NFL passing leader Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (5-3) host Jay Cutler and the NFC North rival Chicago Bears (3-5) at legendary Lambeau Field this Sunday on NBC's "Sunday Night Football." Sunday night's pre-game coverage begins with "Football Night In America" at 7 p.m. ET.

Sunday's game is the 190th regular-season meeting between the Bears and Packers - the most played series in NFL history. In addition, the game marks the ninth consecutive season featuring a Bears-Packers primetime matchup, tying an NFL record (Chargers-Raiders, 1981-89).

Both teams come off a bye, with the Packers only one game behind the NFC North-leading Detroit Lions (6-2), while the Bears aim to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Calling Bears-Packers is Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.

"Football Night In America," the most-watched studio show in sports, is hosted by Bob Costas, who will report from Lambeau Field. He will be joined on site by Collinsworth, Tafoya, two-time Super Bowl winner Hines Ward, and NBC Sports commentator Josh Elliott.

Dan Patrick co-hosts "Football Night" from NBC Sports Group's Studio 1 and will be joined by Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy, two-time Super Bowl winner Rodney Harrison, Mike Florio of "Pro Football Talk" on NBCSN/NBCSports.com, and Peter King of Sports Illustrated.

Carolyn Manno will report from CenturyLink Field in Seattle on the Giants-Seahawks game.
