Bears Packers Rivalry: Greatest Chicago-Green Bay Games Of All Time

Posted: Updated:

On Sunday, the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers play for the NFC championship. The winner will be awarded the George Halas Trophy, and head to the Super Bowl for a chance to play for the Vince Lombardi trophy and a world championship.

Aside from being namesakes for prizes, Halas and Lombardi are two of the legendary figures in professional football's longest-running rivalry -- Halas the Bears' coach for four decades, and Lombardi the Packers legend who presided over the most powerful team in football history.

Chicago and Green Bay have been playing each other around twice a season since the 1920s, and the rivalry is a tight one: the Bears lead the all-time series 92-83, with six ties. But before Sunday, the two squads have only met once in the post-season -- a 1941 rout by the Bears just a few days after the Pearl Harbor bombings.

We've gathered highlights from the seven greatest Bears-Packers games in the history of the rivalry. Vote on which game is the most legendary. Did we miss a classic? Let us know about it in the comments.
