Last week I misspoke on the show saying that if the Bears lost and the Eagles won that the Philadelphia Eagles would then clinch the number 2 seed in the NFC. That was a mistake on my part and instead if you are a Packer fan you then need the complete opposite to happen. Fortunately the Bears won today and if the Eagles lose on Tuesday then the Chicago Bears will clinch the number 2 seed in the NFC meaning they could virtually have nothing to play for next week vs. the Packers.
I'm not saying that I don't have faith in the Packers to beat the Bears if the Bears indeed do have to play for something all I'm saying is it would be nice especially with how beat up NFL teams get by week 17 to not have to play a team at full strength to win a game, especially one this important. It would also serve as a confidence booster for any team going in the playoffs to win, so maybe the Bears will play their starters regardless if they are playing for anything.
So if you are a Green Bay fan then the best case scenario would be Atlanta beating New Orleans and the Vikings beating the Ealges.
