Every week, Packers radio play-by-play man Wayne Larrivee, who also co-hosts the “Pro Football Weekly” syndicated radio show with PFW editor-publisher Hub Arkush, answers three pertinent questions about the Packers.
PFW: Tying in a “Three-and-out” Q&A with what will end up being three Packers-Bears this season seems like a natural. What sticks out in your mind about the first Bears-Packers matchup under the lights at Soldier Field way back in Week Three?
Larrivee: How about 18 penalties on Green Bay — a franchise single-game record! They wiped out scoring plays and takeaways.
PFW: I ask the same kind of question regarding the Packers-Bears regular-season finale. Certainly, the Bears came to play that day when they didn’t really have to. Were you surprised?
Larrivee: I was not surprised the Bears came to play. It was a tough, knock-down-drag-out type of game between two rivals who know each other well.
PFW: Finally, what do you look at as the one big key — after all is said and done — in this Sunday’s matchup?
Larrivee: Which team makes the fewest mistakes, both in terms of turnovers, dropped passes, dropped interceptions, sacks and negative plays in general.
