This could be the final game of the 2020 season for the Chicago Bears.
A win guarantees them a wildcard game next week, but a loss will leave their fate in the hands of the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams play the Cardinals at the same time the Bears play, and if they knock off Arizona the Bears will back into the postseason.
Head coach Matt Nagy said that they won’t have the score of the Rams game on display at Soldier Field because he wants his team all-in on beating the Packers. “We’ve got to worry about us,” Nagy said, “and we’ve got to do everything we can to win this game.”
I personally don’t give a damn how the Bears make the playoffs as long as they get in the tourney somehow. We’re talking about a franchise with six postseason appearances since Mike Ditka was fired, so get in there and see what happens.
