NFC Championship preview: Bears-Packers showdown

Bears fans, want the secret to winning Sunday’s NFC Championship? "It’s really all about the fat guys. If you think about it, the first line of defense is usually fat guys, and the first line of offense is fat guys. You know, that’s a bonus. You can move, and you got a big belly." That's according to Bears defensive tackle Anthony Adams--it's not about touchdowns or turnovers; it's about the fat guys.

So here’s to downing that deep dish fellas!

But seriously, with all the anticipation surrounding Sunday’s NFC Championship, this is a game with story lines on top of story lines. You’ve got your players, the coaches, the turf itself – talk about a deep dish!

To serve up a steaming hot slice, host Alison Cuddy spoke with "Eight Forty-Eight's" sports contributor  Cheryl Raye-Stout. The NFC Championship game kicks off at 2:00 p.m. Sunday: Go Bears!
