The NFC Championship Game between the Bears and Packers could hinge on big plays.

The Packers have eight sacks and three interceptions this postseason, which could spell trouble for Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler.

The Bears are an NFL-best 21.4 percent on third downs, allowing only three conversions in 14 attempts.
