The NFL's oldest rivalry resumes on Sunday with postseason implications at stake for both the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. The 200th overall meeting between these two teams (Packers lead series 98-95-6) could wind up being one of the bigger games of the NFL's 100th season.
Week 14 of the NFL season will begin with a game between the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears that could have major playoff implications in the NFC. Both teams are 6-6 and find themselves in the national spotlight for the second consecutive Thursday.
A general view in America is that the NFL owns a day of the week in Sunday. By that rationale, the league also owns one holiday of the year in Thanksgiving. It’s hard to think of Turkey Day without the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, and now that third night game popping into your head.
Lambeau Field will provide the backdrop for the 118th all-time meeting between bitter division rivals on Sunday, as the Green Bay Packers play host to the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers lead the all-time series 60-54-3. However, Green Bay has not beaten Minnesota since 2016. The two teams played to a 29-29 tie last year in Green Bay, while the Vikings edged out the Packers by a score of 24-17 in Minnesota last season. Both teams look to remain unbeaten and gain an early-season stronghold in the NFC North with a win on Sunday.
