When the Bears (5-5) travel to face the NFC North-leading arch rival Packers (7-3) in Green Bay on “Sunday Night Football” (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC) in the third-to-last game of Week 12, they will be trying to revive their fading division title chances.
The Bears are coming off a bye with another QB change, with a healthy Mitchell Trubisky replacing an injured Nick Foles. The Packers are coming off a tough marathon overtime loss at the Colts last week that pushed their lead down to two games.
