The Chicago Bears battle the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Ford Field clinging to their playoff hopes.
After a second-half collapse, the Bears find themselves on the outside looking in.
They need a win and a Minnesota loss to Green Bay to earn a trip to the NFC playoffs.
Chicago is coming off a 28-13 victory in Arizona. The Lions have dropped seven in-a-row to slip to 4-and-11 on the year.
Calvin Johnson broke Jerry Rice’s NFL single season record for receiving yards last week and looks to add to that total.
He currently has 117 catches for 1,892 yards and five touchdowns.
The Bears have won eight of the last nine meetings in the series, including a 13-7 victory in Week Seven.
The Green Bay Packers face the Minnesota Vikings at Mall of America Field. Coming off a franchise-worst 3-and-13 season, the Vikings are one win away from reaching the NFC playoffs for the first time since 2009.
Minnesota sits at 9-and-6 overall and 6-and-1 at home.
The Packers need a victory to secure the second seed in the NFC and earn a first-round bye. Green Bay has won four in-a-row to improve to 11-and-4.
The Packers have won 12 straight division games, including a 23-14 victory over the Vikings in Week 13 at Lambeau Field.
