After starting the season 7-1, the Chicago Bears have struggled in recent weeks, going just 2-5 in their last seven games. The team now needs a win against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, coupled with a Minnesota Vikings loss, to make the playoffs as a Wild Card team.
The Lions have been a major disappointment, sitting at the bottom of the NFC North with a 4-11 record after going 10-6 last season and clinching the team's first playoff berth for the first time since 2000.
The two teams squared off on October 22 on Monday Night Football with the Bears coming away with a 13-7 victory to improve to 5-1.
With so much at stake on Sunday, the Bears will have to play one of their best games of the season against a fierce rival.
