Defense Propels Packers Into Super Bowl After Bears Lose Jay Cutler
The big game is all set! Who will win?? Will any Vikings fans be rooting for the Packers in two weeks??
There was one Monster of the Midway in the NFC championship game and his name was Aaron Rodgers.
He wasn't even at his best and, still, he was better than the first, the second and the third quarterback used in vain by the Chicago Bears against their bitter rivals.
Rodgers ran for a score and made a TD-saving tackle in leading the Green Bay Packers into the Super Bowl with a bone-jarring 21-14 victory Sunday over Chicago. "It's an incredible feeling," Rodgers said. "I'm at a loss for words." Rodgers played well enough to keep the Bears off balance all afternoon, Green Bay punter Tim Masthay kept Devin Hester under wraps and the Packers' superb defense took care of the rest in knocking the Bears out of the playoffs. It was the 182nd meeting in the league's most historic feud, and the stakes had never been bigger.
