The Chicago Bears are looking to keep their slim playoff hopes alive as they host the Washington Redskins on Sunday at Soldier Field.
But Soldier Field hasn’t been too kind to the Bears this season as they are just 1-5. With two games remaining, the Bears are looking to avoid winning two or fewer games at home in back-to-back seasons.
Believe it or not, they still have a shot at the playoffs thanks to the Minnesota Vikings loss on Thursday to the Arizona Cardinals. The Bears cannot be eliminated from the playoffs this week and with a win, could really make things interesting. They would need to finish at 9-7 and have some things go their way, but the door isn’t closed yet.
Here’s what you need to know about Sunday’s game.
