It Could Come To This...
BEARS 10 SEATTLE 7
GREEN BAY 10 ATLANTA 7
When was the last time we faced Green Bay (if ever) in an NFC championship game?
Also : Before the AFC/NFC Conferences...did we ever play Green Bay in a match where we won and went on to play in a pre-superbowl game for all the marbles?
All of the above is before my time so any answers would be helpful! Thanks!
The last time Bears and packers met in the playoffs was in 1941
That meeting was in the Western divisional Championship. Bears won 33-14 and went on to beat the Giants to win the NFL Championship 37-9
Exactly, the last time The Bears And Packers met in the playoffs, the Bears won by 19 points, and that was before we made adjustments and the bye.

Just to be a buzzkill, every other time both teams have been in the playoffs at the same time, they both lost...
Every other time? What about the times in between? You just gotta believe...
