It’s the Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers as the most-played rivalry in NFL history continues this Sunday, September 18 at Lambeau Field. Sunday night’s game marks the 205th meeting between the two teams. Historically, the Packers lead the series 103-95-6. Live coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock with Football Night in America. See below for additional information on how to watch the game.
Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears pulled off a 19-10 upset over the 49ers in their season opener last Sunday. The victory marks the second-year QB’s first as a starter since October 10th last year (week 5 against the Las Vegas Raiders). Fields went 8-of-17 for 121 yards, with two touchdowns, and an interception. WR Dante Pettis had a 51-yard touchdown catch in Sunday’s win while WR Equanimeous St. Brown had an 18-yard touchdown reception.
Head coach Matt Eberflus became just the fifth Bears head coach to win his debut with the team. Eberflus, the former defensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts for the previous 4 seasons, was hired in January by new General Manager Ryan Poles. Poles was also hired in January by the Bears after spending the past 13 seasons serving as an executive with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers lost 23-7 at home to Minnesota last Sunday. Rodgers, who turns 39 in December, finished 22-of-34 for 195 yards with zero touchdowns and two turnovers (1 INT, 1 fumble). The four-time NFL MVP entered his 18th NFL season after signing a 3-year, $150 million extension with the Packers in March. However, this year, Rodgers will have to adjust to playing without superstar WR Davante Adams who was traded to the Raiders back in March. WRs Christian Watson and Sammy Watkins started in last Sunday’s loss after top returning pass catcher Allen Lazard was out with an ankle injury but it was ultimately RB AJ Dillon who led the team in receptions, receiving yards, and targets.
