Bears stroll into Play-Offs for first time in 4 years
The Chicago Bears
swept to their first NFC North title
since 2001 last week and they did it in the best way possible beating old rivals
Green Bay Packers in Wisconsin 24-17 on Christmas Day.
Yesterday the Bears could afford to rest a number of their best players, with the semi-final play-off berth already secured. They lost to the Minnesota Vikings
34-10 but it didn't matter as they ended the regular season 11-4.
Winning the NFC North means that they avoid the first round of the Play-Offs, which start next week. In a very confusing system
, the Bears will play either Tampa Bay Buccaneers if they win their play-off game against Washington Redskins or the victors of the New York Giants and Carolina Panthers match up.
I have taken slightly more interest in this season's NFL because of the relative success of the Bears. More on their prospects of reaching the Superbowl soon.
