The Bears and Packers are just about set for the 187th meeting of the longest running rivalry in the NFL. The Packers have dominated the series in recent years, although the Bears are riding a 2-game winning streak against the Pack on Monday Night Football. Strange things happen, I guess.
Here are the Packers inactives:
Chris Harper, James Nixon, Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Jermichael Finey, Josh Boyd, C.J. Wilson.
They’ll be without a couple of their pass rushers, so that could bode well for the Bears. This also means that wide receiver James Jones will be back in action after missing time with a bad wheel.
Here are the Bears inactives:
QB Jay Cutler, WR Joe Anderson, LB Lance Briggs, OL James Brown, OL Jonathan Scott, DE Cornelius Washington & DT Zach Minter
No big surprises there. I guess Brandon Marshall’s optimism didn’t translate into a miracle cure for Cutler. On the bright side, Peanut Tillman will be a go to chase around Jordy Nelson and the aforementioned James Jones.
