Bears Packers Greatest Moments
A History Making Brawl – During a Bears–Packers game on November 23, 1924, the first ever ejection of players during an NFL game took place. The Packers’ Tillie Voss and Bears’ Frank Hanny were ejected from the game before the end of the first half due to trash talking and some thrown punches.
December 18, 2016 & the Windy City – One of the coldest football games in the league’s history was played on this day at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois. At halftime, both teams were tied at 10-10. In the third quarter, the Packers added 17 points and it was 27-10 at the end of the third. In the fourth quarter, the Bears surged and brought their NFC North rivals within 3 points and in striking distance of the Green Bay end zone. However, the Packers defense held its ground and the Bears had to settle with a field goal. When the Packers offense lined up, QB Aaron Rodgers completed a 60-yard pass to Jordy Nelson, which led to a Packers field goal as the clock ran out. It was also Rodgers’ longest completion of the season. The Packers won the game 30-27.
