NFC North Standings + remaining schedule

Bears: 8-5 (vs Green Bay, at Arizona, at Detroit)

Vikings: 7-6 (at St. Louis, at Houston, vs Green Bay)

Lions: 4-9 (at Arizona, vs Atlanta, vs Chicago)

With the first match-up between the Bears and Packers being won by Green Bay, you can see why today will be the most critical game for Chicago to date. With a Bears win, the NFC North is still in up for grabs, as is the fight for the coveted #2 seed in the NFC playoff race. With a loss, the Bears will be relegated to fighting it out with a handful of other teams for a Wild Card spot.

The Vikings are hanging around, but probably not for very much longer.
