(WNFL) - The Green Bay Packers are a 10-and-a-half-point favorite over the Chicago Bears tonight at Lambeau Field. The Packers have won four straight, while the Bears expect to be more energized after coming off their bye week. A Chicago victory would create a three-way tie atop the N-F-C North Division with the Packers, Bears, and Detroit all at 5-and-3. The Packers lead the North at the moment by a half-game over the Lions and a game over the Bears. Both Green Bay and Chicago have injury problems. Veteran Josh McCown will start for the Bears as Jay Cutler continues to nurse a groin injury. Bears' linebacker Lance Briggs is also out. The Chicago defense is not the powerhouse of recent years. They rank 31st in the N-F-L in sack percentage, with a total of nine sacks. The Bears were 11th in that department a year ago. The Packers' receiving offense has bent due to injuries to James Jones, Randall Cobb, and Jermichael Finley. But the Green Bay running game has stepped up with a solid rookie year from Eddie Lacy and James Starks' return last week from a knee injury. Jones remains questionable for tonight.
