The Packers and Bears have played in the same conference or division since the NFL went to a conference format in 1933; they played in the NFL’s Western Conference from 1933 to 1970, and have been in the NFC North since 1970 (known as the NFC Central from 1970 to 2001). As such, they usually play each other twice every regular season.

Recent History Between – Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears

 

  • Bears 27, Packers 20 (November 4, 2013) – Heading into this Monday Night match-up at Lambeau Field, Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler was benched with a groin injury. Thus, Josh McCown, the backup quarterback of the Bears who had played in Lambeau against the Packers on Christmas Day in 2011, played in Cutler’s stead. In the first drive of the game, Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sacked by Shea McClellin, which fractured Rodgers’ left collarbone and sent him out of the game. McCown threw for 272 yards and two touchdowns, and no interceptions. Seneca Wallace, the backup quarterback for the Packers, threw for 114 yards and no touchdowns, with one interception. The Bears won the game 27-20 to end a six-game skid to the Packers and beat them for the first time in Lambeau Field since 2007. Aaron Rodgers would be out for 7 weeks, eventually returning in Week 17 against the Bears for the NFC North title.
  • Packers 33, Bears 28 (December 29, 2013) – In a game with the NFC North Championship and the No. 4 seed in the playoffs on the line, the Packers faced off against the Bears with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in his first start since their last meeting in early November, the game in which he was injured. The game was notable for a Rodgers fumble to touchdown that occurred when most players from both teams believed the play to be an incomplete pass. The game also showcased an offensive shootout in the second half, including Bears quarterback Jay Cutler throwing for two touchdowns. However, the Packers ended their last drive converting on 4th down three times, most notably in a long 4th and 8 completion to Randall Cobb for a touchdown that would win the game and deliver Green Bay its 3rd consecutive NFC North title. The loss meant the Bears missed the playoffs for a third straight year, while the Packers made their fifth consecutive trip to the playoffs.
  • Packers 55, Bears 14 (November 9, 2014) – Aaron Rodgers tied an NFL record with 6 touchdown passes in the first half in a blowout win for the Packers, the most lopsided win over the Bears for the Packers since 1962 and their highest point total in a game since 1945. The Packers scored more points in this game than in any other in the rivalry. Bears’ kickoff returner Chris Williams tied an NFL record with 10 kickoff returns in a game, one of which went for a 101-yard touchdown.
  • Bears 17, Packers 13 (November 26, 2015) – On the night of Brett Favre’s jersey retirement, the Bears met the Packers at Lambeau Field for a Thanksgiving match-up. With a 4-6 record and having lost to the Packers earlier in the year, Chicago entered the game as huge underdogs. While the Bears’ offense stalled in the first quarter, the Packers took a 7-point lead on a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Eddie Lacy. In the second quarter, the Bears scored two touchdowns, while the Packers settled for two field goals, making the score 14-13 at halftime. The Bears scored one more field goal in the fourth quarter while their defense pitched a second half shutout, including a goal line stand in the game’s final seconds. The game marked the first and only win for Jay Cutler as a Bears quarterback in Lambeau Field, as well as his first win against the Packers since 2010.
  • Packers 30, Bears 27 (December 18, 2016) – With Green Bay one game down in the all time head to head series, and needing a win to move within a game of the division lead, the Packers entered Soldier Field during one of the coldest Chicago Bears games on record. With both teams tied at halftime 10–10, Green Bay surged to a 27-10 advantage in the third quarter, before the Chicago Bears made a run of their own in the fourth quarter to bring them within 3 points, and in striking distance of the Green Bay end zone. Green Bay held the Bears to a field goal after a goal-line stand. During the Packers’ ensuing possession, quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed a 60-yard pass to Jordy Nelson which led to a Packers field goal as time expired.
  • Packers 35, Bears 14 (September 28, 2017) – The Packers took advantage of two early Bear turnovers, scoring two early touchdowns within 1 minute of game time in the first quarter. After a 47-minute delay due to lightning in the 2nd quarter, the Packers continued their dominance of the Bears, causing four total Bear turnovers and Aaron Rodgers throwing 4 touchdown passes in a 35-14 win. The win gave the Packers a 95-94-6 edge in the overall rivalry, the first time the Packers had the winning advantage in the rivalry since 1933. The game included a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit from Bears’ Danny Trevathan on Packers’ Davante Adams, which knocked Adams out and caused a small skirmish between the Bears and Packers players. Trevathan received a two-game suspension that was later reduced to one game after an appeal.
  • Packers 23, Bears 16 (November 12, 2017) – On a gray and rainy day at Soldier Field, the Green Bay Packers came to town without Aaron Rodgers, who had suffered a broken collarbone several weeks earlier. Thus, this was the first game in the rivalry since 1991 that didn’t have Rodgers or Brett Favre at the starting quarterback position. Led by back-up quarterback Brett Hundley, the Packers struck first with an 11 play, 70 yard drive, and a 40-yard field goal by Mason Crosby. The Bears answered with an 8 play, 53 yard drive, capped by a 45-yard Conor Barth field goal. In the second quarter, the Packers made it 10-3 when Ty Montgomery burst up the middle on a 37-yard run. With 8:09 left in the first half, Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky hit Benny Cunningham on a short screen pass that he turned upfield for 23 yards. Cunningham tried to score on the play but was ruled out of bounds at the 2-yard line. However, John Fox opted to challenge, believing it was a touchdown. Instead, officials said Cunningham lost control of the football before it made contact with the pylon, and referee Tony Corrente ruled the play a touchback and awarded the ball to Green Bay at the 20-yard line. Later on, Conor Barth made a 44-yard field goal to end the half at 10-6. In the third quarter, Mason Crosby hit a 40-yard field in the third quarter to make it 13-6 and added another 50 yarder at the beginning of the 4th quarter to make it 16-6. With 10:39 to go in the game, Mitchell Trubisky answered with a 46-yard pass to Josh Bellamy to make it 16-13. However, the Packers responded with an 8 play, 75 yard drive, capped by a 19-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams to make it 23-13. The Bears hit another field goal through Conor Barth to make it 23-16. Despite a botched field goal by the Packers that would have iced the game, the Bears were stopped on fourth down to end the game.
