Just a month ago, the Green Bay Packers were riding high at 4–1, fresh off a 35–31 win at Dallas, and looking like the class of the NFC. Then Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in a loss at Minnesota, and the Packers haven’t won since.
Believe it or not, but Sunday’s matchup between Chicago and New Orleans features two of the hotter teams in the NFL right now. The Bears (3-4) have won two in a row after last week’s 17-3 victory over Carolina at home in which the defense suffocated the Panthers, holding them to just a field goal.
Aaron Rodgers’ season ended on Sunday with a broken collarbone at the hands of the Vikings. The Green Bay quarterback joins the ranks of many signal-callers whose season has ended or been interrupted due to injuries.
It's a big stage for Mitchell Trubisky's first career NFL start. The No. 2 overall draft pick out of North Carolina gets to show the nation on "Monday Night Football" what he's made out of, and hopefully interject some life into Chicago's offense.
It's Thursday Night Football time. The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers have met 192 times in the regular season and twice more in the postseason. The series is deadlocked at 94–94–6, and one would think the series has seen it all.
