Line: Packers by 4

Players to watch: Which slumping quarterback will get his game together? The Packers' Brett Favre has thrown four TD passes vs. six interceptions. The Bears' Kordell Stewart has two TD passes vs. three interceptions.

The buzz: Once the party atmosphere of opening a new stadium wears off, the Bears will have to deal with reality. Their rushing defense is last in the league and Packers RB Ahman Green is averaging 4.5 yards a carry. - Chicago Tribune
