Packers vs. Bears, Week 17: Game Thread #1

Join APC as the Packers try to win the NFC North today against the Chicago Bears.

Week 17 has finally arrived, and with it comes the game to decide all the marbles in the NFC North. Either the Green Bay Packers will rise from the ashes to win the division with an 8-7-1 record, or the Chicago Bears will enter the playoffs as the division champs at 9-7. Either way, the winners get a home game next week while the losers go home to watch the playoffs from their couches.

With everything on the line, Aaron Rodgers has returned from his collarbone injury (suffered the last time the Packers and Bears met) to lead Green Bay in glorious battle. Eddie Lacy will play on a hobbled ankle, and Randall Cobb has been activated as well. However, Clay Matthews appears to be done for the season, and the team will need to get key contributions from Nick Perry and a group of young linebackers.

It's all on the line. The oldest rivalry in pro football renews once again in one of its biggest games in recent memory.

Go Pack, Go.
