The NFL's oldest rivalry has a new leader. For the first time since 1932, the Green Bay Packers hold an edge in the all-time series, moving a game ahead the Bears at 95-94-6.
In 1932, Green Bay clung to a 11-10-4 lead in the all-time series, then a fledgling series between two of the first professional teams in the country.
The following season a 14-7 Bears win tied the series at 11-11-4, and a 10-7 win for Chicago later in the year gave the Bears an edge in the all-time series, a lead they'd hold for nearly a century.
With a 30-27 win last December the Packers tied the series at 94-94-6, marking the first time since 1933 they didn't trail in the all-time matchup.
Chicago held as much as a 24-game lead over the 85 years they held the edge in the series — the all-time matchup was at 50–26–6 in favor of the Bears in 1960 — but the Packers slowly climbed back, and once the 1990s hit and Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers showed up the gap closed…quickly.
Since 2010 Green Bay holds a 13-3 record over the Bears, and since 1990 Green Bay is 25-13 against Chicago.
Green Bay's blowout 35-14 victory on Thursday night gave the Pack a 95-94-6 lead in the series, the first lead in more than 80 years.
