Check out Jim Poore's Thursday night pick for Week Two (Packers vs Bears). All picks are against the spread.

  These Thursday night NFL games are really messing up my schedule. I better get used to it because I know there are a lot of midweek games this year. This Thursday's game should be a great matchup in Green Bay. Let's get to the pick.
GREEN BAY  5 1/2  Chicago
These teams got off to opposite starts last week. Chicago's win wasn't a surprise in beating Indianapolis, but the Packers lost at home to San Francisco. The 49ers are very good, but beating the Packers at Lambeau Field was definitely a surprise. This week will be different though. The Packers cannot afford to start the season 0-2, especially in a tough division like the NFC North. The Bears are very decent, but don't get caught up too much in last week's win. It is very early in the season but Green Bay needs to win this game. And they will.
Packers  30-17
