2011: Packers beat Bears

8. Jan. 23, 2011: Packers 21, Bears 14. The Bears had home-field advantage as they faced their archrivals in the NFC championship game but wound up with a painful loss and an injured quarterback. Jay Cutler suffered a knee injury and was unable to perform in the second half. Backup Todd Collins could not get the job done, so third-stringer Caleb Hanie was summoned. He managed to keep it close, but hulking defensive lineman B.J. Raji intercepted a Hanie pass and returned it for an easy score. Cutler's inability to play in the second half was fodder for sports talk shows and social media for months.
