The NFL has announced that the Packers vs Bears game will be flexed to 3:15pm CT Sunday. This game will be nationally televised on FOX.
The Friday before the final regular-season game has been the final practice the last three seasons. But that wasn’t the case Friday in the Walter Payton Center as the Bears prepared for Sunday’s game at Lambeau Field and the postseason that will follow.
The Bears are assured of at least a No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs, but quarterback Jay Cutler says he is preparing to perform as usual in Sunday’s regular-season finale at Green Bay.
“I expect to be playing the whole game. That’s how I am preparing at this point,” Cutler said Wednesday at Halas Hall.
The Minnesota Vikings upset the Eagles 24-14 Tuesday night, securing the Bears’ slot with a guaranteed first-round bye.
“It helps us. Why wouldn’t I be happy about it?” Cutler said.
The Bears have a long shot at the first seed, pending the outcomes of the Falcons-Panthers game and the Saints-Buccaneers game. Regardless, Cutler says the Bears will play to win against their NFC North rivals.
“You probably could take a poll in this room right now and how many people would have picked Minnesota over Philly? So anything can happen in this league,” Cutler said. “We know that. I am sure Atlanta and New Orleans are preparing like it’s the Super Bowl. We just have to play and whatever happens, happens.”
Sunday’s game means everything to the Packers’ (9-6) playoff hopes.
“Lovie (Smith) said … we’re going to be playing, we’re going to be going and we’re going to be full-go on Sunday. So that’s what we expect,” Cutler said. “Hopefully we can continue to be playing at the level we’re playing.”
The Bears (11-4) will be seeking to sweep their NFC North schedule with a win at Green Bay. The Bears were the last team to sweep the division in 1987, when it was the NFC Central.
“I don’t think anyone has ever done it since they re-grouped everything, so that’s definitely in the back of our minds,” Cutler said. “We want to win the ball game. We don’t want to take a step back as a team or as an offense.”
