Biggest NFL Rivalry | Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers

What is the biggest NFL rivalry? The Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers sure could take the cake on that question. This rivalry has been going on ever since 1921. It is a rivalry between two of the most storied franchises in the NFL. George Halas and the Chicago Bears (well, Decatur Staleys at first) were there from the beginning. Curly Lambeau and his Green Bay Packers started playing during the 2nd season of the NFL. The teams have been playing each other ever since, a total of 198 games. Tomorrow night marks the 199th time these two juggernaut franchises will square off against each other. This episode takes a look back at the storied rivalry that is, the longest standing rivalry in the NFL. So strap on your seatbelts, and let’s get this baby up to 88mph.
