Bears Win North, Completing Packers' Fall - New York Times
As the crowd filed in before the game, many fans wearing orange hunting overalls on the 28-degree night, it could muster only a few boos for the Bears, the Packers' longtime rivals.For years, the rivalry had taken on a lopsided feel, unlike the always-close games between the Packers and the Vikings. Favre's career record against the Bears stands at 21-7. But on Sunday, Favre wasn't talking to reporters after the game and the Packers had been reduced to using a fill-in punter, Ryan Flinn, who was working as a bartender last week. And Bears fans in attendance could cheer with the knowledge that their team had swept the season series with Green Bay for the first time since 1991, the year before Favre joined the Packers.
