Mark your calanders: January 5 Bears @ Packers
That is right, I am calling it. Bears will make the playoffs as the six seed and travel north to the Frozen Tundra to face the hated rival packers!
NFL.com has the Bears listed as the 7th seed at the moment, with the Vikings as the 6th seed. Bears SHOULD be able to beat the Lions and the Cardinals. The Vikings SHOULD lose to both the packers and the Texans.
With the Bears making the playoffs at 10-6, Lovie likely comes back. Likely as a lame duck coach, but he will be back in 2013, even if the Bears get ousted in the first round!
