Green Bay to host Bears in Monday night matchup

Posted by Duke Bobber on November 4, 2013 – 4:00 pm

131104-lambeau-600

- The Packers (5-2) will host the Bears (4-3) tonight, the first meeting between the teams on Monday Night Football in Green Bay since 1997 and the third ever (also 1986) at Lambeau Field.

- The Packers extended their winning streak to four games with a 44-31 victory at Minnesota in Week 8, the most points ever scored by Green Bay at the Metrodome. Green Bay has now had a winning streak of four or more games each of the past five seasons (2009-13), the only NFL team to do so over that span.

- Tonight will mark game No. 187 in the NFL’s oldest rivalry. The Bears hold a 92-88-6 edge in the series (includes two playoff games, 1-1).

- It will be a matchup between two of the top three scoring teams in the NFL, with Chicago checking in at No. 2 (30.4) and Green Bay at No. 3 (30.3) through Week 8.

- The Packers have won six straight and eight of the last nine meetings against the Bears (including playoffs). Green Bay has swept the season series in three of the last four seasons (2009, 2011-12). Green Bay’s current six-game winning streak against Chicago is its longest since a seven-game streak from 2000-03.

- Seven of the last 10 meetings between the Packers and Bears (including postseason) have been decided by eight points or less.

- This is the 21st consecutive season (1993-2013) that Green Bay is appearing on Monday Night Football, the second-longest streak in the league behind only Denver’s 22-year span (1992-2013). It is the Packers’ lone MNF appearance this season.

- The game against Chicago is the second of back-to-back NFC North contests for Green Bay. The Packers are in the midst of a six-game stretch that sees them play four divisional games.

- Green Bay enters tonight’s game having won 14 of its last 15 regular-season games against NFC North foes. The Packers’ .933 winning percentage in the division over that span ranks No. 1 in the NFL.

- When the Packers take the field against the Bears tonight, they will be looking to extend their home divisional winning streak to 11 games.

- Green Bay’s 10-game winning streak against NFC North foes is tied for the second longest (2000-02) in franchise history since the league went to a divisional format in 1967. The Packers won 18 straight games against NFC Central opponents from 1994-98.

- Since 2006, Green Bay has a 34-10 overall record (.773) in NFC North games (No. 2 in the NFL) and a 19-3 mark (.864) at home (No. 2).

- The Packers have won 10 consecutive regular-season games at home and 23 of their last 24 (.958) at Lambeau Field.

 

RIVALRY UNDER THE LIGHTS
- For the Packers and the Bears, this marks the eighth consecutive season (2006-13) that the NFC North rivals have met in a prime-time game. It is the first Monday Night Football meeting between the clubs since 2010.

- It will be the first time since 1997 that the clubs have met on MNF at Lambeau Field, with the last four meetings at Chicago (2002-03, 2008, 2010). The 2002 game was played in Champaign, Ill.

- This will be the 11th time that Green Bay and Chicago have met on Monday Night Football, which is the most against any one opponent for the Packers. It is tied for No. 5 as far as the most meetings in Monday Night Football history (since 1970). The Packers and Bears have split (5-5) the previous 10 meetings on MNF.

- Since 2006, the Packers and Bears have met four times on Sunday night (2006-07, 2009, 2011), twice on MNF (2008, 2010) and once on Thursday night (2012).

- This will be the 18th time that the division rivals have met in a prime-time contest. Green Bay holds a 10-7 edge in those games (5-5 on MNF, 4-1 on Sunday night, 1-1 on Thursday night).

- Since 2009, the Packers are 9-3 overall (.750) in prime-time games.

 

WEARING THE STRIPES
- Tonight’s officiating crew includes referee Walt Anderson (66), umpire Jeff Rice (44), head linesman Steve Stelljes (22), line judge Byron Boston (18), field judge Buddy Horton (82), side judge Michael Banks (72) and back judge Billy Smith (2).
