Packers clinch consecutive NFC North titles with win over the Bears

With a hard-fought 21-13 win at Soldier Field, the Green Bay Packers have won the NFC North Division for the second consecutive season.

It’s a great day for Packers fans as the Chicago Bears are also sent into desperation mode in regards to their playoff hopes.

Green Bay (10-4) has now won 12 straight against divisional opponents and have their eye set on a first-round bye and home-field advantage in the playoffs.

Will Bears Get Matt Forte Back This Season?

The Chicago Bears season fell apart yesterday after the Kansas City Chiefs shocked them 10-3 on Sunday in Chicago. What seemed like the easiest of wins left on the schedule before QB Jay Cutler returns.

Whom are we kidding, Cutler isn’t coming back this year, but if he actually were to return in time for the playoffs this was a key game to get.

RB Matt Forte suffered what is being described as a low-grade MCL sprain and it seems Forte could miss 2-4 weeks. Although he is known as a quick healer. As pathetic as the Bears offense looked yesterday versus a terrible team like the Kansas City Chiefs, the Bears could still find themselves well within the NFC playoff picture in the final weeks.

Previewing Packers/Bears NFC Championship (Green and Yellow Music Video)


Believe it or not; the NFL’s oldest rivalry has seen the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears make the playoffs in the same year only four times.

In those four years, the Packers and Bears have met in the playoffs two times. The last meeting coming in 1941, at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The Bears won 33-14 behind offensive stars George McAfee, Norm Standlee and Hugh Gallarneau.

This time around, it’s Jay Cutler vs. Aaron Rodgers and a battle between two of the best defenses in all of the league. The NFC Championship also serves as a rare rubber match because the two teams split their two games in the regular season.

In addition to a preview, it’s only appropriate I include the music video for the Packers 2011 Playoff Anthem, “Green and Yellow.” To avoid any musical bias, make sure to check out the 2011 Chicago Bears Super Bowl Shuffle Remix.
