Surveying the Home Stretch: What Must Chicago Do to Earn Playoff Spot?

We're about halfway through the regular season, with the Chicago Bears having played seven games and winning six of them.

At this point in the season, the Bears are right where they thought they would be as far as their record goes. They hold a two-game lead on both Minnesota and Green Bay in the NFC North and have played phenomenal football up to this point, setting up records as they go along.

There is, however, always room for improvement. The Bears haven't had that hard of a schedule so far this season, and it's going to get tougher, with games against Green Bay, Minnesota, San Francisco and Houston left, just to name a few.

With nine games left, the Bears have just a few things to improve on, and if they do that, they can win the NFC North, and clinch a playoff spot for the 2012 NFL season.
