The NFL gets Week 2 underway tonight with the Chicago Bears traveling to Lambeau Field to play the Green Bay Packers. This will be the 185th all time meeting between the two teams, the most in NFL history. The Bears lead the all time series 91-85-6, although the Packers have won six of the last eight meetings.

The Bears come into the game tonight off a Week 1 win over Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler took advantage of having former Denver Broncos teammate, and former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall playing for the Bears. The two combined for 119 yards with a touchdown on nine receptions from Marshall. Overall, Cutler was 21-of-35, for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.

The Bears running attack found the end zone three times, with Matt Forte scoring one, and Michael Bush tallying the other two. Chicago cruised to a 41-21 victory over the Colts.

Meanwhile, Green Bay is looking to avoid dropping to 0-2 after losing to the San Francisco 49ers 30-22 last week. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers racked up 303 passing yards on 30-for-44 passing with two touchdowns and one interceptions.

Both teams are coming into tonight struggling with injuries. The Bears have tight end Kyle Adams (shoulder) and cornerback Charles Tillman (shin) are both questionable, while linebacker Brian Urlacher (knee) is listed as probable. For the Packers, linebacker Terrell Manning is out with a concussion, while cornerback Davon House (shoulder), wide receiver Greg Jennings (groin), and running back James Starks (toe) are all doubtful. The team also has linebacker Jamari Lattimore (ankle) and defensive end C.J. Wilson (groin) listed as questionable.

The game tonight will be on NFL Network, with kickoff at 8:20pm Eastern. Make sure you come back by the site and join in the live thread we will have up on the site.
