Bears beat Packers, clinch NFC North

Getty Images

The Bears have gone from worst to worst to worst to worst to first.

After finishing in last place in the NFC North for four consecutive years, Chicago has clinched the division today with a win over Green Bay at Soldier Field. The Bears can now start getting ready for the playoffs.

The Bears’ defense had its way with Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback who has beaten them so many times through the years — and in Week One of this year. Today the Bears got their revenge on Rodgers, holding him in check, pressuring him often, and forcing him to throw just his second interception of the season with three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, a pick that sealed the Packers’ fate.

The loss moves the Packers’ playoff hopes from slim to none, and it firmly establishes the changing of the guard in the NFC North: Not only are the Bears on top this year, but the Bears’ key players are younger than the Packers’ key players. This looks like a rivalry that the Bears could get the better side of for many years to come.

But the Bears aren’t thinking that far in the future just yet. They’re thinking about January, when they’ll host at least one playoff game at Soldier Field, and they’ll be a tough team to beat.

  1. Another Packers loss. What else is new? It sure is fun to see this old Bears-Packers rivalry, though. 100 years and still in Green Bay, WI, how does that happen, lol? Now the Bears are on the rise while my Packers are on the decline. Especially Aaron. But that doesn’t matter to Aaron’s biggest fans. Aaron has even turned Bears fans into traitors. Like my friend frank booth. He can’t enjoy his Bears’ success. He’s a devoted Aaron fan. Anybody who watches football can see it. If you can’t, you don’t know football.

  2. This can’t be. The Packers have been super bowl favorites for the past 10 years and now have missed the playoffs two years in a row with the best QB to ever play the game.

  3. This looks like a rivalry that the Bears could get the better side of for many years to come.

    Yes, the Packers will be on the bottom of the North for years to come. That division is for the Bears, Lions, and Vikings to battle for the next few years.

  4. Congrats Bears for overcoming a couple of potential game losing calls by Nagy but even more so an officiating crew squarely in the Packers pockets. The Bears DL was literally held for seconds at a time on certain plays.

  5. I thought Rodgers said that he knows how to play in Chicago? Aaron cares too much about his interception record. Pack players too young, Rodgers has all the money. Congrats to the Bears! Maybe next year GB.

  6. Yes, the Packers will be on the bottom of the North for years to come. That division is for the Bears, Lions, and Vikings to battle for the next few years.

    Lions need to figure out how to get Stafford to get better first before they think about competing in the North.

    Congrats to the bears. The superior team. Best of luck in the playoffs.

    (See, Vikings fans? It is possible to lose without blaming the refs)
    ———
    Um…..just wait….you are the first packer to post.
    But if they officials call a good game, there’s nothing to complain about.

  8. I don’t get all of hate for the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay is by far the smallest city in the 4 professional sports leagues and they have some of the best fans out there.

  9. Love that a packer fan is talking smack when the vikes just put up 41 points and are still in decent shape to make the playoffs.. had the vikes blown it today, I would have been rooting for you bears fans. Let’s try to keep our rivarily civil, a word most packer fans have to google. Congrats on winning the north. That mack trade was definitely worth it.

  10. Congrats Bears. To the victors go the spoils so they can talk. To say anyone is going to dominate for years is hard to say. Many things change each year. Suggesting Rodgers is over the hill is nuts. I’ll bet my money on him rebounding. Bears d is legit but I don’t see them going to New Orleans and winning and watch out for Seattle

  11. As Mark Murphy built an amusement park around Lambeau Field, the team he was hired to run was drafting turds like Quentin Rollins and Vince Biegyl and Dean Lowry. That’s Murphy’s legacy: He built an amusement park and his team became a joke.

  13. Its not just Mack, they’ve drafted extremely well on that side of the ball and have 6-7 guys that are probowlers and wreak havoc. Its a changing of the guard in the North no doubt, defense wins. Congrats to the city of Chicago.

  14. Like McCarthy, Rodgers has gotten stale – and his performance year isn’t even up to the standards of the other 3 interception machines in the NFCN. If Rodgers was on the Bears, Lions or Vikings their records would be no better. That’s telling.

    Either the decline has started or the chip must grow. I hate to have to wait so long to get excited again for a real game, but it is what it is. The Pack stunk this year and I’m not too proud, stupid or naive to say otherwise.

    On to 2019….. I hope….

  15. Congratulations to the Bears, clearly the class of the division this year. When they rest their starters, they may even allow the Snowflakes to get into the playoffs. No one will be frightened seeing that group come to town.
    For the Pack, a quick rebuild and back next year. I hope they keep Pettine. With all the injuries on defense this year, he’s done a good job.

  16. Congrats to the Bears for a great game today and for their return. I love the haters blaming Rodgers for the L like that INT he “threw” wasn’t deflected off the receiver’s hands.

  17. Congratulations Bears fans. Your team tried to give the game away a couple times, but you still came out on top. I knew the Bears were the better team coming into this game, but I was still hoping the Packers could pull out the upset. Good luck in the playoffs. I may hate the Bears, but I respect the fans. Peace.

  18. Ted Thompson is in failing health back in his home state of Texas. The Green Bay media — which include Rob Demovsky, who writes one sentence stories, and Jason Wilde, who is Aaron Rodgers’ little Toady — couldn’t be bothered to look into a story about a former GM (still on payroll) who has appeared to be ill for the past several years and who was allowed to preside over three of the worst NFL drafts (2015-17) according to NFL.com.

    It took a former ‘scribe, Bob McGinn, who has been denied credentials by the Green Bay PR Dept, to report the Thompson news this week.

    And not a single Green Bay beat reporter has followed up.

  19. Says the Vikings fan whose team has never won a championship in 50 years

    I appoligize.. there’s allot of teams that haven’t won a championship.. my bad for sticking with my team through and through.. what a jerk I am

  20. Too bad the packers have so much of the cap tied up with one player. The only supporting cast they can afford are over-the-hill veterans or kids in their rookie contract. Sub-basement dwellers for as long as PrimaDonna12 is on the team.

    Et tu Brute? Beware the Cheese, my friends from Chi Town.

  22. I wouldn’t say “changing of the guard” after one, so far, solid year. Could be but hold your horses. Don’t remember anyone saying Miami was the next best afce team the one year they won the division years back.

  23. From a die hard Packer fan, Congratulations to the Bears, your team outplayed, outcoached, ours. The Bears have a better Defense if not the best in the NFL for several years. The offense is credible but not fearsome which works. Do what you can this year because highly unlikely that is repeates itsf next year. possible yes, just not likely. Even though there is a mountain of excuses from my packers this year I will just tip my hat to the Bears for being the NFC North Championship and wish them the best of luck
    Congrats

    What did you have to complain about? Was there a game changing call against the Packers?

    You’re getting used to losing to teams with winning records when Rodgers is starting at QB.

    It’s been over 2 years.

    Your grasp of the English language is breathtaking.

    ————————————————————

    What about the first two interceptions that were dropped? It is literally the most overrated stat in football. Many Interceptions are off of receivers hands. Much of the time it is in no way indicative of the quality of quarterback playing. And it certainly does not equate to how many
    wins your team will have! Right Aaron?

  28. I wonder who Erin is gonna blame now? Blamed his receivers already, already gotten his coach fired.

    Over rated, over hyped, over paid. Now, just simply over.

    How long did the Pack sign this stiff for?

  29. Saint Aaron Rodgers adds yet another Failed Comeback to his resume.

    Easily the worst “great QB” when it comes to performing when the game is on the line in NFL history, ranking 84th all-time in that critical stat.

    Oh, but Saint Aaron doesn’t throw picks! The Packers apologists say. But, you have to risk them when you are behind.

  30. Come this February when the offseason starts the Packer fans will again have the Packers as the team to beat in the NFC North as they have been saying all season. And just having a new coach will magically upgrade a garbage roster just like having a new GM was going to do it this year.

  31. I have nothing against the Bears but their fans ought to “thank” an imbecile named Jon Gruden for gifting them a future HOFer in Khalil Mack.

  32. Like I said before one thing Vikings and Bears fans alike we just can’t stand the packers and they’re fans! Congratulations to the new King of the North Bears hoping for a short reign Skol!

  33. As a Packers fan congrats to the Bears tip your cap. Now Packers brass be smart and sit Rodgers these last two games. Theyre eliminated. Philbin will want to start him because he’s trying to win the job. Remove him from that decision. Rodgers is visibly banged up. You get him seriously hurt and it could dramatically hurt your coaching search. See what you have in Kizer. Not saying you should tank but you have 2 first round picks (which should have been traded for Khalil Mack). Play your cards right get the right coach and they are a sleeper team in 2019.

  34. Good luck to the Bears in the playoffs. You clearly have the best defense in the NFL.

    Of course the Viking trash ignores their own team and comes over here instead, even though the outcome of this game ensures they won’t win the division. You had your once-in-a-decade chance last season, and maybe you will be relevant again in 9 or 10 years…

  35. Congrats to the Bears and Bears fans on the win and taking the NFCN — its been a great season. Admittedly, it is weird seeing the Pack as a non-factor this time of year two years running.

  36. Hahahahaha

    Vikings fans on here complaining about the refs in a game involving two other teams!

    But I’m your defense, it can’t be easy being a fan of the worst franchise in all of sports, so I kind of pity you guys.

  37. you have 2 first round picks (which should have been traded for Khalil Mack).
    >>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<
    Maybe you didn't see the news but the Packers DID offer those 2 picks. Oakland got a better offer from Chicago and they offered better money, $24 mil/yr avg.

  38. Isn’t it ironic – arguably the best player in the NFL costing so much in cap space that he makes his team one of the worst in the NFL, which, even more ironically reduces the value of the team’s “stock.”

    Enjoy the cellar.

  39. Congratulations to the Bears organization….a team with a bonafide NFL pedigree.

    A team that has 9 World Championships, a beautiful outdoor stadium where men play football and a 100 year history in the same city.

    Much respect for this organization. Now go represent the North in a real NFL city kind of way.

    Go Pack!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The greatest rivalry in all of sports is, always has been, and always will be, Packers vs Bears (or Bears vs Packers, depending on one’s point of view). Try as you might, it’s never going to be Packers vs Bears-and-Vikings (or Bears-and-Vikings vs Packers). There’s just no room for you in the equation.

    Like you should have learned the other day when you tried to insert yourself into the rivalry, as heated as it sometimes gets, there’s a mutual respect between the Bears fan base and the Packers fan base that goes waaay back. The two teams have been intertwined since day one, with each having literally saved the other from extinction at one point or another. It’s like a love/hate relationship between family members. This is why most of the Packers fan base would be perfectly happy to see the Bears win it all, now that the Pack is officially out of it. If it can’t be us, who better than them? Without them, we couldn’t even have this rivalry.

    That hasn’t been the case for a long time.

    It’s over 2 years since he beat a team with a winning record.

  43. As a Packer fan who lived in Hyde Park for years, I know how dedicated Bears fans are. Congrats on winning the North – represent us well in the playoffs. Knock the Vikings out in Week 17. See you next year. Da Bears!

    Rodgers will count less against the cap than Kirk Cousins next year. In 2020, Rodger’s cap hit will be $1.6M greater than Cousins’ cap hit. I’ll gladly cap an extra $1.6M for Rodgers over Cousins… as would all sane people.

    As always, just the actual facts.

  48. Congrats to the Bears!. I’d like to take this opportunity to officially apologize for my fellow Vikings fans on here. We’re not all trolls. Some of us appreciate good football and respect our opponents.

  49. Congrats to the Bears for winning the NFC North from this Packers fan. Good luck in the playoffs. Kick New England’s derriere if you get that far. At least you won’t have Sexy Rexy at QB this time.

  50. Congrats to Chicago and their fans. The Vikes will be back next year challenging you for that crown.

    The Packers are paying Rodgers over $80 MILLION in the first 12 months of his current deal, and he hasn’t beat a team with a winning record in over 2 years.

    Except he has. He beat Chicago in week 1, and they just won the division – or he beat Miami in November, when Miami entered play 5-4. Choose what you’d like. Move on to your next fascinating factoid please.

Years and years of yip-yapping about what your “dynasty” was going to do when the Pack finally faltered and what happened? The “lowly” (according to your yip-yapping) Bears have risen up and snatched the division while the long boat continues to sputter around in the same old circles… 84 million of them.

  54. It’s so cute how queenies distort facfs.

    “Packers haven’t beaten a team with a winning record.”

    At the time.

    But the Packers handed these 10-4 bears one of their losses

    Did the Vikings? Or…

    It’s ok. The Packers has a bad year.

  61. Last year when Rodgers got hurt, essentially eliminating the Packers from the playoffs, the cheese eating trolls in here practically disappeared until the offseason started. I expect nothing less this year. I never realized how fair the weather is in Green Bay until last year I guess.

    Rodgers is a 2 time regular season MVP and Super MVP While Cousins won 4 or 5 games against teams with a winning record?

    Enjoy your QB the next couple of seasons. Hopefully he is done throwing for under 30 yards in a half for your sanitys sake.

    1-7-1 in last nine games against the Vikings. Impressive.

  69. 12-8 overall, 4-4-1 in his last 9 games, actually, and was injured and out after throwing 4 passes in one of those losses when the score was 0-0. But why pay attention to facts when you can just make things up.

    Congrats bears and fans. The last time I really remember them being relivent was 1985 with the 46 defense and the “fridge” and Buddy Ryan. Oh ya there was some coach named Mike Ditla
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

    The Bears were quite relevant throughout the Lovie Smith era; they just never had a quarterback. After the Cutler trade they thought they finally had a QB and ended up letting Lovie go, thinking he was the problem, which started one of the great debacles of our time (Trestman et al).

    At one point in that debacle they hired Mike Martz as OC, which made things even worse. Martz wasn’t a bad OC, having had plenty of success elsewhere, but the fit was beyond horrendous. The Bears front office at the time took a team that had been built to run the ball and play defense (O-line full of road graders, etc), traded for a gunslinger QB (Cutler), and then tried to fix that mismatch with an OC whose offense required timing and absolute precision (Martz). It was crazy. Nothing matched. None of it worked together. I’m pretty sure the Bear fans here would agree, it was truly a “comedy of errors,” although it certainly wasn’t fun for them at the time.

  71. Congrats to the Bears! Been playing good, fundamental football all year. That defense is Elite. Trubistky is playing well but I still don’t know if he is a great QB yet. Most of his throws are to wide open receivers off of great gadget plays by the coach. What happens when the trickery doesn’t work on a particular team? Like the Rams last night? The offense is efficient because of brilliant play calling. I think if the Bears can get home field advantage (could happen with the Rams losing last night) they could be very dangerous in the playoffs. Winning at Soldier field is not an easy task for any team.

    Best of luck to you! If and when my Viking get eliminated I will be cheering for the Bears!

    Better than the Cheeseheads making it.

    But the Packers handed these 10-4 bears one of their losses

    Did the Vikings? Or…

    ————-

    You beat the Bears before they caught their stride. They weren’t playing winning football back than. Congrats! ….No…Also the Dolphins are not a good team so count it if you like. I don’t count it as a huge credit victory for the Vikings. The Packers and Vikings both have not done well against winning teams this year. But go ahead and count that cute lucky victory against the Bears before they started clicking…your still not going to the playoffs…so I guess I don’t care either way.

    Plus they move the goalpost to say “a team with a winning record at the time of the game” and they’re still wrong, since Rodgers beat the then 5-4 Dolphins earlier this year.

  74. @vikes4real,not quite sure where you were going when you said The Bears have never been there before.I just wanna know how long you have been watching football,because you sure dont know the history of the Bears,9 championships,2SUPERBOWLS(I know the Vikes have been to 4,but still havent won) The Bears have actually won a Super-Bowl,oh yeah,and arguably the greatest defense in football history,1985 So think before talk about something you know nothing about,I guess that is football.Or maybe your like 12 years old.

  75. The Bears won congratulations. They’ll lose to the Saints in New Orleans.

    BTW, enjoy it while it lasts because your fleeting victory will never be as sweet as the Packers beating the Bears in Soldier Field in the NFC Championship game then going on to win the SB.

    Say what you will, but I’m positive that fact will always sting DA’ Bears…
