The Chicago Bears are taking on the Green Bay Packers in the season finale. The winner gets the NFC North crown and a trip to the playoffs.

Adding to the intrigue of this high-stakes game is the return of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. There is concern from Bears fans that his presence has immediately hindered their chances to win. There is concern from Packers fans that he could be a bit rusty and could hurt their chances.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy could go with a safer game plan to combat any rust, but he said he won’t.

“To me, that goes back to the decision,” McCarthy said Friday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “If we were thinking that way, the decision wouldn’t be what it is. The decision’s been made. Obviously it was a thorough one. And it’s time for Aaron to play.

“We’re going to cut him loose and we’re going to go play. We’re going to play to win.”
