The Chicago Bears enter Week 17 with a must win game against the Green Bay Packers. The winner of Sunday’s game will win the NFC North and host at least one playoff game. QB Jay Cutler has returned to the starting lineup. While the Bears are moving the ball on offense, their defense has really struggled this season as teams are simply running the ball at will against them.
At the conclusion on Week 17, the final regular season standing will be known and so will the 2014 regular season schedule. Teams in the NFC North will face all the teams from the NFC South and the AFC East. At-large games will be against the NFC East at home and the NFC West on the road. Exact dates and times of the individual games will not be known until the league rolls out the schedule later in the spring.
