Bears Vs. Packers Is NFL Network's Highest Rated Thursday Night Football Game

The Chicago Bears fans that watched this week's Thursday Night Football game on the NFL Network likely won't want to remember it, but news broke Friday morning that those fans were part of a record-breaking audience.

Thursday Night Football hasn't been around very long, of course, but this week's game against the Green Bay Packers set the record for the best ratings the NFL Network's game of the week has ever received.

Masonson, who works in the NFL's communications department, later tweeted that the previous record-holder was the 2011 Thanksgiving game between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. With the extended slate of Thursday night games, however, it would seem this week's record will likely be broken sooner rather than later.

Bears Vs. Packers: Aaron Rodgers Praises Chicago Defense

High praise from a quarterback as good as Aaron Rodgers is a big deal, but the Chicago Bears defense has heard this kind of thing before. Rodgers had some kind things to say about the Bears Tuesday.

"They've got a great defense, do a good job of stripping the ball, making plays, creating turnovers and forcing you into long-yardage situations."

Rodgers, writes the Chicago Sun-Times, mentioned veteran linebackers Lance Briggs and Brian Urlacher, the two players every team is aware of going into a game against Chicago.

The Bears D could be a little more formidable if the Packers don't have wide receiver Greg Jennings in the lineup, which seems likely.

Having made such compliments, Rodgers is 7-2 in his career against the Bears and has a 102.9 career quarterback rating against them. The Packers have won six of the last seven meetings.

The Bears, who defeated Indianapolis in Week 1, could have a hobbled Urlacher and defensive back Charles Tillman.

Greg Jennings Injury: Packers Receiver Unlikely To Play This Week

It appears unlikely that Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings will be able to play on Thursday against theChicago Bears as he nurses a nagging groin injury, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Jennings did appear in last Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers, but the Packers are working on a shorter schedule this week.

As Schefter notes, Jennings is a tough player, but it's too early in the season to potentially risk his health:

Green Bay knows it's a long season and it's going to need to count on Jennings. It's more important to prep him for the final 14 than the upcoming one if there are any concerns about that groin injury right now -- and there are.

The injury doesn't sound especially serious, but with the Packers having only a few days between last Sunday's game against San Francisco and Thursday's game against Chicago, it appears that they're erring on the side of caution with one of their key playmakers. Last week, Jennings caught five passes for 34 yards against the 49ers.
