NFL Playoff Schedule: Bears Host Packers Next Sunday

New, 1 comment

The Chicago Bears, the NFC's No. 2 seed, moved on this week beating the Seattle Seahawks at home. The Bears will stay in Chicago as they host the Green Bay Packers next Sunday. The game will take place at 2:00 p.m. (CT) next Sunday on FOX. 

The Bears were heavy favorites over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday and took care of business.  They have one of the league's best defenses and they'll need every bit of them against Aaron Rodgers. The Packers QB had a career game on Saturday completing 31-of-36 passes for over 360 yards and three touchdowns. 

The Bears and Packers have played twice this season splitting the series. The Bears beat the Packers in Chicago in Week 3, 20-17. The Packers topped the Bears in Green Bay on the last week of the season, 10-3. 

These are both outstanding games and the common theme is defense as all four teams rank in the top six in the NFL on defense. As usual, the game may still come down to whoever has the better quarterback.
