After starting the season off with a 7-1 record, the Bears have now lost five of their last six games as they are reeling to hang on to an NFC wildcard spot, especially with teams like the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings all nipping at their heels. Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers have locked up the NFC North with a win over the Bears in Chicago in Week 15.
The Bears struck first as Jay Cutler found Brandon Marshall on a short touchdown pass, but three consecutive touchdown passes from Aaron Rodgers to James Jones gave the Packers the game as well as the division as they defeated the Bears by a score of 21-13.
As of right now, the Packers are the third seed in the NFC, which would have them set to play the sixth-seeded team in the first round of the playoffs, which was the Bears heading into Week 15. However, with teams like the Redskins and Vikings winning this week, and if the Cowboys win, one of those teams could find themselves taking the Bears' spot.
