Best bet on the Tube

 

Facing Aaron Rodgers and the streaking Packers on the road without your starting quarterback and top defender just seems downright unfair. That’s exactly the predicament facing the Chicago Bears (4-3) tonight at Lambeau Field (ESPN, 5:25) in the 187th meeting in the NFL’s oldest rivalry. A torn groin muscle for Jay Cutler and small fracture in the left shoulder for Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs have the Bears undermanned. Josh McCown is taking over for Cutler against the Packers (5-2), leaving the league’s second-highest scoring offense (30.4 points per game) in the hands of a career backup. –AP
