The 182nd meeting between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears came down to the final minutes. Just what you’d expect from a rivalry game.
The Packers stormed to a big lead, then held off a Chicago rally for a 21-14 win on Sunday in the NFC Championship game.
The Bears did it with third-string quarterback Caleb Hanie, who came in after starter Jay Cutler sat out most of the second half because of a knee injury, while backup Todd Collins was pulled after two ineffective series.
The Green Bay Packers clinched a berth in Super Bowl XLV with a 21-14 win against the Chicago Bears.
The Packers, who didn’t clinch a playoff berth until Week 17, became the first sixth-seeded NFC team to earn a trip to the Super Bowl. They won three straight playoff games on the road to get there.
