They'll face a big rival in primetime: Packers, Bears meet for the second time this season Sunday night!

GREEN BAY (WITI) -- A 44-23 loss to the New Orleans Saints led the Green Bay Packers into their Bye Week -- and they're back in action this week. The Packers will face the rival Chicago Bears in a Sunday night game at Lambeau Field.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

The Packers are 5-3 on the season, and Chicago is 3-5.

The Bears are also coming off of their Bye Week following a 51-23 loss to the Patriots on October 26th.

Sunday night's game marks the second time the Packers and Bears have met this season. Their last meeting came during Week 4 -- and resulted in a 38-17 Packers win.

Sunday will mark game number 190 in the NFL’s oldest rivalry. The Bears hold a 93-90-6 edge in the series, which includes two playoff games (1-1). The last time Green Bay led the overall series? On the heels of its three straight NFL championships in 1932, when the Packers led 11-10-5.

Starting in 1923, the clubs met for 59 straight years until both games in 1982 were canceled as part of a strike-shortened season.

During the 2010 season, the teams squared off in the playoffs for just the second time in the history of the series. With a berth in Super Bowl XLV on the line, the Packers emerged victorious, 21-14, in the NFC Championship Game at Soldier Field.

Sunday night's game will mark the ninth consecutive NFL season the Packers and Bears will play in primetime. It is the second year in a row that Chicago will play at Green Bay in early November after visiting Lambeau Field on November 4th last season.

The Chicago Bears are the team the Packers have faced the most in primetime, dating back to 1970.

Under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, the Packers are 12-6 against the Bears during the regular and postseason, including 5-3 at home. In all but one of the 12 wins under McCarthy, Green Bay has scored at least 20 points.

Sunday's game will be the fourth divisional game this season for the Packers, having won two of the first three, including the only matchup at home, a 42-10 win over Minnesota in Week 5.

The Packers have the benefit of playing at Lambeau Field for the long haul. They'll play four of their next five games at home.

Green Bay will come out of its bye week with a home game for only the third time in eight seasons under McCarthy (2009, 2013). In games immediately following its bye week, Green Bay has won 14 of its last 18. Under McCarthy, the Packers are 7-1 in the game following the bye. McCarthy’s .875 winning percentage (7-1) in games following the bye week is tied for the second highest in NFL history.

Green Bay has won its first game after the bye each of the last five seasons, outscoring its opponents 148-70 in those contests.

Sunday's game marks the fifth time in the last six seasons that the Packers will play an opponent from the NFC North in the first game after the bye.

The Packers and Bears last met on September 28th at Soldier Field in a matchup the Packers won (38-17). In that game, Green Bay scored on each of its first six possessions to take a 38-17 lead. The Packers defense intercepted QB Jay Cutler twice in the third quarter. QB Aaron Rodgers connected on 22 of 28 passes for 302 yards, four touchdowns and a passer rating of 151.2. WR Jordy Nelson finished with 10 receptions for 108 yards and two touchdowns and WR Randall Cobb totaled 113 yards on seven receptions with two touchdowns.

The Packers hope home field advantage this Sunday will mean a victory over the rival Bears. The Packers have started the season 3-0 at home for the second consecutive season and the 21st time in franchise history. Green Bay is looking to start 4-0 at home for the 16th time in franchise history.

The Packers are also hopeful this will be a high-scoring game. Green Bay has scored over 30 points in the first three home games (38, 42, 31). Dating back to 1921, it is the first time the Packers have registered at least 30 points in each of their first three home games.
