MILWAUKEE - Sunday's Packers-Bears showdown in Chicago is only the 2nd time they've played in the playoffs, but these teams have more history of ending each other's seasons.
Among the 180 times these teams have faced off in the regular season, there have been three instances that one of these teams have ended the championship hopes of the other.
In 1968, the year after Vince Lombardi stopped coaching the Packers, the Bears had a chance to win the NFL's Central Division entering the season's final week.
But on Dec. 15, 1968, the Packers beat them at Wrigley Field, 28-27, ending the Bears' playoff hopes.
The Bears also did it to the Packers in 1932 with a 9-0 defeat of Green Bay on Dec. 11 of that year in Chicago.
