NFL  > Chicago Bears  > Week 17....The NFC North
December 24, 2012, 09:40 AM
The Chicago Bears looked primed to back in to the playoffs with a win over the Detroit Lions, and the Green Bay Packers beating the Minnesota Vikings, to keep their # 2 seed.

Will be a tense week all around the NFL, they will put all the games that effect one another on at the same time...I can not wait til Sunday

It appears that everybody will back from injury for the Bears...full steam ahead.

Go Bears & Go Packers !!

The NFL........nothing like it, huh?

The Cowboys can still win their division simply by beating the Redskins this coming week, even after losing to the Saints yesterday. Go figure. The Giants need emergency surgery, and help from like 30 teams............

*Shaking my head*

And, who....besides EZ......had faith in the Bengals knocking the Steelers out of the playoffs?

The NFL........Excitement all season long!

Bull,

Too tell ya the truth? I was kinda doubtful myself,But the injury bug had hittin the Steelers big time,and gave Cincy a chance too do what they did yesterday,and just barely!

But i'll take a fugly game like that 24/7/365 inf its a win!

Both defenses were better than good yesterday and made it 'in the trenchs' kind of game.

Pittsburgh has been riddled with injuries all season long, And Dalton and the Cincy offense need too convert what the D gives them.

But non the less.both teams defenses went after both offenses' Hence that low scoring game.

BGD/GSH/BF, Kudos on the BEARS win yesterday!

The injury bug has hit most teams. The Cowboys have been playing with half or more of their defensive starters out, and have been out for quite some time. Even Ware is banged up now. The offense has been playing lights out..........I'd like for them to at least beat the Redskins, and win the division. That's more than I could have ever imagined earlier in the season. I figured no more than 7-9 or 6-10 at one point

Being a divisional game,[and the game deciding on the playoffs.] I think yer Cowboys can geter done.

Cincy beat the Skins and you beat us. Best of Luck Bull. for both our teams.

To me, the game is a tossup really. But, Washington beat Dallas in Texas and it's awfully tough to sweep a team when they are so evenly matched. If I had to make a guess, I'd say Dallas will win, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Hey DJ! Merry Christmas!

I give them a more than better chance,after losing that heart breaker with N.O. yesterday?

I think the Cowboys will come in hungry with the playoffs in decision? Do what it takes too win.

Thanks, EZ. I believe the Cowboys can beat the 'Skins, but they're going to have to play lights out.....not going to be easy. Should be a good game, regardless of who wins. I'm going to have to record it, because they changed the time. Got church that night, and have to watch the game later.

Best of luck to your Bengals. I'd like to see them go far.

It hasn't been easy when 6, maybe 7 starters of the 11 on defense are out with injuries......we'll see, tho. They will have to outscore them.

Hope your Christmas was as bright and as good as any, BG! Hope your New Year goes as you want as well!

Yes, the Cowboys have their work cut out for them, but even if they lose, I'm looking forward to a better year next year. If, per chance, they do win, I don't expect them to go far anyway, simply because of having "plug and play" replacement players, mainly on defense.

I can only imagine how good the defense "could" have been had they had their full compliment of healthy players. But, you can say that about the Steelers, Bears, and any number of teams with a lot of starters out.

It's been a really strange year anyway.

Too make it legit? Cincy has too win 1 playoff game too shed the '1 and done' moniker once and for all, as 30 years is a very long time.

Thanks, EZ.

I'm gonna have to record the game Sunday night. Got something going on at church that night, so it's either record it, or miss it entirely..........I wish they wouldn't have changed the schedule.
