The Green Bay Packers will be led once again by Aaron Rodgers as they take on the Chicago Bears in a winner-take-all week 17 NFL football game to conclude the regular season. Two quarterbacks coming off injuries face off when we watch Packers vs Bears online free live streaming on Fox.
A few days ago the Green Bay Packers announced that Aaron Rodgers would return after sitting out seven consecutive games after breaking his collar bone. It was the greatest Christmas present the Green Bay organization and its fans could receive considering their game against the Bears on the road would crown the winner NFC North champ and be the season finale for the loser.
The Packers (7-8-1) were almost eliminated last week when the Pittsburgh Steelers knocked them off 38-31. Instead, the Bears got blown out by the Eagles on Sunday Night football in an early Christmas present that kept the Packers very much in the hunt for a playoff berth. Green Bay has won the division two years in a row and were really starting to gel when Rodgers went down with the tough injury to recover from.
Before Rodgers was hurt, he had thrown 15 touchdown passes to only four interceptions. His replacements including Matt Flynn have through eight touchdown passes and been intercepted 10 times. The difference is huge and probably represents a couple potential wins that were lost, including last week’s to the Steelers. Watch Bears vs Packers online streaming free live to see if Rodgers is rusty when he returns after sitting out for two months.
The Bears are no stranger to their franchise quarterback returning after Jay Cutler sat out two stints this season with various ailments. Cutler is now back and tasked with leading the Bears into the playoffs after the bad blow out on national television a week ago. Cutler was only able to generate 257 yards of offense in that game, a season low including all the games that Cutler did not play in.
Unfortunately for Bears fans, Cutler has a career 1-8 record playing against the Packers and lost the NFC title game to a Rodgers-led squad three years ago. Also worrisome is the Bears defense has been atrocious against the run and gives up 161.5 yards per game, worst in the league by over 25 yards. The Eagles torched them for nearly 300 yards on the ground so expect the Packers to pound the ball and let Rodgers slowly work his way into the passing game.
