    The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers wrapped up their regular seasons with a hard fought game on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, the Bears eventually coming out winners 21-20, finishing the season as NFC North Champions with a 10-6 overall record, while the Packers finished 3rd in the division at 6-10.

    The game was an ugly affair from start to finish because of the heavy snow and wind, Green Bay scoring first on an Al Harris pick 6 and eventually going into halftime leading 13-7 after adding a pair of field goals while the Bears could only manage a single TD, on a post route to 5th string WR Rashied Davis.

    The biggest play of the game came early in the third quarter, as Brian Urlacher sacked Aaron Rodgers, knocking the ball loose which lead to Lance Briggs recovering the ball in the endzone to give the Bears their first lead, 14-13. Green Bay weren't going away however, Rodgers hitting his TE Jermichael Finley from 57 yards out to make it 20-14 heading into the last quarter.

    The game would be won when Johnny Knox broke loose on a deep streak and hauled the pass in to score from 64 yards, giving the final score of 21-20. The Packers had a chance to win late but Mason Crosby missed a short field goal, allowing the Bears to hold on for their 10th win of the season.

    Jermichael was man of the match, catching 9 passes for 181 yards and the Packers only offensive TD. For the Bears, nobody really stood out, and they were honestly lucky to escape with a win in this one.

    I just realised about the topic title, should obviously be Bears 21 Packers 20, not Vikings.
