I still wouldn't take much from the game as far as who wins unless one or the other has a decisive win. You can throw the records out when these two face each other. It's always a nail biter. That is what makes this game so special, not the records, but the history. Of course bragging rights are nice to have.

I agree. I'm more concerned with how the O-line plays and how the running game performs than the win. Although a win away at this point in the season is not necessarily crucial it would be nice. First place in the division, a one game lead over the Bears with a win at Soldier Field, and a two game lead over the Vikes sure beats the alternative.

It's been said by others, but I have to reiterate it.... tonight's game will be won by the team that commits the fewest turnovers. If the line gives Rodgers enough time, that should be the Packers.

Turnovers usually are a function of how the lines play. So is a running game. The Bears have allowed 28 yards rushing per game so far. If the Packers can't do better than that it could get ugly.

The Bears allowing 28 yards per game and being 2-0 is NOT a coincidence. There is a connection. The Packers O-line can give Aaron more time, in part, by establishing a reasonable running game. It won't need to be great, but it has to be better than 28 yards.

Im actually thinking this could be a high scoring game. Bears 35 Pack 7 LOL!! Seriously this should be a great game between two good teams. I expect all of the Viking scouts there because they know that either one of these teams can whoop their butts.

A biggie indeed.The winner takes a 1 game lead.Pressure should be on CHicago as if GB wins this one,its not only a 1 game lead,its a div win, a road win and it forces Chi. to take it back in GB at the end of the season if it does in fact come down to these 2 teams. Lets not count out Minn yet and im sure Chi and GB will both lose some games in the future as well,but just between these 2, pressure is on Chi.
All points above are valid. GBP is right, we better do a hell of alot better then 28 yards rushing or AR better have a major hot streak!
Answerman is right with fewest turnovers and Jeremy with the div. throw the record out the window.
The team also with the better game plan and exacutes it best should win this.
Its been mentioned by a few that Clifton and College will play. An experienced Clifton whi is banged up or a healthy big strong kid like Bulaga in his first pro start ,either way a TE will be chipping in to help a bit.I wonder if Jason Spitz should maybe play against the interior of CHi. defensive line instead of Colledge.Thats the unwritten key.If the Packers can contain Peppers and the LG spot holds their own and protection and run blocking,it should be a good sign for the offense.The other 3 ( Wells,Sitton and Tauscher) should do fine,its AR backside protection ( Left side of O line and if they play well,) if they dont play well AR will be running and its up to the defense to pound and pressurer Cutler and Cutlers quick back and get rid of it to keep Clay mathews out of their backfield and to keep the Bears score down a bit.If AR has time,i dont see Chi stopping the passing game.That goes for any NFL qb,any qb with time will pick apart any defense even as good as Chi.but AR is a better qb then most and his WR corp and TE are bested by very few if any teams in the NFL.

My hats off to the Bears. Their defense pressured the Packers into many of the numerous penalties. Moreover, Cutler and the Bears overcame a 10-0 deficit despite a near nonexistent ground game and without the same level of receiving talent that the Packers have at their disposal. Impressive.

Shouldn't Julius Peppers be retiring soon?

18 penalties will not beat the Lions either. The holding calls against the o-line worry me, I hope that doesn't become a trend. They were obviously outmatched in that area, at least they didn't allow AR to get knocked out, that is about the only good thing with those holding calls.

Hell Mathews got held tons of times and nothing was called.Both the Chi WR and GB corner BOTH locked up on that PI play at the end and the GB player got called.It works both ways.
I wouldnt talk shit yet,Its still a lot of football left to be played. The post game guys had it right.The Packers are the better team and they just didnt win tonight,its a long season and in the end GB will beat out Chi.

Quit whining. You would think your team lost! Do you really think you're the first person to notice that Peppers is a good player? Thanks for pointing it out genius. Nobody else noticed.

Since I'm a nice guy I'm going to start referring to you as "Mr. Obvious" or would you prefer "Mr. Foot-in-the-Mouth"? Either one is better than "A-hole" which really sums it up best.

eric, that was one of the clearest and most foolish cases of interference in NFL history. However, as you said there's alot of football left to be played. There isn't anyway you're going to get through to a guy ignorant enough to start claiming that Mathews isn't any good. He obviously can't recognize good football players.

As the season goes on, hopefully the Packers play smarter and get rid of some of the foolish penalties. Just playing smarter could have made a difference.

wawawawawawwa , better teams find a way to win. 18 penalties beacuse the pack was frustrated with bears. You have a long wait for the Bears to give it to you again. Clay.... watch Peppers, urlacher, Briggs on tape and maybe learn something from this guys. They play with heart, Brains,class, and talent. Playing dirty and angry will only go so far. The Bears are NUMBER ONE in the Division and also sit on top of the NFC! Who's the better team? has this team with AR ever been ontop the division? The NFC? When and if you are in Bears number one spot you can call yourself the better team or anything you want. The pack with AR still to this day haven't won anything yet!!!! You keep saying the Pack will own the Division ,win play off games, and be in the Superbowl. Funny thing is.....you never have! " Packers are the better team, they just did't win tonight" that's like saying the pack is a Superbowl Team, we just haven't won one yet.
