    Okay, here are my 5 keys to the game.

    #1 Special Teams. This is how the Packers can lose the game. If the Bears average start is behind their 40 and they don't get a big return, the Packers will win. There's a very good chance this won't happen, however, which will make the game tough.

    #2. Pressure. Whoever brings more pressure to the QB in this game is probably going home the winner. Cutler can have really awful games when he's getting knocked around and while Rodgers is probably better dealing with pressure, it will still make life difficult for him all night long. The Packers have the advantage on paper with a better overall pressure D (Raji, Matthews, Jenkins being the main 3 and I find that to be better, pass-blitz wise, then the Bears.)

    #3 Turnovers. Both teams are very playmaking and will get takeaways. Rodgers is one of the safest QBs in the league with the ball, Cutler is one of the least, but we are prone to fumbles which the Bears specialize at creating. That said, the Packers have had tremendous success against Cutler.

    #4 Ground game. Both teams are lackluster here but you could give the edge to either team depending on what you value more. If you look at the season of work, Forte and Taylor are superior. If you're looking more recently, Starks and Kuhn are. Either way, it'll be interesting to see if either team tries to establish the running game or go straight to their aerial attacks.

    #5. Passing attack. The first thing to mention is that if Rodgers plays like he did last week, the Packers will win. Period. The Bears DBs are physical and they play soft but they can be terrorized on those 15-20 yard throws that Rodgers loves. Cutler is going to try to attack deep, probably against Shields, and get Olsen involved as TEs terrorize us.

    BRING. IT. ON.

      Sorry Brent, the fans still don't forgive you nor are they buying what you're saying

        Funny because just a couple weeks ago he said this.
        Peppers said Favre said, "Go beat the Packers in a couple of weeks.’”
        **** off Brett.

        EDIT: To clarify that was talking about the final regular season game.

            Well written, but I have to say it's:
            #1- Turnovers
            #2- Referees "mood" (see week 3)
            #3- Special teams Coverage Units
            #4- Our OL performance
            #5- Crosby if a clutch kick is needed to win it (who here could stand to bank on that? The thought of it even typing this gives me ****** butterflies)

              I'd rather go for it on 4th and 12 from their 25 with 20 seconds left then kick a field goal. Crosby WILL miss if it comes down to that.

                The thought if it scares me to death. I hate kickers.
                Kickers turn guys like Jim Kelly into losers, and Tom Brady into Joe Montana in the eyes of many people.

                The more I am seeing and hearing about Soldier Field, the more pissed I am getting. Their field is basically painted mud & sand. It's crap.

                I think we're going to need a big day from the RBs Starks or Jackson or Nance. Plus their defense is good. We scored 45 in week 16 and were red hot, but then in week 17 they held us to 10. Just because we scored 48 on Atlanta this week doesn't mean they don't bog us down again a week later.

                  Their field is atrocious, has been for years. I'm not worrying about it though because both teams have to deal with it. Bears players have already been vocal about how crappy the surface is, and how it slows them down, to

                  Pack WR's just need to do a better job of holding onto the damn ball. Can't let the Bears get one of their patented strip fumbles. IF you sense a defender coming near you, put 2 hands on the ball, quit dancing around and just take what was given to you.

                    I don't think Earl Bennett played in the Week 17 game, and honestly that might have played a little bit of a role in the Bears' offensive struggles. Bennett is probably their best route runner and having him this week, especially on third down, will provide Cutler with a better option than trying force balls to Rashied Davis or Johnny Knox.

                    I think the defense will have their hands full with trying to account for Forte, Bennett, Olsen and the two speed guys.

                      If the Bears want to win this game, they will have to run the ball. This defense is built to defend the pass; One of the best pass rush in the league along with one of the best secondaries in the league. Not a lot of teams can say that they have 3 pro bowl quality ballhawks (Collins, Tramon and Woodson) on their D and the nickel Shields can make plays also. If Green Bay gets an early lead, Martz will forget the running game pretty quick and make them one dimensional, which is exactly what the Packers want.

                        ESPECIALLY against Cutler, whom we have absolutely terrorized as a Bear. Cutler's passer rating in 4 games as a Bear against the Packers? 61 with 9 interceptions. His highest being in the low 80s. And that's not including a number of interceptions called back because of borderline, at best, penalties.

                          This game is going to be another ugly, grind-it-out slugfest, like the game 3 weeks ago.

                          The weather, field, and crowd all favor Shicago more than the Packers.
                          In Atlanta, the weather (none) and field (fast) actually favored us, as Andrew Brandt of the National Football Post pointed out today.

                          Still, we win if we don't turn the ball over. However, when passes are tipped at the line of scrimmage against Shicago, they seem to magically magnetically find a Bear.

                          Just like James Jones fumble's along the sideline against Shicago always seem to stop bouncing to the sideline, and then get recovered by a Bear.

                          Again, the Packers will not blowout this Bears team, and I advise everyone to get their wager in now on Shicago +3.5. Bodog has the Packers favored by 3.5.

                          Take the 3.5, and hope Crosby kicks a game-winning FG on the final play to win 20-17! In overtime!

                          How would our pulses be if that all happened! I can't take it anymore!

                            Gameday temps are scheduled to be a high of 21 degrees, partly cloudy with a 10 percent chance of snow.
                            Remember, Shicago isn’t called the Windy City for nothing.

                            Rodgers 3 career games in Shicago :

                            2010 (September) – 316 yards, 75.6 completion percentage, 1 touchdown, 1 interception

                            2009 (December) – 180 yards, 66.7 completion percentage, 0 touchdowns, 0 interceptions

                            2008 (December) – 260 yards, 61.5 completion percentage, 2 touchdowns, 1 interception

                                It's worked so far, 2-for-2 in the playoffs. And I didn't do it last year at AZ.
                                I feel like I'm taking one for the team.... sure, a little superstitious but I'll gladly do it 2 more times! It's not like I'm betting a grand or more though :O
