With the Chicago Bears only a game behind the Green Bay Packers for the NFC North division lead, the old-time rivals meet for the 185th time in this week's Monday Night Football telecast.

The Packers are on four-game winning streak despite injuries to WR Randall Cobb, WR James Jones, and TE Jermichael Finley, with their most recent win coming against the hapless Minnesota Vikings. QB Aaron Rodgers completed 24-of-29 passes for 285 yards and connected with WR Jordy Nelson for two touchdowns, who caught 11 passes for 76 yards, in their 44-31 victory over Minnesota back in Week 8.

"Aaron's had a lot of challenges Monday through Saturday that don't show up on the stat sheet, just trying to get on the same page with younger players and trusting the game plan," said Packers head coach Mike McCarthy in regards to preparing for the week with new faces at the wide receiver position midway through the season.

The Bears, coming off a bye week, are also dealing with major injury issues, going into Monday night's game without starting QB Jay Cutler under center, who is expected to miss a month with a torn muscle in his groin while getting sacked by Washington's defense in Week 7.

Back-up QB Josh McCown will start for the Bears, who went 14-for-20 for 204 yards and one touchdown, after stepping in for Cutler against Washington, in Chicago's 45-41 loss prior to their bye week.

"Josh has been in the league for a long time," said Bears offensive tackle Jermon Bushrod. "He's played a lot of games. He has a lot of experience. So we're excited about the opportunity."

Cutler's absence from the line up is a big lose for Chicago, with the starting QB completing 65 percent of his passes for 1,658 yards and 12 touchdowns under new head coach's Marc Trestman's system, helping the team jump out to a 4-2 start in what is a tough NFC North division with Green Bay and the Detroit Lions, whom the Bears play next week, jostling for playoff position.

The Bears have also lost seven-time All-Pro LB Lance Briggs for about a month with a shoulder injury, who has made 64 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles and eight passes over seven games this year.

"We really have to play together more than ever now," said Chicago coach Marc Trestman. "And I think that's something that we're capable of doing."
