Green Bay Packers
Well, here we are. It’s Bears week and the Green Bay Packers have a chance to clinch another NFC North divisional title with a win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. These are the types of matchups that the schedule makers and NFL hope for this late in the season.
When earlier this year it seemed that the Packers would be facing seemingly insurmountable odds to surpass the Bears in the North, all of the chips have started to fall into place. The Bears have lost four of their last five games and are staring at a good possibility that their playoff chances will be reduced to a wild card chase.
