UPBrett Favre claims that he's done for good, again. If Walter Camp had known a sub.500 team would be in the playoffs, the father of football would have invented tiddlywinks instead.

It was not an afternoon for the faint of heart.

There they were: two heavyweights standing toetotoe steelersfootballprostore.com/steelers-ziggy-hood-jersey-c-36.html and slugging it out for 59 minutes and 50 seconds.

At that point, Aaron Rodgers dropped to one knee. This was not a bad thing.

Thus the Green Bay Packers punched their ticket to the National Football League playoffs with a majority decision over the hated, but not feared, Chicago Bears.

Although they got one of the last invitations to the bash, nobody was complaining.

"We've had a different road we traveled this year, and we've met every challenge," Packer coach Mike McCarthy said following the donnybrook. "We're at 10 wins and we're one of six teams in the NFC. This is an exciting day for the organization.

"That's the type of game you should expect when Chicago and Green Bay get together and we didn't disappoint tonight."

While the Pittsburgh tough guy expected that type of game, nobody else did.

The Monsters of the Midway had the No. 2 spot in the www.steelersfootballprostore.com/steelers-antonio-brown-jersey-c-31.html NFC all wrapped up.

They had nothing to gain. All signs pointed toward a steady diet of Todd Collins, whose passer rating would surely be lower than the wind chill.

But laughable Lovie Smith indicated otherwise. He said his charges would be charged up. The starters would start. Of course, a lot of people took this to mean Jay Cutler, Brian Urlacher and Devin Hester would be ordering Lambeau Steaks at Curly's Pub at around 4:30.

As it turned out, Cutler was served up as hors d'oeuvres for Erik Walden.

Talk about a noname defense. Walden, a late addition to McCarthy's merry men who probably doesn't even get recognized at Shopko, finished with 11 tackles and two sacks. Said veteran Packer observer Carl Spackler, "Cinderella story. Came out of nowhere."

It's a good thing, too, because the Packers were going nowhere fast on offense. Rodgers was the leading rusher with 21 yards. A guy jogging through quicksand can usually rush for 22.

The passing game sputtered like your car when the mercury falls to zero.

Greg Jennings, of all people, dropped a sure touchdown pass on a day when it only was going to take one TD pass to settle the issue. Who did he think he was? James Jones?

Despite a dismal offensive output, the Packers found themselves tied with the Bears at 33 late in the third quarter. Frozen fans were wondering why they hadn't bet the under as they chiseled away at their barley, malt and hops.

Chicago was looking at a third and 15 at their own 46. Cutler flipped the ball to Chester Taylor, who proceeded to get 16 yards.
