Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers Facts, Notes and Stats


Welcome one and all to Bears-Packers week!  It’s one of the game’s greatest rivalries and it’s coming to Chicago on Sunday afternoon.  The Cheeseheads are going to be bringing their wives, husbands, cousins…oh, wait, that’s redundant…well, either way, they’re all leaving their farms and heading down to Soldier Field.  You will be able to pick out the women because they will have mustaches bushier than Ditkas.

Let’s hope the Bears O-line can hold up and Jay Cutler can put some points on the board.  A win could be just what the Bears need to give them some momentum in the division.  You can’t help but get pumped for playing the Packers.  It’s always a fun game to watch.  I’m ready.  Are you?
