NFC Championship game

Notes from our researcher, Steve Triolet

The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers have been in the playoffs together only four times, and this year marks the first time they have met in the playoffs since 1941. Seventy years ago, Chicago beat Green Bay 33-14.

In this seasons finale, the Bears could have knocked the Packers out of the NFC Wild Card spot all together by winning. However, the Packers finished with a 10-3 win and clinched a spot in the playoffs in a game that apparently did not matter to Chicago who had already clinched the NFC North.

Now, the Bears and Packers meet on Sunday for a chance to represent the NFC in Super Bowl XLV.
