1946

(09-29-46) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - The rough, rugged Bears from Chicago, flashing the power of prewar days, crushed the Green Bay Packers 30-7 , in the 1946 season opener. The vaunted Packer passing of the Hutson and earlier eras was a formless shadow. In the air, the Packers were futile and failed to complete a pass until they started their touchdown drive in the final period, and on the ground they merely dented the bulwark Bear line. The Bears ground out 18 first downs to the Packers' five and gained 258 yards rushing to Green Bay's' 99. A 27-yard field goal opened the Bears scoring in the first quarter after they had ground to a halt following a drive of five straight first downs. Late in the second period, they drove 60 yards to a score. Hugh Gallarneau, Ray McLean and Bill Osmanski bulled and ran for substantial gains and Sid Luckrnan completed the stretch with a touchdown pass to McLean. A Packer fumble by Tony Canadeo on his own 45 set the stage for the second touchdown and Luckman again whipped a 9-yard throw to Ken Kavanaugh for the score. Tom Ferris intercepted Canadeo's pass on the Packer 27 in the third period and on the next play Dick Schweidler scooted around left end for the third touchdown. Cliff Aberson averted a shutout by sparking the Packers' lone scoring drive. He completed passes to Dick Prescott and Bob Nussbaumer and sprinted 12 yards to put the ball on the 9-yard line from where Roy McKay ran it over and added the point. Several Packers went down with injuries - Irv Comp (torn lip), Nolan Luhn (nose) and Herman Rohrig (cracked rib). Carl Mulleneaux's career ended when he was hit viciously by Chicago's John Schiechl on a punt return. - Played at City Stadium in Green Bay - narrated, color original game film (10 minutes)

(12-15-46) 1946 NFL Championship - Chicago Bears @ New York Giants - Backs Frank Filchock and Merle Hapes of the Giants were questioned about an attempt by a New York man to fix the championship game with the Bears. Bell suspended Hapes but allowed Filchock to play; he played well, but Chicago won 24-14. (38m) (b/w, narrated, A-)

1965

(10-03-65) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - In the first game in Green Bay to draw more than 50,000 fans, the winless Chicago Bears may have found what the Green Bay Packers have been looking for since the start of their season - a running game that goes. The Packers, 23-14 victors over the Bears followed their opportunistic defense to victory for the third straight week. But their ground game, which netted only 78 yards, was plainly in need for nourishment. So was the Bears before rookie Gale Sayers and second-year man Andy Livingston, teamed to give Chicago a second-half boost. The efforts of Sayers and Livingston came too late for the Bears to overcome a 20-0 halftime deficit, but they did take some of the sting out of the defeat. Sayers scored twice, one on a 65-yard pass play, while picking up 80 yards in 17 carries. Livingston, who signed as a free agent after attending Phoenix Junior College, gained 70 yards in 10 carries. The success of the two young runners opened up the airwaves for Rudy Bukich, who took over at quarterback in George Halas' revamped second-half backfield. Bukich proceeded to complete 13 of 20 passes for 195 yards as the Bears, outgained 186 to 104 in the first half, rolled up 309 yards in the second half to take total offense honors, 413 to 299. Only a Green Bay defense that was stingy inside its own 10 and a rules infraction that nullified a Bukich to Johnny Morris touchdown pass kept the Bears from an upset. Bart Starr picked up a bit of the slack with his passing as he completed 11 of 20 throws for 263 yards. - NFL Films highlights from "2 at Lambeau DVD" - game in color and narrated - original (25 mins) (Quality 9)

(10-31-65) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - The perfect record of the Green Bay Packers was smashed, 31-10, by the inspired Chicago Bears, whose brilliant Gale Sayers streaked 62 yards with a punt return for the game's decisive play. The Packer downfall after six straight victories also stemmed from three Bear thefts of passes by Bart Starr, who had only two intercepted previously. Two interceptions led to the second and third Bear touchdowns which put the Packers behind 17-7 in the second quarter. Sayers, one of four different Chicago players scoring touchdowns, sewed up the fourth straight Bear victory after three defeats with his 62-yard punt return early in the third period.. The rookie from Kansas raced to the Packer 15 after some tremendous running, and three plays later Jon Arnett slammed across from the two-yard line. That put the Bears ahead 24-10 and left the Packers easy prey for a fourth quarter touchdown on Ron Bull's five-yard end run which capped a 62-yard Chicago drive in 10 plays. Green Bay's only touchdown against the fierce Bear defense came in the first quarter for a 7-0 Packer lead. Jim Taylor capped a 70-yard Packer march, including Starr's 33-yard run to the Bear 14, with a one-yard scoring smash. During this four-week stretch (October 24-November 14), Green Bay would be sacked 25 times, fail to throw a touchdown pass, and fail to complete a pass longer than 25 yards, yet win two of the four contests. - NFL Play By Play - color and narrated. - original (25 mins) (Quality 9) - Added March, 2011

1966

(08-12-66) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Annual Midwest Shrine Game - Pete Rozelle may have winced Friday night, but Vince Lombardi again showed his disdain for the image makers of the NFL.The league, seeking every opportunity to gain exposure before the country's armchair quarterbacks, televised the first of four Friday night pre-season exhibition games nationally. The NFL figured it had a showcase attraction for the first game, a match between the defending champion Packers and the team considered most likely to dethrone them, the arch-rival Chicago Bears. It was advertised as a game that would be played like the title was at stake. But Lombardi played it for what it was, a pre-season exhibition that gave him a chance to look over his entire squad. While Bear coach George Halas went all the way with his top quarterback Rudy Bukich and flashy halfback Gale Sayers while rallying to a 13-10 victory, Lombardi kept his 1-2 punch, Paul Hornung and Jim Taylor, on the bench throughout the second half and poured 46 of his 52 players into the contest. Lombardi went most of the second half with Zeke Bratkowski at quarterback and rookie Ron Rector and third year man Allan Jacobs as his backs. - Color, original game film, edited huddles, silent (41 mins) (Quality 8.5)

(10-16-66) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Paul Hornung and Jim Taylor remembered what it means to be a star. Hornung and Taylor, whom experts said were slowing down to a walk, ran with their old verve and power to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 17-0 victory over the Chicago Bears. The failure of Hornung and Taylor to run like their old selves in the last two games had given coach Vince Lombardi the idea of benching his two stars in favor of youngsters Donny Anderson and Jim Grabowski. But because of the importance of the game, Lombardi went with his two veterans and the psychology paid off as each man turned in an exceptional game. Taylor caught passes of 12 and 16 yards and ran for 11 more during the Packers' 66-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter with Hornung taking the ball in for the score from the one. Ray Nitschke intercepted a Rudy Bukich pass later in the third period to set up a 30-yard field goal by Don Chandler and Willie Wood ran back an intercepted pass 20 yards for a TD in the final quarter to complete the Packers' scoring. The Green Bay defense held Chicago to 94 total yards of offense and Gale Sayers to 25 yards on 15 carries. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - original, 26 minutes (Quality 9) - Added June, 2009

(11-13-66) San Francisco 49ers @ Chicago Bears - Sayers and Bears tie Brodie and 49ers, 30-30 at Wrigley Field - Fine merge of color game film with nice narration and NFL Films type music in the background. about 28 minutes

(11-20-66) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - Roger Leclerc missed a fourth period conversion that would have tied the score and the Green Bay Packers stormed back for a touchdown enabling them to defeat the Chicago Bears 13-6. The victory, coupled with Detroit's 20-14 upset of the Baltimore Colts, gave the Packers undisputed possession of first place in the NFL's Western Conference. The Bears had just pulled within a point at 7-6 when Gale Sayers crashed over for a touchdown from the two with 9:29 left in the game. LeClerc's cleats apparently caught the turf as his foot swung into the ball on the point after touchdown attempt, and the Packers' Lee Roy Caffey slapped the ball down. The Packers then drove downfield after the kickoff for a touchdown that put the victory under wraps. Carroll Dale capped the 63-yard march by outracing defender Charles Brown on a 33-yard pass from Zeke Bratkowski. Dale's touchdown was his second of the game. The first came on a six-yard pass from Bratkowski, who took over for the injured Bart Starr at the start of the second period. The touchdown came moments after the Chicago line stopped a Green Bay drive that had reached just inside the 10-yard line. Three running plays failed to get the Packers the two yards they needed for a first down and the Bears took over. Three plays later Ronnie Bull, jolted by Lionel Aldridge, fumbled and Caffey recovered for the Packers on the Chicago 18. A delay of game penalty pushed the ball back to the 23, then Jimmy Taylor bulled his way to the nine after taking a swing pass from Bratkowski. Elijah Pitts and Taylor sliced to the six and Bratkowski found Dale alone about a foot inside the goal line for the touchdown. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - original - narrated (26 mins) (Quality 9) - Upgraded June, 2011

 

1968

(11-03-68) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - Mae Percival caught a free ride for his thrill of the week and the Green Bay Packers couldn't lift a finger as he kicked their teeth in. Pervical booted a 43-yard field goal on a rarely-invoked free kick with 26 seconds to play, giving the Chicago Bears a 13-10 victory over the struggling National Football League champs. The Packers, who had spent most of the afternoon chasing Gale Sayers up and down Lambeau Field, stood by helplessly as Percival kicked the winning three-pointer after Chicago Coach Vince Dooley went for the free kick option. An NFL rule permits a free kick, punt or placement, without opposition after one team makes a fair catch of a punt. So, when Cecil Turner fielded Donny Anderson's short punt on the Green Bay 43, Dooley called the shot - and Percival delivered. Sayers ran through the Packers for 205 yards - his biggest ground-gaining binge as a pro, but he almost wore goat horns after fumbling on the Chicago 39 midway in the final quarter with the game tied 10-10. Packer defensive back Herb Adderley grabbed the ball and raced to the 14, but the Bears held and Chuck Mercein's field goal attempt sailed wide. Minutes later, Percival was on target with his 11th field goal in 12 attempts in the Bears' last three games. He kicked a 10-yarder in the second period for a string of 10 without a miss, but had another three-point bid blocked by Lee Roy Caffey early in the fourth period.

(12-15-68) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Don Horn started the day backing up Green Bay's back-up quarterback and wound up throwing the Chicago Bears for a fatal loss. He had an unlikely band of Packer-backers from Minnesota behind him all the way. Horn, activated Saturday night by the Packers as standby for Zeke Bratkowski, Bart Starr's relief pitcher, came off the bench and keyed a 28-27 triumph over Chicago that knocked the Bears out of the National Football League championship picture. Chicago's setback, coupled with Minnesota's 24-17 victory at Philadelphia, crowned the Vikings as champions of the Central Division. But the Vikings, who followed the Green Bay-Chicago game via clubhouse radio after the finish of their game, had to sweat out a furious Bear charge in the final minutes before nailing their first division title in eight years as a NFL expansion franchise. Horn, released from the Army just 10 days ago, entered the Packers-Bears scrap with Chicago leading 10-7 in the first quarter after Bratkowski, who had started in place of the injury-plagued Starr, was shaken up. The 23-year-old San Diego State alumnus, Green Bay's No. 1 draft choice last year, uncorked a 67-yard touchdown pass to Jim Grabowski and then set up Chuck Mercein's one-yard scoring plunge with a 45-yard pass to Boyd Dowler as the Packers grabbed a 21-10 halftime lead. Horn capped an 83-yard third quarter drive with a 25-yard TD strike to Dowler, boosting the margin to 28-10, before the Bears struck back. Ronnie Bull's eight-yard touchdown run and Mac Percival's 26-yard field goal closed the gap to 28-20 and Dick Gordon grabbed a 51-yard TD pass from Jack Concannon with 3:58 remaining in the game. Percival's conversion left the Bears one point back. The Packers, unable to move the ball after the kickoff, were forced to punt. Chicago stormed back to a first down on the Packer 43 with 1:19 to play, but Concannon was thrown for a five-yard loss, two passes failed and Ray Nitschke intercepted Concannon's desperate fourth down toss. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - original (25 mins) (Quality 7.5)

 

1969

( 08-16-69) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - 20th Annual Midwest Shriner's Game - The Packers learned Monday night that ball control isn't everything, not when there is someone named Gale Sayers around. Sayers, the only setback in the Chicago backfield on the second scrimmage play, took a handoff from Jack Concannon, sped to his left, shook two tacklers and then ran 76 yards with no one in front of him to lead the Bears to a 19-9 win over the Packers in the 20th annual Midwest Shrine Charities game. The Packers, looking far off the form that has brought them three successive championships, then plodded their way the rest of the game, controlling the ball on 76 plays to only 50 for the Bears and still not being able to pull it out. Each team managed just one score apiece after Sayers' run, the Bears on a 42-yard Mac Percival field goal in the second quarter and the Packers in the third period on a Bart Starr to Boyd Dowler pass. Game includes Chicago stars Brian Piccolo, Gale Sayers & Dick Butkus and Green Bay stars Bart Starr, Nitschke and the other Packer greats, who also play much of the game for Green Bay.

(12-14-69) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Don Horn cranked up his passing arm and drove the listless Green Bay team to three third quarter touchdowns as the Packers rolled to a 21-3 victory over Chicago. Horn's chief accomplice in the third quarter eruption was Travis Williams. He scored the Packer's first touchdown on a 39 yard run which knifed through the Bear line. Then he got behind Dick Daniels and took a Horn pass 60 yards into the end zone. In between Williams' touchdowns, Horn hit Marv Fleming from 10 yards out for another six points. Until Horn and the Packers came to life, the game was a listless, scoreless scuffle between two one time giants of pro football who are now far out of the money. The Packers could console themselves with their seventh victory in 13 starts. For the Bears, it was their 12th defeat of their worst season in history against only one victory. As usual, Gale Sayers provided the Bears with one of their few shreds of class. He ripped off 90 yards rushing to bring his league leading total to 972. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - original - Added March, 2009

(12-04-83) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - Crucially important division clash between these two old rivals goes down to the last seconds. Running back Gerry Ellis, who finished with 141 yards, gave the Packers an immediate boost. On the team's first play from scrimmage, Ellis took a Lynn Dickey hand-off and busted through the middle of the line for a 71-yard gain. On the next play, Harlan Huckleby scurried nine yards around right end with a pitch for a touchdown. The Packers took a 14-0 lead later in the quarter when Dickey hit tight end Paul Coffman with five-yard TD pass. Huckleby put the Packers ahead 28-14 with a 10-yard TD run 46 seconds into the fourth quarter. The Packers looked to be on cruise control when they got the ball back. Facing a third-and-inches from the Chicago 38, offensive coordinator Bob Schnelker called for a halfback option. The play backfired when Chicago cornerback Leslie Frazier intercepted Ellis' pass and returned it 56 yards to the Packers 24. The Bears then got another one-yard TD plunge from Matt Suhey to get to within seven. About five minutes later, Dennis McKinnon returned a Bucky Scribner punt 59 yards to tie the game with 1:50 to go. On the ensuing possession, Dickey hit Lofton with a 67-yard pass that put the Packers well within Stenerud's range. After two Jessie Clark runs, Stenerud drilled his fourth game-winning kick of the season as the clock struck zero. The boot also came after Stenerud had missed field goals of 37- and 45-yards. Ray Nitschke's number 66 was officially retired at the half. (Quality 9.5) Also have (Sun 04-Dec) Chicago Bears - "Weekend Tailgate" series - Highlights from game - NFL's Greatest Games.

(10-17-91) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - The Chicago Bears managed only one touchdown Thursday night. It was plenty against the Green Bay Packers. The Bears shut down and shut out Green Bay's sputtering offense in a 10-0 victory. It was Chicago's 11th victory in the last 13 games against its longtime rival. Jim Harbaugh's 8-yard touchdown pass to James Thornton late in the second quarter and Kevin Butter's 22-yard field goal early in the fourth sent the Bears to a victory after two straight losses. The Packers, who had 138 yards total offense and made just five first downs, fell to 14 with their fourth straight loss and 11th in 12 games dating back to last season. Don Majkowski, in one the worst performances of his career, completed only three of 16 passes for 32 yards before he was replaced by former Bear Mike Tomczak in the fourth quarter. The Packers' deepest drive all night only reached the Chicago 43. Majkowski fumbled a snap out of the shotgun and Richard Dent recovered for the Bears at the Green Bay 14 with 30 seconds to go in the third quarter. Chicago just missed a first down and settled for Butter's 22-yard field goal with 13:48 to play. - added June 2007

(12-08-91) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Jim Harbaugh threw two touchdown passes to Wendell Davis and Brad Muster ran for two touchdowns, leading the Chicago Bears to a 27-13 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The win halted a two-game losing streak by the Bears and moved them closer to their seventh Central Division title in eight years. The Packers lost their fifth in the last six games. Harbaugh completed 16 of 25 passes for 209 yards and his 35-yard touchdown to Davis late in the third quarter clinched it. Chicago's defense blanked the Packers, quarterbacked by former teammate Mike Tomczak, to the second half. Midway in the fourth quarter and down by two touchdowns, the Packers gambled on a fourth-and-three and failed when Tomczak tumbled the snap. On Green Bay's next possession, Tomczak fumbled and Tim Ryan recovered at the Chicago 42 with 3:25 left in the game. Rumors began to swirl that Lindy Infante was soon to be the ex-coach of the Green Bay Packers. - Includes commercials and halftime (Quality 9)

(12-29-91) 1991 NFC Wildcard - Dallas Cowboys @ Chicago Bears - The Cowboys jumped to a 10-0 first quarter lead and held on to win their first playoff game in nine years. Dallas' first score was a 27-yard field goal by Ken Willis. Then Cowboys linebacker Darrick Brownlow blocked a punt that was recovered by linebacker Ken Norton Jr, setting up a 1-yard touchdown by running back Emmitt Smith, who finished the game with 105 rushing yards. Bears kicker Kevin Butler kicked two field goals to cut the score 10-6 by the third period. However, Dallas responded by marching 75 yards to score on quarterback Steve Beuerlein's 3-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jay Novacek. With 2:42 left in the game, Chicago wide receiver Tom Waddle scored on a 6-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Jim Harbaugh, but the Bears could not score again. Dallas shows they are on their way to building a dynasty by giving Coach Jimmy Johnson his first playoff win, and the Cowboys first since 1982, with 17-13 win at Chicago in an upset - Added October, 2008

 

1992

(09-06-92) Detroit Lions @ Chicago Bears - This is the game that has one of the Famous Barry Sanders Runs where he somehow comes out of a crowd of Bears, hurdles a would be tackler, and bounces down the sideline for a TD. Also, a very good game. Chicago won their ninth consecutive opening day game on a six-yard, fourth down TD pass from Jim Harbaugh to Tom Waddle with one second remaining to cap off a wild 4th Qtr of scoring.

(10-25-92) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - Jim Harbaugh, who undoubtedly will be remembered for an imperfect decision that led to an earlier loss and public dressing down by coach Mike Ditka, was perfect for a good stretch. Harbaugh matched a 28-year old club record of 13 straight complete passes while leading the visiting Chicago Bears to a 30-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers. Kevin Butler kicked three field goals and Darren Lewis had a 30-yard touchdown run to make it easy for the Bears. Harbaugh's string tied the record set by Rudy Bukich over two games in 1964 and included a 4-yard touchdown pass to Keith Jennings. The passing game also set up two of Butler's field goals. The streak began early in the second quarter and ended shortly before Butler kicked a 21-yard field goal with 36 seconds left in the third. Late in the fourth quarter, the Bears drove 74 yards in 11 plays to clinch the victory on Lewis' run with 3.37 left. The loss was the third straight for the Packers and marked the first time the Bears had won two in a row this season. Harbaugh completed 16 of 23 passes for 194 yards and one touchdown, and perhaps eased the pressure Ditka put on him October 4 after the quarterback called an audible with a 20-0 lead in the fourth period against Minnesota. The Vikings intercepted for a touchdown and came back to win 21-20. Brett Favre of Green Bay saw his string of 91 passes without an interception end in the third quarter when Donnell Woolford intercepted for Chicago. - Includes NFL Today pre-game, commercials, and ESPN NFL Primetime highlights from the game (Quality 8.5)

(11-22-92) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Favre begins his mastery over the Bears - The Chicago Bears' slide continues, as does the resurgence of the Green Bay Packers. Brett Favre hit Sterling Sharpe with a 49-yard touchdown pass and scored on a 5-yard, broken-pass run to lead the Packers to a 17-3 victory over the faltering Bears. It was the third victory in the last four games for the Packers. The Bears sustained their fourth straight defeat, their longest losing streak since 1989, when they lost their last six. The teams traded first-possession field goals and, late in the first quarter, the Bears were forced to punt into the wind. Chris Gardocki managed just a 34-yard punt. On the next play, Favre and Sharpe combined on their 49-yard touchdown to put the Packers ahead to stay. It was the 66th consecutive game in which Sharpe, the league's leading receiver this year, has caught a pass. Favre completed 16 of 24 passes for 209 yards. Neither team scored in the second quarter as a light drizzle turned into rain. - This was Mike Singletary’s last game against the Packers - Includes commercials (Quality 8.5)

1993

(10-31-93) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - LeRoy Butler's quick hands and Green Bay's harassing defense meant another rough day for Jim Harbaugh and Chicago. The Packers sacked Harbaugh seven times, and Darrell Thompson ran 17 yards for a touchdown with 1:54 left to seal Green Bay's victory. Despite the rough treatment, Harbaugh tried to rally the Bears early in the fourth quarter. Trailing 10-3, the Bears moved from their 22-yard-line to the Packers' 12. But blitzing safety Butler hit Harbaugh's arm, forcing a fumble on third down that was kicked around and then recovered by Butler at the Packers' 37. The Bears got the ball back but were forced to punt after a holding penalty and a third-down sack by George Koonce. Reggie White became the all-time sacks leader with 130 1/2, getting two of the Packers' seven traps of Jim Harbaugh. He moved one ahead of Lawrence Taylor. (Quality 9)

(12-05-93) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Favre would set a Green Bay single-game record with 36 completions at Chicago breaking the previous record of 35 set by Dickey in 1980…Also threw for a career-high 402 yards vs. Bears – the third most in team history (behind Dickey's 418 vs. Tampa Bay in 1980 and Don Horn's 410 vs. the Cardinals in 1969)…It also represented the first 300- and 400-yard passing games of Favre's career. Dante Jones intercepted a pass and lateraled for one touchdown and returned a fumble for another score, leading the Chicago Bears past the Green Bay Packers 30-17 and creating a three-way tie for the NFC Central lead. Mark Carrier intercepted a pass by Brett Favre and returned it 34 yards with 1:41 left for the third touchdown of the day by the Bears' defense, cutting off Green Bay's hope for a comeback. This was the first time in 30 years that the Bears and Packers have met this late in a season with winning records, and Chicago's victory gave it an 82-59-6 lead in one of the NFL's longest rivalries. The Bears won their fourth straight game and ended a three-game winning string by the Packers. Chicago, Green Bay and Detroit, which lost 13-0 to Minnesota, are tied at 7-5. (Quality 9.0)

(12-11-94) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - A return to frigid Lambeau Field, a white-hot offense and an ice-cold Steve Walsh were just what the Green Bay Packers needed to salvage their playoff hopes. The Packers routed the Bears 40-3 Sunday as Brett Favre threw three touchdowns, two of them to Sterling Sharpe, and Green Bay's defense returned to form after a five-game skid. Chris Jacke added four field goals as the Packers won their ninth straight game at Lambeau, where they completed their first undefeated season since 1962 when Vince Lombardi won his second of five NFL titles. The stunned Bears lost their 14th straight December road game, a streak that dates to Dec. 7, 1987, when they edged the Raiders, 6-3, at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The Bears also fell from first place in the NFC Central, a game behind the Minnesota Vikings, who defeated Buffalo, 21-17, Sunday. The Packers also routed the Bears, 33-6, in a driving rainstorm on Halloween night at Soldier Field when the wind chill was 8 degrees. Although it was sunny Sunday with no snow, the temperature was 15 degrees at kickoff with a wind chill of 6. The Bears were even colder, managing just a 25-yard field goal by Kevin Butler for an early 3-0 lead before the Packers overwhelmed them. The Packers rushed for a season-high 257 yards, including 106 by fullback Edgar Bennett, who carried 22 times. Favre completed 19 of 31 passes for 250 yards with one interception. Bennett has three career 100-yard rushing games, all against the Bears. Reggie Cobb added 78 yards on 11 carries and rookie LeShon Johnson had six carries for 42 yards. The Packers' beleaguered defense, which had surrendered an average of 29 points and 392 yards per game over the last five contests, held Walsh to 13 completions in 26 attempts for 143 yards and an interception. Walsh fell to 7-2 as the Bears' starter. - (Quality 9)

(11-12-95) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - 150th Packer vs Bear meeting and one of the best ever - Brett Favre had suffered a severely sprained left ankle late in second quarter of rematch at Minnesota one week earlier (Nov. 5) – an injury which later would require off season surgery (Feb. 27, 1996) to remove several bone chips and one large spur. Favre would be listed as doubtful on the injury report all week leading up to this game and most didn’t think he would play. The ironman would play though and would the Bears ever wish he didn’t. Favre would throw for a career-high and team-record tying five touchdown passes to lead the Packers to a key 35-28 victory over the Bears. Subsequently was named NFC 'Offensive Player of the Week' (for the second time in four weeks) after completing 25 of 33 passes for 336 yards with no interceptions against Chicago, giving him a (then) career-high single-game passer rating of 147.2. Reggie White also played injured to key the defense and commented that he had to play because if Favre could play, as injured as he was, then he had no excuses not to play either.

(09-01-97) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - The Packers varied their winning formula somewhat in dispatching the Bears for the 66th time in the 78-year history of pro football's greatest rivalry. They permitted the Bears to prevail in the statistics and time of possession, categories in which they customarily dominate, and settled for the bottom line, a 38-24 margin in the score. And even the statistical (336 yards to 315) and time of possession (32 minutes, 47 seconds to 27 minutes, 13 seconds) advantages were somewhat misleading. The Packers were comfortably out front, 31-11, early in the fourth quarter and by 38-17 in the closing minutes when the Bears' Raymont Harris pulled Chicago within 14 points by way of a 68-yard scoring excursion up the middle. As Chicago was getting thumped in the fourth quarter, LB Brian Cox threw a temper tantrum at the officials and on the sideline, and was ejected from the game after flipping the bird to the crowd - (Quality 9.5)

"Everyone expects the defending champs to blow everyone out every week. Well, that's not going to happen," Packers receiver Antonio Freeman said. "We're satisfied where we are." Brett Favre survived an early interception to throw three touchdown passes and help the Packers pull into a tie with Tampa Bay atop the NFC Central. The Bears, meanwhile, matched the worst start in their 78-year history and were defeated by their oldest rivals for the eighth straight time. Chicago also lost its first seven games in 1969, when it finished 1-13. The Bears pulled within a point on Erik Kramer's 22-yard touchdown pass to Chris Penn. Rather than go for an extra-point kick, Chicago coach Dave Wannstedt went for the lead.

On the game's opening kickoff, Packers safety Gary Berry suffered a frightening neck injury and had to be taken off the field on a stretcher. After a long delay due to the injury, Brett Favre was intercepted on the game's first play from scrimmage by Chicago safety Tony Parrish, who returned the ball 36 yards to the Green Bay 17-yard line.

For two straight weeks the Bears had pulled out miraculous wins in overtime. With under two minutes to play it appeared as if the streak might continue. Driving toward the same end zone that James Allen caught a "Hail Mary" pass to tie the game last week, the Bears were faced with another tough situation.

Favre rolled left on a bootleg and sprinted for the front pylon to record the go-ahead score. The play of rookie Jamal Reynolds was not lost in the fray. On a game ending desperation drive engineered by Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell, Reynolds sacked Brunell on fourth-and-12 also forcing a fumble that was recovered by Nate Wayne. While the ending pleased the Green Bay faithful, the team got off to a slow start. at one point in the third quarter the Packers were trailing by as many as 14 points.

(12-01-02) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - Spectacular touchdown-saving plays by two backups named Walker allowed the Green Bay Packers to win their first division title in five years. The Packers won the NFC North by beating the Chicago Bears 30-20 Sunday, despite losing running back Ahman Green to a knee injury after he had produced 123 yards of offense. Rookie Tony Fisher, an undrafted free agent from Notre Dame, ran for 91 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries as the Packers (9-3) remained the only team without a loss at home. The Packers trailed 14-6 at halftime after rookie receiver Javon Walker ran about 100 yards and chased down Roosevelt Williams as he was about to dance into the end zone at the end of the first half. Green Bay still appeared on its way to another defeat when nose tackle Rod Walker snatched the ball from center Olin Kreutz just as he was snapping it to quarterback Jim Miller. Rod Walker timed the snap perfectly, grabbed the ball and pulled it back to his chest, covering up all in one fluid motion. "I had a friend who did it all the time in high school," Walker said. Defensive coordinator Ed Donatell saw something similar in peewee football; some teammates said they saw it in high school, but nobody could remember it happening in college. And never in the pros. The Packers then drove 90 yards — with Fisher accounting for half of them — and went ahead for the first time on Ryan Longwell's 27- yard field goal that made it 16-14. On a cold, windy day at Lambeau Field, the Packers improved to 33-0 at home when the temperature is 34 or below.

He also reached another milestone, jumping ahead of Dan Fouts to No. 5 on the career passing yards list with a total of 43,089. Favre completed 21 of 30 passes for 179 yards. Green ran for two TDs — one an early 60-yarder. When the Bears got within eight points in the final quarter, Favre put it away with a pair of TD passes, a 9-yarder to Javon Walker with 8:51 remaining and a 1-yarder to Bubba Franks with 4:21 left. Favre also connected with William Henderson on a 14-yard scoring pass in the first half and now has 47 career TD passes against the Bears — his most against any team. - Includes MNF pre-game, commercials, halftime and ESPN Sports Center after the game (quality 9)

(12-07-03) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - Mike McKenzie, burned early for a 61-yard score, returned his second interception of the day 90 yards for a touchdown. The Packers were clinging to a 19-14 lead when McKenzie stepped in front of receiver Dez White and picked off Kordell Stewart's pass at his 10-yard line and ran it all the way back. Packers RB Ahman Green ran 30 times for 80 yards. He needed 92 to break Jim Taylor's 41-yearold single-season rushing record, the oldest team rushing mark in the NFL. Jerry Azumah returned a kickoff for an 88-yard score for the Bears, who took a quick 14-0 lead but they turned the ball over five times. - Includes commercials and halftime (Quality 8.5)

 

2004

(09-19-04) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - Lovie Smith said he knew how to beat the Packers and his defense proved him right - Mike Brown's 95-yard fumble return for a touchdown sparked the Bears to only the third win over their longtime rivals in their last 21 meetings. It was Brown's fifth defensive score, a team record, and the second-longest fumble return in Bears history, surpassed only by team founder George Halas' 98-yard return in 1923. When Lovie Smith was hired as Bears coach on Jan. 15, he declared his top priority was knocking off the Packers — and that he knew just how to do it. The last two times he'd faced Green Bay was as the St. Louis Rams' defensive coordinator, and the Packers committed a combined 10 turnovers in those games.

(01-02-05) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Brett Favre and the Packers warmed up for the playoffs. Favre played the first quarter and one series in the second, going 9-of-13 for 196 yards and two touchdowns as the Packers beat the Bears for the 21st time in the last 26 meetings — including 11 straight on the road. Favre also went over 4,000 yards passing in a season for the fourth time in his career and reached 30 TD passes for an eighth time. Led by Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila's three sacks, Green Bay trapped Chad Hutchinson nine times.

 

2005

(12-04-05) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Charles Tillman returned one interception of Brett Favre 95 yards to set up a field goal, and Nathan Vasher carried a fourth-quarter pick 45 yards for a clinching touchdown as the Bears ended Green Bay’s domination at Soldier Field. On a day when their offense relied on four field goals by Robbie Gould, Chicago prevented Favre from throwing a TD pass against them - he’d done so in an NFL-record 26 straight games. The Bears (9-3) got their first home victory against the Packers since 1993 and extended their winning streak to eight - heir longest since the 1985 Super Bowl team started 12-0. Favre finished 31-of-58 for 277 yards for the Packers (2-10). - Includes halftime and Locker room live post-game (Quality 9.5)

(12-25-05) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - With an aggressive defense and solid running game, the Chicago Bears already were shaping up as a contender. Now they've discovered the forward pass. Starting his first game of the season, QB Rex Grossman added a new dimension to the Bears' offense as Chicago clinched the NFC North title and a first-round playoff bye with a 24-17 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. It wasn't easy. Grossman watched helplessly as Brett Favre tried to rally the Packers one more time. Favre's 56-yard completion to Donald Driver put the Packers at the Bears 35 with less than a minute remaining, but a spike and consecutive sacks left him only with time for a fourthdown heave that was picked off by Chris Harris as time expired. Grossman's statistics - 11-of-23 for 166 yards - hardly qualify as gaudy. But his deep passes, a threat the Bears didn't have under rookie QB Kyle Orton, kept the Packers defense on its heels. Meanwhile, too many of Favre's passes are falling into the wrong hands. He threw four interceptions - including, one that was returned 10 yards for a touchdown by LB Lance Briggs to put the Bears ahead 24-7 in the third quarter. Favre finished 30-of-51 for 317 yards with no touchdowns, He has thrown 28 interceptions this season, surpassing his previous career high of 24 in 1993. The Bears swept the Packers for the first time since 1991 - Includes Fox pre-game show, halftime, Fox Post-game, Locker room live post-game, and Inside the Packer pre-game (Quality 9.5)

2006

(09-10-06) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - Brett Favre is back. The Chicago Bears did their best to make sure nobody noticed. The Bears delivered the first shutout of Favre's 16-year career on Sunday, beating the Packers. For the Bears, shutting out Favre who has a 21-8 career record against the Bears took away some of the sting of their 29-21 playoff loss to Carolina in January. Favre, who deliberated for several months before deciding to return to the Packers this season, spent much of the first half on the sideline as quarterback Rex Grossman led Chicago on several long drives. Grossman found wide receiver Bernard Berrian for a 49-yard touchdown pass on the opening drive. It was the Bears' only offensive touchdown of the day, but Chicago continued to move the ball well enough to keep the ball largely out of Favre's hands. And when Favre was in the game, he mostly handed off until it was too late. Favre threw only five passes in the first half, completing all five for only 70 yards. The Packers opened up the offense in the second half, but Favre couldn't find the end zone and threw interceptions to Charles Tillman and Danieal Manning in the fourth quarter. Favre, who threw a career-worst 29 interceptions last season, finished 15-of-29 for 170 yards. Grossman was 18-of-26 for 262 yards as he ran his career record to 3-0 at Lambeau Field. On the Bears' sixth play from scrimmage, Grossman heaved a deep pass to Berrian, who caught it in stride and turned it into a 49-yard touchdown. It was the first time the Packers were shut out since a 10-0 victory by the Bears on Oct. 17, 1991, a streak of 233 games. It was the fourth-longest such streak in league history and second-longest active streak. It was the Bears' first shutout since a 24-0 victory at Detroit on Dec. 30, 2001.

(12-31-06) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - If, indeed, this was his last game, Brett Favre went out in style. The rocket-like passes that defined his career were on full display, zooming between helpless defenders and into receivers' hands. And when it was over, his voice cracked. Tears flowed. Is this really it, though? "If this is the last game, I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome," Favre said after the Packers closed out the season with a 26-7 victory against the Bears. Favre had his way, Rex Grossman looked lost, and the Bears bore little resemblance to a No. 1 playoff seed. Favre showed he still has some plenty left in that powerful right arm, passing for 285 yards to lead the Packers. But he tearfully hinted that he's seriously considering retirement, as he did in the last offseason. "If this is my last game, I want to remember it," Favre said, his voice cracking and tears streaming from his eyes. "It's tough. I love these guys. I love this game. What a great way to go out against a great football team. I couldn't ask for a better way to get out." Favre said he would discuss retirement with his family and make his announcement soon, "probably within the next couple of weeks." For now, the only certainty is he's scheduled for ankle surgery Jan. 1 in Green Bay. The three-time MVP completed 21 of 42 passes with a touchdown and interception. He had 209 yards in the first half alone as the Packers grabbed a 23-0 lead, and he moved into a tie with Dan Marino for second place on the victories list with 147. Favre needs one more to tie John Elway. Favre was in vintage form, but the inconsistent Grossman showed his bad side. He was 2-for-12 with three interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns and a zero passer rating in the first half and did not come out for the second. It was the first time a quarterback recorded three interceptions and two completions since New Orleans' Richard Todd in 1984. And the debate over whether he or Brian Griese should start for the Bears (13-3) is back on, even if coach Lovie Smith said he won't make a change. The Packers were all but eliminated from the postseason when the New York Giants beat Washington on Dec. 30. And their final hopes were dashed before the kickoff. Still, they took it to a Chicago team that has home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and was trying to become only the fourth team to go undefeated in conference play since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. - added September, 2007

2007

(10-07-07) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - The Packers lose there first game of the season against a reeling Bears team that needed a win. The Packers would pretty much dominate the first half, but you wouldn't tell by the score board. Rookie WR James Jones would have 2 costly fumbles, on almost identical slant receptions. Favre would finish 29-for-40 for 322 yards with one touchdown and two INTs; completing 19 of 22 passes in the first half - added January, 2008

(12-22-08) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - OT - Robbie Gould's 38-yard field goal with 11:28 left in overtime lifted Chicago, keeping the Bears in the thick of the NFC North race. With the win, Chicago moved into a tie with Minnesota for first place in the division. Matt Forte ran for 73 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries for the Bears, who have won three in a row and two consecutive in overtime.

The Bears blocked a 38-yard field goal with 18 seconds left in the fourth quarter to send the game to overtime, in which Chicago took the ball first. Orton connected with Olsen for 17 yards to midfield, and on the play a horse-collar tackle penalty on Green Bay put the Bears at the Packers' 35-yard line. Forte ran twice before catching the ball and running for a 14-yard gain. Forte ran twice more to put the Bears in a 3rd-and-10 situation, as Gould came on and booted the winning kick through the uprights. - Includes Samual Jackson intro to game, halftime, and ESPN Sportscenter post-game

 

2009

(09-13-09) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - After seven of the Packers' 10 losses in 2008 came by four points or less, Aaron Rodgers made sure history wouldn't repeat itself, throwing a 50-yard go-ahead TD strike to Greg Jennings with 1:11 remaining to spoil Jay Cutler's debut with his new team. Cutler, who orchestrated seven game-winning fourth-quarter drives in three seasons with the Broncos before being traded to Chicago in the offseason, couldn't add an eighth. His next play from scrimmage turned out to be his fourth interception of the contest -- a new career-high. The big story for the Packers was their new-look 3-4 defense under new coordinator Dom Capers. Capers' group kept Cutler to under 50 percent on his pass attempts -- 17-for-36 -- and held Matt Forte to 55 yards on 25 carries. - Added March, 2011

(12-13-09) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Ryan Grant ran for 137 yards and a pair of touchdowns, leading the Packers to their fifth straight win and a season sweep of the Bears. In the 179th meeting of this storied rivalry, it was the Packers who solidified their playoff hopes with their first road win in this series since 2006. Aaron Rodgers completed 16-of-24 passes for 180 yards, and Jermichael Finley caught five passes for 70 yards in the win. Charles Woodson added his eighth interception of the season to tie his career- high. Jay Cutler threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns on 23-of-36 efficiency but was also picked off twice for the Bears, who have lost five of six -- with the lone win coming against the lowly Rams. Cutler now has 22 interceptions, which is the most by a Bears quarterback since 1949. Matt Forte was held to 51 yards on 12 carries, and Johnny Knox caught five passes for 83 yards and a score. The Bears scored 14 straight points to take a one-point lead early in the third quarter, but the Packers' defense came up with a crucial turnover in the opening moments of the fourth to set up the go-ahead score. On 3rd-and-5 from the Chicago 32, Cutler threw a pass up the left sideline that was grabbed by Green Bay's Nick Collins, who took it back to the 11-yard line. Three plays later, Grant punched it into the end zone from one yard away, and Rodgers threw a two-point conversion pass to Greg Jennings for a 21-14 lead with 12:39 to play. - Includes NFC Playbook pregame, FOX Pregame, halftime, FOX Postgame, Monday QB postgame, Pack Attack (Spencer Havner guest), Mike McCarthy Show (Atari Bigby guest), Inside Lambeau (Josh Sitton guest), Inside the Huddle w/ Donald Driver (Brad Jones guest) - 3 DVDs - (Quality 9) - Added March, 2011

 

2010

(09-27-10) Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Robbie Gould booted a 19-yard field goal with four seconds remaining in the game and the Bears took advantage of 18 Green Bay penalties, a franchise record, to edge the Packers. Devin Hester returned a punt 62 yards for a score and Gould kicked two field goals in the final four minutes, the final one coming after a Green Bay turnover. Aaron Rodgers completed a 12-yard pass to James Jones, but the linebacker tandem of Lance Briggs and Brian Urlacher caused a fumble near the sideline. Tim Jennings pounced on the ball, and the Packers challenged the call, but replays showed Jennings stayed in bounds, giving Chicago the ball at the Green Bay 46. Jay Cutler threw a 21-yard pass over the middle to tight end Greg Olsen. Two plays later, Cutler's pass was picked off by Nick Collins, but Morgan Burnett was called for pass interference. The penalty set up the Bears at the nine, and on fourth down, Gould's kick kept the Bears unbeaten. A penatly on the ensuing kickoff set a Green Bay franchise record. Cutler finished 16-of-27 for 221 yards with a touchdown and an interception, while Rodgers ended 34-of-45 for 316 yards, also with a score and a pick. Rodgers also ran for a score, but the Packers, who were penalized 152 yards, suffered their first defeat. - Added March, 2011

(01-02-11) Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers - A win and the Packers are in the playoffs, but they must beat the Bears. The Bears are already guarenteed the number #2 spot in the playoffs, but Lovie Smith still plays all of his starters for the entire game. Most say Smith was trying to knock the Packers out of the playoffs as they know how danagerous the team is and didn't want them to get in the playoffs for the fear of having to play them again. Game turns out to be a defensive battle with the Packers holding a 10-3 edge as the Bears drive down the field in the final moments of the game. Nick Collins would give the Bears their dagger though with an interception at the Packers own 10 yard line with 13 seconds remaining in the game. Packers move on and set up the rematch to come. - Includes halftime (Quality 9) - Added March, 2011
