This weekend you'll see Bears Coach Lovie Smith do something you'll probably never see him do again. Root for the Green Bay Packers.
Right now the Bears sit at 9-6 and so do the Minnesota Vikings. In order to secure a wild card spot, The Bears need to beat Detroit this Sunday and also have the Vikings lose to Green Bay. If Minnesota wins, they will make the playoffs at 10-6 because they have a better divisional record.
"Of course we will [root for Green Bay]. Minnesota has played good football; the Packers have [too]. We have a tough division. As we said this week, we can't do much about that [Packers-Vikings game]. All we can do is get a win against Detroit."
The one good thing for the Bears is that Green Bay needs to win to wrap up a first round bye in the NFC.
"Now with one game left we can talk about just this game and having a chance to get into the playoffs. We're in position for the biggest game we've had in a long time," said Smith.
