The Bears enjoy the home field advantage, but the Packers are a runaway train with no intent of coming to a halt anywhere but Dallas in early February.
The Packers have held Chicago to 20 points in two games and have too much talent on defense to surrender any more than that on what should be a cold and blustery day in the Windy City.
On the other side, as well as the Green Bay defense is playing, Aaron Rodgers has been just as spectacular. He’s thrown for more than 540 yards, six scores and zero interceptions so far in the playoffs, and is rapidly fulfilling the many favorable prophecies prognosticators foretold prior to his taking over for Brett Favre.
Because of the game’s setting and the long-standing bitterness of this rivalry, the game will enter the fourth quarter still up for grabs, but Green Bay seizes control over the final 15 minutes and spends Sunday evening awaiting its Super Bowl opponent from the AFC.
Prediction: Green Bay, 28-13
