    1941-The Last Bears/Packers Playoff Game

    article from a Chicago Paper about the game.

    Stout Steve Owen and sundry other officials of the New York Giants are back on Broadway today, but unless they’re marvelous actors, they’re not fooling anybody. One look at the long faces Stout Steve and his gang carried out of Wrigley Field yesterday afternoon will be all the Giants need to warn them of what is in store for them on the same sod next Sunday afternoon.
    That the time the Giants, as champions of the East, meet the Bears in the annual playoff for the championship of the National Football League, which is also the championship of all football as it is played in these more than ever United States. Stout Steve, as coach of the Giants, was one of 43,425 who shivered through a frigid hour at Wrigley Field yesterday as the Bears won the right to meet the New Yorkers. But whereas the fans were shivering from the cold, Coach Owen’s shakes were induced by what he saw in the second quarter.
    In those 15 minutes the Bears put on a perfect exhibition of offensive football, crashing over 24 points to send them hurtling to a 33-14 triumph over the Green Bay Packers in their playoff for the Western championship.

    ‘Sudden Death’ for Packers

    The game was to have featured football’s first “sudden death” overtime in case of a tie, but as one press box wag phrased it, the sudden death came in that second quarter and came to Green Bay. For great as the Bears were in annihilating the Redskins, 73-0, in the title playoff a year ago, they were even better yesterday in that second period.

    Not a fan of either team, but can't wait for this game. For those who are fans or who live in or near Chicago or Green Bay, is this rivalry comparable to Yankees vs Red Sox? Lakers vs Celtics?

    Either way, I'd love to be at Soldier Field this weekend to see the most meaningful game ever played between these two teams...at least in my lifetime.
