GREEN BAY, Wis. – Only once over the last 41 seasons have the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears both finished the season with losing records. That was 2017, when Aaron Rodgers missed half the season with a broken collarbone and the Packers went 7-9.

The teams seem destined to finish below .500 this season. Heading into Sunday’s game at Soldier Field, the Packers are 4-8 and the Bears are 3-9.

Quarterbacks will take center stage. For Green Bay, Rodgers suffered injured ribs last week in addition to the broken thumb sustained on Oct. 9. For Chicago, Justin Fields was inactive last week with an injured left shoulder.

In 28 career games against Chicago, Rodgers is 23-5 with 63 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Over that same span, Chicago’s quarterbacks have combined for 31 touchdowns vs. 44 interceptions.

In Bears history, Mitchell Trubisky is fifth with 64 career touchdown passes. Rodgers needs one touchdown vs. Chicago to match that number and four to tie Jim McMahon’s career total of 67.

At SI Sportsbook, Green Bay is +25000 to win the Super Bowl. With the Packers staring at elimination, that’s down sharply from +8000 from a week ago. With the uncertainty at quarterback, FanDuel has taken the Packers off the board for win total (it was 6.5 last week) and yes/no on playoffs (no was -800 last week).

At FanDuel, the injured Rodgers no longer is listed in the MVP race. He started the season at +1000 but was +42000 before losing to the Eagles. The Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes is the favorite at -140 and Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is second at +350. With six touchdowns the last three weeks, Christian Watson has rocketed up the Offensive Rookie of the Year board to +1000. He was +1600 last week. Those are the fifth-shortest odds; Seattle running back Kenneth Walker is the big favorite at -200.
