The Green Bay Packers (13-1) can wrap up the #1 seed in the NFC this weekend. A win over the Chicago Bears (7-7) Sunday night at Lambeau Field would do just that, but it may not even get that far.
Saturday the San Francisco 49ers travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. A win by Seattle would also guarantee that the road to the Super Bowl in the NFC would go through Lambeau Field.
No matter what is on the line when the ball is kicked Sunday, it’s still a rivalry. That’s the approach that Safety Charlie Peprah is taking:
The Bears playoff chances are about as slim as they can be. They need Detroit and Atlanta to lose out AND Seattle to drop at least one of their final two-games at the least.
This will be the 182nd regular season meeting between the franchises. Chicago has the 91-84 edge with 6 ties mixed in. This will also be the 2nd time each team will play on Christmas Day. The two teams met in 2005 with the Packers winning 24-17.
Kickoff Sunday night from Lambeau Field is set for 7:20.
