Aaron Rodgers set a Packers record for most completions in a game with 39 on a day where the Packers' offense had to depend on the passing game for its productivity. With no healthy running back with experience, the Packers also ran the ball using wide receivers to gain more than 400 yards of offense.

Pregame story

Sunday's Packers loss to Dallas could be perceived as insult. Tonight is more like injury.

As they prepare for the Chicago Bears tonight at Lambeau Field, news is coming out that running back Eddie Lacy is headed to injured reserve.

That means two running backs who have never played a down for Green Bay, Don Jackson and Knile Davis, will carry most of the running load for Green Bay.

The shoulders of Aaron Rodgers, already carrying the troubles of early-season struggles, now have that much more to bear.

It also means the defense may be asked to carry more of the load for victory - coming off a game where they were gashed by the Dallas Cowboys.

The good news - the Chicago Bears are not the Dallas Cowboys. However, they do boast the 7th most prolific yard-gaining offense in football with Brian Hoyer - not Jay Cutler - at the helm.

Tonight may be a crossroads moment for the Packers on a night that, on paper, they should win. But we all know paper doesn't win football games. Performance does.

Will they find a way to overcome and win over their archrival for 96 years?

Stay tuned.
