Report: Packers to host rival Bears on Thanksgiving night

Tuesday April 21st, 2015

The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will play on Thanksgiving night, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

The Packers and Bears are set to renew one of the NFL's most storied rivalries in prime-time. Demovsky reported that this would be Green Bay's first home game on Thanksgiving since 1923. 

Last season, Green Bay went 12-4 before falling to Seattle in the conference finals. Chicago went 5-11, firing coach Marc Trestman and hiring John Fox in the off-season.

Demovsky speculated that Packers legend Brett Favre might be honored before the game.

The entire NFL schedule will be released on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.
