As storied as their rivalry is, the Bears and Packers have played very few meaningful games. When the two teams meet on Sunday in the NFC Championship, it will be only their second playoff meeting. The first came on Dec. 14, 1941, just seven days after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Both teams had 10-1 records and split during the regular season, so they needed to play a one-game playoff to determine the winner of the Western Division. A Wrigley Field capacity crowd of more than 48,000 watched the Bears pound the Packers 33-14. Two weeks later, the Bears defeated the New York Giants 37-9 for the NFL Title before 13,000 at Wrigley Field. Take a look at 10 other meaningful Bears-Packers games in our gallery:
