Bears vs. Packers: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Division title implications are heavy in Sunday's installment of the Bears-Packers rivalry.

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The NFC North title can be decided on Sunday as the Chicago Bears host the Green Bay Packers, but the Bears would rather have the race stay open.

The Bears (8-5) trail the Packers (9-4) by one game with three remaining, and have already lost to Green Bay once this season. A Packers win clinches the division for Green Bay, while a Bears victory will make the race last through the season's final week.

Chicago has lost four of its last five and is riding a five-game losing streak to Green Bay. The Bears are one of the most disparate teams in the NFL, as the Jay Cutler-led offense ranks a paltry 28th, while the defense is fifth-best in the league. The Bears' defense holds opponents to just 314 yards per game.

Green Bay, meanwhile, has won seven of its last eight despite posting average numbers on both sides of the ball. Both its offense and its defense rank 17th in the league. Aaron Rodgers is completing 67% of his passes for 29 touchdowns and eight interceptions on the year.
