There will be plenty of playoff implications on Monday at Soldier Field when the Bears host the Cowboys.
There is little room for error for teams on the outskirts of the NFC playoff picture. The relative strength at the top of the NFC South and NFC West means two teams from both divisions will likely be heading to the postseason. For the 6-6 Chicago Bears and 7-5 Dallas Cowboys, that means they may need to win their respective divisions if they hope to play after Week 17.
