The Bears will host the Packers in Week 17 for the NFC North crown. The Packers are coming off a loss to the Steelers, while the Bears were blown out in Philadelphia in Week 16. Both teams have dealt with several injuries and none have been bigger than those to their starting quarterbacks. Both Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler have missed extended time this season and Matt Flynn and Josh McCown have tried to keep their respective teams afloat. While Cutler is back in action, it is unclear whether Rodgers will play or not.
