The Chicago Bears are in a tough spot.
They've gone from playing arguably the best football in the NFL over the past five games to losing their star quarterback for the rest of the season. Now they are forced to finish the year with a backup who hasn't started a game in his career.
Caleb Hanie will fill the role Jay Cutler played as the man leading this team to the playoffs.
Hanie won't need to do the same things Cutler did in order to win games for the Bears, but he will need to play well, and much of the team's playoff hopes now rest on his shoulders.
This list will cover Caleb Hanie and four other areas of the Chicago Bears that will need to step up in Week 12 in order for the Bears to continue their winning streak and stay in the playoff hunt.
