Bears begin to prepare for Packers

Back at Halas Hall Monday following their bye week, the Bears return to the practice field to begin preparing for Sunday night's road game against the rival Green Bay Packers.

The Bears (3-5) have lost four of their last five games since a 2-1 start and are in last place in the NFC North behind the Lions (6-2), Packers (5-3) and Vikings (4-5). Chicago will play five of its six division contests over the final eight weeks of the season.

Jay Cutler and the Bears will visit the Green Bay Packers Sunday night at Lambeau Field.
The Bears lead the all-time series with the Packers 93-90-6 but have lost 10 of 12 meetings since 2009. That includes a 38-17 defeat Sept. 28 in Chicago. The Bears led 17-14 late in the first half before the Packers scored the game's final 24 points for their fifth straight win at Soldier Field.

The Bears did not force a Green Bay punt in the game. The Packers scored five touchdowns and one field goal on their first six possessions before Willie Young blocked Mason Crosby's 38-yard field goal attempt on Green Bay's last drive.

Aaron Rodgers completed 22 of 28 passes for 302 yards with four touchdowns, no interceptions and a 151.2 passer rating that was the second best of his career. Rodgers has now won the last eight regular-season and playoff games he's started and finished against the Bears dating back to 2008, passing for 19 touchdowns and five interceptions.

ChicagoBears.com will provide all the latest news throughout the week from Halas Hall. Coach Marc Trestman will address the media Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Defensive end Jared Allen, defensive coordinator Mel Tucker and special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis will be available Wednesday, while Jay Cutler, Kyle Long and offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer will speak Thursday.
