The Chicago Bears currently sit at 8-4 on the season, right around where most people expected them to be at the beginning of the season. The team got off to a hot start and has since cooled off, but that doesn't mean the season is over yet.
The Bears have four games left and three of them are against NFC North opponents, meaning that if the Bears win out, they will win the division and clinch a spot in the playoffs.
The Bears will need their players to be on the absolute top of their game these next few games, and they have a lot of players who are injured and not able to perform at their top level.
That being said, the team has several players who have been performing at the very highest level possible, breaking records and getting national attention along the way.
The success of this team is no fluke, and it can be attributed to a number of players, both on offense and defense from the 2012 season. Players that, even when the season ends, should have one more game left to play in Hawaii with the other top players from around the league at the Pro Bowl.
