No one is quite sure where the legend of Jay Cutler, bad Bears’ quarterback, began.
Probably, it was in Green Bay.
Cutler’s nightmares must feature Green Bay. Cutler is 1-13 against the Packers over his career, and he’s 0-4 in Lambeau Field with three touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Now, on Thursday Night Football, Cutler will try it again.
On the other hand, the Packers’ Aaron Rogers is 13-3 against the Bears and completed 74 percent of his passes in the last 12 games. All of it gives Green Bay enough weapons to tie the all-time series for the first time since the days of FDR.
It is one of the NFL’s oldest rivalries, going back to George Halas and Vince Lombardi, Dick Butkus and Ray Nitschke, Doug Atkins and Willie Davis.
This year, Green Bay is 7-3 in the division, tied with Minnesota. Chicago is 4-6.
