NFL Football - Green Bay Packers (+3, 36½) at Chicago Bears 8:15 PM EST
The Packers' Sunday game in Chicago has been moved to the Football Night in America Feature on NBC. The Bears have clinched home field throughout the NFC playoffs and could be resting starters so they are just a 3-point favorite. It could be a dramatic scene, with Brett Favre potentially playing his last game with the playoffs on the line against a team he has dominated throughout his career.
In all, Green Bay has won 21 of 29 games vs. Chicago since Mike Holmgren and Favre took over the Packers in 1992. However, the Bears have won the last three, including a 26-0 decisive manhandling at Lambeau Field in week one. Favre has thrown zero TD's and 8 INT's in the last three vs. Chicago. Depending on what happened Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, Green Bay could be playing for the final NFC Wildcard spot and will need Favre at his best.
Unfortunately, the final Football Night in America spotlight game comes down to a difficult handicapping spot in which one of the teams could be resting starters. Coach Lovie Smith of Chicago hasn't exactly been forthcoming about his plans for utilizing his regular players this week. The StatFox Game Estimator is giving the Pack a 303-302 edge in projected yardage, but fading a 13-2 team on its home field in its final game is never a great idea and 85% of the public agrees according to the sportsbook.com Betting Trends.
