The Green Bay Packers can win the division and secure a playoff berth by defeating their hated rivals to the south on Sunday afternoon.
There is a simple task in front of the Green Bay Packers when they visit the Chicago Bears at noon Sunday at Soldier Field. Win the game, win the NFC North and guarantee a playoff berth. FOX6 will broadcast the game locally, and Packers fans will see if Clay Matthews — back in the lineup after missing four games with a hamstring injury — can energize an anemic pass rush and harass “Smokin’ Jay Cutler” into the same sort of performance he had in Week 2 in Green Bay. In that game, Cutler threw four interceptions in a 23-10 Packers win. Cutler will play in Sunday’s game despite a knee sprain, but key defensive players Brian Urlacher and Tim Jennings will miss the game. After Sunday’s game with the Bears, the Packers finish the regular season …

Are you celebrating Wisconsin's special 12-12-12? Share what you like best about the Green Bay Packers quarterback here – or tell us why you can't stand him!
I personally think 12-12-12 should be a national holiday, but with our president being a Bears fan and all … it’s not going to happen. It’s Aaron Rodgers day. A day for Green Bay Packers fans to celebrate the success of the team under the leadership of No. 12. Let’s just face it, it’s a day for us to wear our green and gold jerseys, to paint our fingernails green (am I right, ladies?) and to just get darn excited that we are Packers fans from Wisconsin. Aaron Rodgers day started as a Facebook joke that became viral. The state legislature officially declared Dec. 12, 2012, to be his day. Milwaukee County workers are being allowed to wear Packers jerseys or shirts to work on Wednesday. Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele is encouraging …

If you're headed north to see Green Bay take on Detroit Sunday, make sure you allow yourself some extra time for travel.
If you're lucky enough to have tickets to Sunday night's prime-time showdown between the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions, make sure you allow yourself a little extra time for the trip north because the roads could be treacherous. The National Weather Service says a significant storm that could bring more than 6 inches of snow to north-central and northeast Wisconsin could begin as early as late Saturday night and continue into Sunday night. The weather service says hazardous travel conditions could occur in the Green Bay area as a result of the snowfall, so allow some extra time on your way to Lambeau Field. Forecasters also note, however, that there still a lot of uncertainty about the size and strength of the storm. The good news…

Search Patch's interactive database to see who in Fox Point and Bayside is making contributions to President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
While polls show President Barack Obama may have more support from Wisconsin voters than Republican candidate Mitt Romney, there are some indications that the race may be tightening. A Marquette University poll released last week shows Obama leading Romney, 53 percent to 42 percent, which is down from the 14-point lead Obama held in the same poll in mid-September. Campaign contributions for Fox Point and Bayside combined are nearly identitcal for each candidate, with $22,009 donated to Obama and $22,120 donated to Romney. However, of the 20 individual donations made to Romney from Bayside residents, Dr. William W. Greaves made 16 of those, for a total of $10,645 coming from just one person. That leaves only $2,375 coming from other Bayside…

Governor dismisses any personal responsibility for forcing league's hand, but he's happy it's over and so is all of Wisconsin — red and blue alike.

The final question for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in a Thursday media conference on the 2012 presidential race was decidedly non-political — and Walker did turn it into a strong non-partisan message. How does he feel about the return of professional NFL referees to the game? The governor, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, reporters and a roomful of supporters in the Wauwatosa GOP Victory Center erupted in laughter. But then Walker got serious — or semi-serious. Walker said he had been on a broadcast show earlier Thursday morning, "and they said, 'And now, the governor who brought the NFL to their knees.' "I'd like to claim credit for that, but I think — no," Walker said. Walker had famously tweeted Tuesday from his @GovWalker account, “After …

Washington Patch users weigh in on the finish to the Green Bay-Seattle Monday Night Football game.
Seattleites and all Washingtonians know Monday night's last-second victory over the Green Bay Packers was lucky as a winning lottery ticket. But few feel the need to apologize about that fact. Out West, 'Hawks fans are saying, the team has caught its share of bad breaks and worse calls. (Remember Superbowl XL against Pittsburgh?) So when the team caught a good one – with the generous help of Packer defensive back M. D. Jennings and replacement refs -- the thinking in the Evergreen State was, "It's about time." Call it the Karmic Katch. Although to be honest, few seem to think that either the catch or the penalty just prior were exactly fair to the Packers faithful. Seattle-area Patch sites already got a dose of the reaction from Wisconsin…
