The NFL’s oldest rivalry takes center stage tonight on Monday Night Football as the Green Bay Packers visit the Chicago Bears. Both teams are 2-0 with sole possession of 1st place in the NFC North on the line.
Chicago holds a 91-82-6 all-time mark in the previous 179 meetings of the series. It will also be the 10th time the teams meet on Monday night with the Packers holding a 5-4 advantage. Packers WR Greg Jennings on the rivalry:
Monday night means “Prime Time” which a lot of athletes love. The fact that all eyes are on them is added motivation. Packers OL Josh Sitton doesn’t feel that way:
Green Bay took both games in 2009 and have won 4 of the last 5 in series. Tonight’s kickoff is set for 7:30. Temperature in Chicago should be right around 60 degrees.
