It’s already the NFL’s week 15 and let’s cut to the chase in the NFC North. This is a week that most Packers fans had circled on the schedule as soon as it came out. Is there a more intense week in the Packers universe than “Bears week”?
The Green Bay Packers travel to Chicago to take on the Bears in this highly-anticipated game that will be the marquis matchup not just in the NFC North, but in the NFL.
The Packers can clinch their second straight North division title with a win. The Bears would re-enter the divisional race as a strong contender should they emerge victorious. The early line this week favors Green Bay by three.
The Minnesota Vikings will travel to St. Louis to take on the Rams. This ends up being an interesting game because neither of these teams wants to go away quietly this year.
The week is rounded off by the Detroit Lions visiting the Arizona Cardinals in the “futility bowl”. Nothing more than pride is on the line in that contest.
Let’s dive into the matchups and the storylines alike.
Green Bay Packers (9-4) at Chicago Bears (8-5)
Because of the major playoff implications, I’m leading off with this matchup and will go more in depth with this game.
This game has changed shape immensely in the past month. What was being billed as possibly one of the biggest game on the NFL schedule this season has turned into somewhat of a last stand for the Bears.
