Chicago Bears fans should want to play a motivated Green Bay Packers team.
Heading into their Week 16 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears fans are crunching the numbers trying to figure out how the team can make the playoffs. Sitting at 7-7, and currently on the outside looking in, the team realistically needs to win its next two, which includes a Week 17 tilt against the Green Bay Packers.
However, even if the Bears finish 9-7, they are not guaranteed a playoff berth and will need some help from other teams. But first thing’s first — they need to get to 9-7 to have a legitimate shot. While there are no “gimmes” in the NFL, playing the Jaguars who were just gifted the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft by the New York Jets, is as close as it gets.
