The Packers today announced Aaron Rodgers will start Sunday against the Bears and pretend whichever team wins won’t be crushed in the first round of the playoffs.

“It’ll be great to get back out there,” said Rodgers after missing almost eight weeks due to a broken collarbone. “I promised coach I’d even act like this game means something even though it might as well be a scrimmage since the 49ers or any other playoff-bound team will demolish us next week.”
