Briggs: 'Everything is on the line'

(MCT) — Aaron Rodgers has made a habit of beating the Bears.

That doesn’t mean the Bears have to like it; and it certainly doesn’t mean the trend has to continue when their NFC North rivals invade Soldier Field Sunday for a possible division-clinching victory.

“This game means the world right now,” Bears linebacker Lance Briggs said Thursday. “We have to win this game. So many reasons go into it. But it’s the Packers, it’s the playoffs (ramifications). Everything is on the line. So we have to go and leave it all out there.”

The Packers (9-4) have beaten the Bears (8-5) the last five times. Rodgers is 8-2 as a starter against the Bears, with a passer rating of 96.8.

“He’s one of the best quarterbacks in the game,” Briggs said. “What he is able to do with not only his feet and how accurately he can throw on the run … it always poses a problem for any team. It always means that no matter what the score is, the Packers have an opportunity of coming back and being in that game.”
