The NFC championship game is upon us! It’s the Packers and Bears who will meet on Sunday, and guess what folks? You can see the Green Bay vs Chicago live feed via live stream right here!
Once again the Bears are on their home turf, and what’s the weather going to be like on Sunday? A chance of snow and temps more than likely in the low 20’s around kickoff. While we’re at it, we might as well throw in some wind, right Mother Nature?
The visiting Packers are no stranger to playing in frigid weather, but the wind? That may pose a bit of a problem for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He’s played in a couple December games at Soldier Field in the past and his completion percentage for both was in the 60 percent range. We’ll see how he fares.
Speaking of home turf, many players are complaining about the condition of the surface at Soldier Field. Greg Jennings, wide receiver for Green Bay, described it as ‘probably the worst in the league,’ also adding that it would ‘play a huge, huge role in the game’.
Even the Bears’ Brian Urlacher has been quoted as saying, ‘You can count on slipping at least four or five times a game.’
While the field reportedly was resodded right before last weekend’s game against Seattle, you add freezing temps to the mix, certainly that doesn’t help.
I know you’ve got some questions about the game and we’ve got answers! When is the game? Sunday, January 23rd, 2011. What time does it start? 3:00 PM EST. What channel can I watch it on TV? It will be televised on FOX, so whip out your handy dandy TV guide to see what channel that is in your area. If you’re stuck at work and don’t have access to a TV, no worries, below we’ve got the Packers, Bears live feed! Live streaming rocks, eh?
Might we see some celebrity girlfriends in attendance on Sunday? Bears QB Jay Cutler has been romancing reality star Kristin Cavallari and just recently sources have claimed that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is dating Gossip Girl Jessica Szohr. Let’s hope those boys are focused for the big game!
Who are you rooting for? Who’s your pick to go to the Super Bowl? This one will probably be a close one –a video preview for Sunday’s game is below.
