TOP STORYLINE
Packers quarterback Brett Hundley will start in place of injured superstar Aaron Rodgers, who sustained a broken right collarbone Oct. 15 in the first quarter of a loss to the Vikings. Rodgers has won 13 of the last 14 games he's started and finished against the Bears, and he has thrown for 21 touchdowns and just one interception in his last eight games versus Chicago.

HISTORY LESSON
Green Bay's 35-14 win over the Bears Sept. 28 at Lambeau Field gave the Packers the lead in the all-time series between the longtime rivals for the first time since 1933. The Bears led 81-56 after the first matchup in 1992, but the Packers have won 39 of 52 meetings since that point to take a 95-94-4 edge.

NUMBERS GAME
Entering Week 10 the Bears rank 29th in offense (6th rushing and 32nd passing) and 8th in defense (13th against the run and 11th versus the pass). The Packers rank 23rd in offense (tied for 21st in rushing and 21st passing) and 25th in defense (23rd against the run and 20th versus the pass).

GAMEDAY AT SOLDIER FIELD
The Bears have designated Sunday's contest against the Packers as their "Salute to Service" game. USO/Boeing representative and Medal of Honor recipient Captain Florent Groberg will give an opening speech at the 50-yard line. The national anthem will be sung by U.S. Air Force and Afghanistan War veteran Mark. J. Lundquist, followed by a flyover.

At halftime, the USO will hold a Commissioning and Medal Ceremony. The Bears will also recognize Vietnam War veteran and Medal of Honor recipient Specialist Five James McCloughan as the Bears/Boeing Military Salute honoree during the third quarter. On May 13-15, 1969, Specialist McCloughan voluntarily risked his life on nine separate occasions to rescue and treat wounded soldiers during 48 hours of close-combat fighting against enemy forces. He is credited with saving the lives of 10 American soldiers. Specialist McCloughan was awarded the Medal of Honor at a White House ceremony on July 31, 2017.
