They also control their own destiny in division title race. The Packers also control their own destiny because they play the Bears week 17.

Paea and Ratliff likely to play against Minnesota

  As the Bears continue to be afflicted with injuries -especially on defense- the defensive tackle position has been the most vulnerable. That could change tomorrow afternoon when the Bears take on the Vikings (in their last trip ever to the HHH Metrodome) as both the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times are both reporting that both Stephen Paea and recently acquired Jeremiah Ratliff could suit up and ...
