Packers-Bears to kickoff NFL's 100th season

March 25, 2019 - 3:04 pm

The NFL will kickoff its 100th season on Sept. 5, 2019. The matchup?

The Thursday evening spectacle will be the 199th meeting between the two franchises. The Packers hold an edge in the head-to-head, leading the all-time series 97-95-6. The teams are 1-1 head-to-head in the playoffs. Since meeting in the 2011 NFC Championship game (which the Packers won 21-14), the Packers have owned the rivalry going 13-3 in 16 meetings. 

Last season, the two teams split their head-to-heads. The Packers and Aaron Rodgers came back to beat the Bears 24-23 in Week 1 last season -- the NFL's "Never Say Never" Moment of 2018. In Week 15, the Bears won 24-17 at Soldier Field.
