"It's rough," Jennings said Monday. "It's probably one of the worst -- probably the worst -- in the league."
"You have to go out before the game, pregame, and kind of get a feel of what you're working with, what you're dealing with, get your footing, because that's going to play a huge, huge role in the game," Jennings said. "But you can't allow that to affect the way you play."
NFL officials are expected to monitor the situation and work with the stadium's field manager during the week, taking action if necessary -- although it's not clear what could be done to improve conditions on short notice, as the field recently was re-sodded.
"Obviously, yesterday it snowed pretty much throughout the game. That makes it wet. ... By the end of the game, it's sloppy and chopped up. It is what it is."
And Soldier Field didn't provide a pronounced advantage for the home team this season. Chicago was 5-3 at home during the regular season -- including a blowout loss to the New England Patriots in snowy conditions -- and 6-2 on the road.
The Packers also are accustomed to playing outdoors in poor conditions, but Lambeau Field has a hybrid natural/synthetic turf blend that has held up well in bad weather.
"Chicago's field has always been like that," Williams said. "So it's nothing different. It's something that we're prepared for. And you've just got to have the right cleats or whatever. It shouldn't really be a problem."
