Happy Packer day, Packerland! Today, your Green Bay Packers travel to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears. If they win, they wrap up the division title with two games left to play in the season. Win, lose or tie, they control their own destiny and can still win the division if they win out, but let's hope no one told the players. I'd like it if they treated this like a must-win game.
The Packers made the Bears look silly in their first meeting, but that was at Lambeau, and home field advantage seems to matter quite a bit in this rivalry. However, Clay Matthews is back, while the Bears' o-line is still shaky and Jay Cutler's mobility should be limited due to a mild knee sprain. I'm thinking the Packers' pass rush -- or lack thereof -- will be the big difference today.
If you missed the inactives, they're right here. You can find a reminder of all the basics below. Chat away!
