One of the NFL's oldest rivalries will continue in Week 10 when the Green Bay Packers host the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football. These two teams have been playing each other since the beginning of the NFL, and to this day, remain two of the biggest rivals in any sport. This is their second meeting this season, with the Packers dismantling the Bears in Week 4, 38-17.
Since that first matchup, the two teams have headed in opposite directions. After beginning the year 1-2, Green Bay has won four of its past five games to climb to 5-3, just behind the Detroit Lions for the top spot in the NFC North. Aaron Rodgers is reminding everyone why he's one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, throwing three or more touchdowns in all four of those wins.
However, the Packers enter this game coming off a loss to the New Orleans Saints, so they'll be hoping to rebound when the fading Bears come to town. Chicago began the year 2-1, but has lost four of its past five games to drop to 3-5 and last place in the NFC North. Jay Cutler has been a big part of the problem, throwing six interceptions over the past five games.
Any rivalry game is a must-win for both teams, but the Bears need to turn things around quickly, while the Packers will be looking to keep pace with the Lions.
