The Chicago Bears will have to rely on themselves to make the playoffs.
The Chicago Bears enter Week 17 with a golden opportunity to make the playoffs, but they will likely have to rely on themselves to do so. The Bears received a huge gift from the San Francisco 49ers, who beat the Arizona Cardinals to put the Monsters of the Midway in control of their own destiny.
As a result, the Bears needed to win their final two games against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Green Bay Packers and they would earn a spot in the postseason. Well, after yesterday’s demolishing of the Jags, they are halfway towards that goal.
