Chicago Bears playoff picture: Need a victory over Packers in Week 17

After being embarrassed on Sunday Night football, the Bears need a win in Week 17 to make the playoffs.

There wasn't much of a question that the Bears defense would struggle versus LeSean McCoy and the high-powered Eagles offense, but many thought Chicago could at least keep pace versus a porous Philadelphia pass defense.

That proved to be a terrible calculation, as Philadelphia managed to bring enough pressure to keep Jay Cutler and Company completely off-balanced, and dominated Chicago in every facet of Sunday night's game.

Despite having the ability to clinch the NFC North with a victory, the Bears have to now regroup and focus their attention to the final regular season game of the year, of course against the rival Green Bay Packers.

On one hand, the Bears get to play in the confines of their home stadium, but after being dismantled by the Eagles, and the possibility of Aaron Rodgers returning to action after being sidelined by a fractured collarbone, it leaves us wondering if Marc Trestman can put anything together.

If the Bears win, they claim the NFC North title and a post-season berth. If they lose, they will be sent home to lick their wounds.

How do you feel about this NFC North showdown?
