By Nate LoCascio The NFL regular season will kick off Sunday night for the Packers and Bears at Lambeau Field. The 7:20 PM kickoff will signal the beginning of the 197th game between the two storied franchises. Green Bay has a slight edge in the NFL’s oldest rivalry. The Packers are (96-94-6) in the series, which includes two playoff games (1-1). The division rivals square off in a prime-time contest for the 13th consecutive season, tied with Dallas-New York Giants for the longest current streak.
It is the first time since 2009 that Green Bay has opened the season at Lambeau Field against Chicago. The Packers have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Bears at Lambeau Field, including a 35-14 victory last season in Week 4.
