The Chicago Bears are currently in first place in the NFC North and pretty much need to win the final two games on their schedule if they want to win it.
It’s either win the NFC North or go home considering the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints or Carolina Panthers will be taking the Wild Card’s in the conference. With Aaron Rodgers possibly being sidelined on Sunday, they could take a huge step towards their first NFC North title since the 2010 season.
Head coach Marc Trestman is making a case for himself when it comes to Coach of the Year honors. He brought a system to Chicago that has worked out perfectly, which features two Chicago Bears receivers over 1,000 yards receiving.
He also has two quarterbacks who are nearly at 2,000 yards passing and 13+ touchdowns each. Their only downside has been their defense. If Chicago was able to keep their defense together and perform like they did last year? They could easily be the best team in the conference.
But things could be taking a weird turn. Now according to NFL.com, Marc Trestman is open to resting his starters, but it may not come to that decision. Which is a wise choice.
It’s too close of a race for this team taking a game off. Both of these games count, especially with Green Bay playing great football as of late with Matt Flynn.
This Sunday is a huge game against Philadelphia and they’re hoping they can get Lance Briggs back in the starting line up to help contain LeSean McCoy.
