The Bears Victory on Sunday means that the N.F.C. championship game next Sunday at Soldier Field will be against the Bears’ biggest and oldest rival, the Green Bay Packers.
Some interesting Statistics:
*The Bears (12-5) and Packers (12-6) have met 181 times, more than any two teams in N.F.L. history.
*But they have played only once in the playoffs, and that was in 1941. The Bears beat the Packers that December day at Wrigley Field in a divisional playoff, 33-14, and then beat the Giants for the N.F.L. championship.
*The Bears and the Packers split two games this season. With Chicago already assured a division title and a first-round bye, the Packers beat the Bears, 10-3, in Green Bay on Jan. 2 to clinch a wild-card spot. Green Bay went on to beat the Philadelphia Eagles in the first round and, then on Saturday night, the Atlanta Falcons in the second.
The Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay for the N.F.C. Championship will be played Sunday December 23 at 2:00 at Chicago’s Soldier Field….GO BEARS!
