It has been a long season, but we've made it to the final week. And it finishes just how it began, with the Green Bay Packers taking on the Chicago Bears.
The Packers have a chance to make the playoffs in their first season with Jordan Love and with the youngest roster in the NFL. That would be quite an achievement just a year after moving on from a Hall of Fame quarterback.
Green Bay ruled out running back AJ Dillon and safety Rudy Ford earlier this week.
The Packers haven't lost to the Bears under Matt LaFleur, winning all nine games. However, Chicago presents a tough challenge in Week 18, having won four of its past five games, limiting its opponents to only 15.2 points per game in that stretch.
But the prize is huge for the Packers. Win, and they will clinch the No. 6 or 7 seed in the NFC.
Packers vs. Bears inactives Week 18
- WR Christian Watson
- RB AJ Dillon
- S Rudy Ford
- LB Isaiah McDuffie
- WR Grant DuBose
- LB Brenton Cox Jr.
- T Caleb Jones
- WR Darnell Mooney
- RB D'Onta Foreman
- DB Greg Stroman Jr.
- OL Ja'Tyre Carter
- QB Tyson Bagent
- DB Quindell Johnson
- DB Jaylon Johnson
This will almost certainly be Green Bay's final game at Lambeau Field this season, regardless of how far they go in the playoffs.
The Packers can't play at home again until the NFC Championship Game, and even then, it's highly unlikely. Green Bay would need to clinch the No. 6 seed and then host the No. 7-seeded Los Angeles Rams in the NFC title game.
In all likelihood, this will be the Packers' final home game of the season. We just hope it isn't their final game in any stadium. Hopefully, they can beat the Bears and move on to a playoff date against the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, or Philadelphia Eagles next week.
