Four months ago, the Green Bay Packers probably knew this Sunday's game at Lambeau against the Chicago Bears would have significant implications to their playoff hopes.
They were right.
The magnitude of Sunday's game will represent the Packers' entire season: resulting in a playoff berth, or elimination from postseason contention.
When faced with a win-or-go-home situation against the New York Giants last Sunday, Aaron Rodgers directed the Packers to a decisive 45-17 victory; helping Green Bay's playoff probabilities to skyrocket.
However, this Sunday brings nearly twice as much importance as last, and Lovie Smith's Bears remain in the hunt for the top seed in the NFC playoffs.
With so many matchups, and countless playmakers on both sides to the ball, who must step up to ensure a playoff berth?
