Two storied teams to meet for spot in Super Bowl
George Halas and Vince Lombardi would be proud.
Two of the NFL's most storied franchises are taking their rivalry to a whole new level next weekend when the Chicago Bears host the Green Bay Packers for a spot in the Super Bowl.
The Bears cruised into the NFC championship game Sunday, beating up the Seattle Seahawks 35-24 at snowy Soldier Field. The night before, Green Bay advanced with a stunning 48-21 rout of top-seeded Atlanta.
This will be the 182nd meeting in their 90-year-old series, but perhaps the biggest one yet with a trip to Dallas on the line.
The AFC title game includes Pittsburgh, which rallied Saturday for a 31-24 win over Baltimore. The Steelers will get either New England or the New York Jets, meeting Sunday in the last divisional game.
