent trend. It’s honestly rare to see a QB or a player get this kind of perpetual fretting over from the media. It’s almost Mother Hen-like in just how much people invest in six weeks’ worth play without seemingly considering the historical precedence that Rodgers has set. It’s almost as though these people are deliberately doing this. That being said, until Aaron Rodgers is no longer Aaron Rodgers, he’s still Aaron Rodgers. The Green Bay Packers are still going to be a really good team.

This will be your open thread for the evening, so do enjoy having Brian Hoyer flashbacks and watching Aaron Rodgers torch another defense.  If you're looking for a free, legal online stream for the game, SB Nation has one for you right here.
