The Chicago Bears will not have outside linebacker Khalil Mack or wide out Allen Robinson II active for today’s game against the New York Jets. This is the first time in Mack’s career he will miss a game. Here are the other Bears’ inactives for today’s game.

This will be the first time outside linebacker Kylie Fitts is active in his NFL career. Bryan Witzmann (OG) will see his first action as a Bear, and rookie wide out Javon Wims will be active as well.

Here are the Jets’ inactives.

Last week had a must-win feel for the Chicago Bears, but this week, with the Bears in last place in their division, is even more of a must win. If the Bears are who they think they are, a playoff contender, they can’t risk falling below .500 in the tough NFC North.

They need to beat the New York Jets.

The Packers (3-2-1) visit the undefeated Rams, the Vikings (4-2-1) host the 5-1 Saints, and the Seahawks (3-3) visit the Lions (3-3). All three of these NFC North teams face tough match-ups.
