I detailed the Giants/Bears battle for the 6th seed in the Giants’ write up. The Bears should take care of their business and beat the Cardinals and Detroit. They’ve beaten everyone they’re supposed to, going 7-0 SU as favorites of 3.5 or more this year. That would put them at 10-6 and needing a New York loss in Baltimore, which I think they get, to make the playoffs. However, the 6 seed will probably send them to Green Bay in the first round (against whom Jay Cutler is 1-8) and if it doesn’t, it’ll send them to San Francisco, who blew them out earlier this year (albeit without Cutler) and who might be the best team in the NFL. The Bears’ major struggles against playoff caliber teams should make them one and done this postseason.
