If the Green Bay Packers are going to beat the Chicago Bears on Sunday and earn a NFC playoff bid they most likley have to keep the ball out of the hands of return man Devin Hester. The NFL’s all time return leader burned Green Bay for a 62-yard punt return for a touchdown in the Bears win earlier this season at Soilder Field. Head coach Mike McCarthy says that Hester is probably the Bears best all around player and they can’t give him a chance to beat them. Punter Tim Masthay says that he learned his lesson in the last meeting. He says that he kicked to Hester with a high punt with lots of hang time and he still scored at TD. Don’t look for the Packers to kick anywhere near Hester on Sunday.
Kickoff against the Bears is set for 3:15pm.
