The Green Bay Packers take on the Chicago Bears this weekend in a division rivalry game.
It's the oldest rivalry in football, and both teams go all out when they face each other. The teams have rich history, play solid defense, and are explosive on offense and special teams as well.
Game time is 3:15 p.m. CT on Sunday afternoon.
Charlie Peprah is taking over for the injured Nick Collins.
Losing Pro Bowl safety Nick Collins will hurt the Green Bay Packers, but after winning the Super Bowl with 16 players on injured reserve last season, there is no doubt that they could do it again.
Filling in for Collins will be Charlie Peprah. Peprah filled in for Morgan Burnett when he went down last year.
Peprah had 63 tackles, two interceptions and five pass defenses in 2010.
For the rest of the season, Peprah has big shoes to fill, and teams will more than likely start to pass down the middle of the field more.
Peprah and Burnett have a big task ahead of themselves, but Mike McCarthy and Dom Capers believe in them.
Charles Woodson is big time playmaker in the Packers secondary.
Charles Woodson can create and make plays in the Green Bay Packers secondary. Woodson defends the pass, goes after quarterbacks and does anything to help Green Bay win.
Woodson will now have to make even more big plays with the loss of Nick Collins due to injury.
Despite getting older, Woodson can still make plays. He showed that last week against Carolina.
Woodson had two interceptions, five tackles and two pass defenses.
The former defensive player of the year needs to motivate this defense to stop giving up so many big plays, as the team has averaged 400 yards per game to opponents the first two games of the season.
Sam Shields is filling in for Tramon Williams.
Cornerbacks Sam Shields and Jarrett Bush filled in last week for the injured Tramon Williams, and they might have to again this week as Williams hasn't practiced due to his bruised shoulder.
Shields and Bush did a solid job last week against Carolina. Shields only contributed one tackle—Bush had seven of them—and a pass defense.
Shields needs to contribute like he did a year ago in his rookie season, and make Jay Cutler remember the NFC Championship game where Shields picked him off.
Maybe he can do that again on Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers is the leader of the Pack.
Aaron Rodgers is the leader and catalyst of the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers has been nearly perfect this season.
He has thrown for 620 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions. Rodgers is even completing 70 percent of his passes, and has an impressive 126.4 passer rating.
Rodgers has so many favorite receivers, and the running game is even helping him out. Now, the defense just needs to hold their own so the Packers can put away games.
B.J. Raji anchors the run defense for the Packers.
B.J. Raji, or "the Freezer," is anchoring the Green Bay Packers defensive line this year along with Ryan Pickett.
Raji has had a decent start to the season. He had five tackles and a sack last week after only two tackles in Week 1 against New Orleans.
Through two games, the Packers run defense has allowed just 152 yards and only one touchdown. This week, they will look to shut down Matt Forte.
Maybe Raji can do his dance again again the Bears. We all want to see that agan, right?
