With loss Thursday, Bears will lose lead in Packers series for first time since 1933

There’s a lot riding on Thursday night’s Bears vs. Packers game at Lambeau Field.

Not only would a loss all but eliminate the Bears from NFC North contention, but it would mean that Chicago would lose its series lead against the Packers for the first time since the series was at 11-11-4 in 1933.

Lately, the Bears’ series lead over Green Bay is about all Chicago has over the Packers. Chicago leads the all-time series 92-91-6, but has won just two of the past 14 and 12 of the past 47 games against Green Bay. That’s not a lot to be thankful about.

The Bears dominated the series early on and strengthened their lead by winning 13 of 15 games from 1985 through 1992.

But since then, quarterback play has been the difference. Soon-to-be Hall-of-Famer Brett Favre came to Green Bay in 1992 and was followed by another all-time great in Aaron Rodgers.

The Bears, meanwhile, have had 20 different quarterbacks start at least three games during that same time span.
