The Green Bay Packers won the NFC Championship earlier in the day. 

"It's an incredible feeling," Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. "I'm at a loss for words."

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler went out with a knee injury in the first half.  Todd Collins was not effective as his replacement.  Instead, the Bears elected to play backup Caleb Hanie.  He had two touchdowns but also added two critical interceptions.
