Pregame story

 

Tonight is a most meaningful and unusual Packers Gameday. Lambeau Field will be not only the center of the sports universe, but potentially the center of the American political universe.

The nation's eyes will be on Lambeau Field for the 195th meeting between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears. It comes amidst the national debate over protests during the national anthem, with the Packers players pushing for a unified response from both themselves and the 80,000 fans in attendance to lock arms in what the team deems "UNI-versity." 

The game is also an anniversary of sorts...it comes almost 60 years to the day after the Packers and Bears played the first-ever game at Lambeau Field.

Yes, they'll also be wearing the Color Rush white.

The Packers' health will be key, with 12 players on the injury list this week - with particular issues at tackle - and just three days to prepare for Chicago.

"It's a challenge everybody in the league has to go through. Everybody plays on Thursday Night Football," Coach Mike McCarthy told WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Morning News." 

"Some of the older guys, it takes a little longer to recover. Both teams played a hot game on Sunday, so you take that into account. I promise you, when we run out on the field Thursday night, we'll be ready to go."

How will the Packers handle their health issue at offensive tackle, with injury to David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga and Kyle Murphy now out for the year?

"It's been definitely a different injury situation for our football team," said McCarthy on Wednesday. "We're working through it, hopefully get some good news today from our different tackles."

As Voice of the Packers Wayne Larrivee explained on his podcast and blog, a win over the Chicago Bears is critical to their hopes for home field advantage this year in the NFC playoffs - a major piece of the puzzle for teams who have Super Bowl aspirations.

Packers Nation will be watching and listening. The nation will be watching. For many reasons.

Stay tuned.
