BLACK & BLUE BRAIN-BUSTER
Who made the last of his eight career carries in the Bears' 27-13 win over the Packers Oct. 7, 1990 at Soldier Field?

ANSWERS
1. C, Cade McNown. In one of his few good games as a Bear, McNown ran for a one-yard TD and found Marcus Robinson with scoring strikes of 68- and 58-yards in the Bears' second consecutive win in Lambeau Field.

2. A, Bryan Robinson. In the final seconds of the game, Robinson got his hand on what would have been the game-winning field goal in preserving the Bears' first win in Green Bay since 1993. The Bears were so proud of the moment they featured it on the cover of their 2000 media guide.

3. C, Curtis Enis. The performance in Green Bay was part of Enis' 916-yard campaign. The reception against the Pack was one of only three Enis would record all year.

4. B, Dante Jones. In one of the great individual performances in the rivalry, Mike Singletary's successor almost single-handedly turned back the Packers. Jones was responsible for two of the Bears' four touchdowns in what would turn out to be the club's last win over the Packers in the "old" Soldier Field.

5. B, Steve McMichael. After leaving the Bears following the 1993 season, McMichael played his final year in Green Bay in 1994.

6. C, James Thornton. "Robocop" hauled in an eight-yard TD pass from Jim Harbaugh in the second quarter to give the Bears a lead they would never relinquish.

7. C, Steve Fuller. The injury-plagued and offensively-challenged Bears only scored two touchdowns against the Packers in 1986: A two-yard run by Walter Payton and a 42-yard pass from Fuller to Keith Ortego. Both scores came in the Sept. 22 Monday Night win at Lambeau Field.

8. A, Bob Thomas. The sure-footed Thomas converted on kicks of 18-, 49- and 28-yards as the Bears turned back the Packers without the use of a touchdown.

9. D, Willie McClendon. Walter Payton's caddy capped the Bears' 54-point shellacking of the Packers with a one-yard score in the fourth quarter.

10. B, Tom Hicks. The Bears used Hicks interception return for a score plus three Bob Thomas field goals stand up to complete the sweep of the Packers.

11. A, Alan Page. After leaving the Vikings, Page had four solid seasons with the Bears. His performance against the Packers was part of a campaign, which saw Page start all 16 games and record 10 sacks.

12. C, Mike Phipps. The touchdown pass was one of only two Phipps would throw in his first season with the Bears.

13. D, Bobby Douglass. The strong-armed Douglass scored on runs of 1, 1, 2 and 1 yards as the Bears broke a four-game losing streak to the Packers.

BRAIN-BUSTER
William "The Refrigerator" Perry. The Fridge was thrown for a one-yard loss which is in stark contrast to the two touchdowns he scored against the Packers in the 1985 season.
