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 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.
