Updated score: Packers 27, Bears 17

The Chicago Bears/Green Bay Packers rivalry has been a good one. These two teams have been the most consistent in the NFC North over the past six years, and their rendezvous in the NFC championship game last year only served to heighten the intensity of their animosity toward one another. 

This game features some great storylines.

Which Bears defense will we get? Will they be the dominant group that shut down the Atlanta Falcons in their season opener or will they be the inept crew that couldn't stop the New Orleans Saints last week?

The Bears offensive line looked especially putrid last week, as Cutler was constantly harassed by the Saints defense. Offensive coordinator Mike Martz never really gave their running game much of a chance to get going, which led to a predictable offensive game plan.

Can the Packers flip the switch on their offense to be even more effective this game? The Packers can't complain with a 2-0 record to start the season, but they haven't been as efficient running the football as they'd like and they struggled to shake free from the sub-par Carolina Panthers last week.

In addition, the Packers pass defense has been wretched. The big-armed Cutler can find open receivers downfield when he's given time. Can the Packers secondary clamp down on Roy Williams, Johnny Knox and Devin Hester today?


-It looks like the injury report is fairly light, with Bears running back Marion Barber as the biggest name listed.

-The game is at 4:15pm EST on Fox from Soldier Field in Chicago. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are on the call for the game.

Buckle up for what should be an exciting game!
