It's not often that I'm happy to be wrong, but this is one of those times. When I made that post, it's not that I didn't think they were capable of going at least 10-6, it's that I thought Chicago would finish at 11-5 or better and that they'd lose the tiebreaker to a 10-6 Atlanta. But then Cutler broke his thumb and Forte got injured and the Bears' season bottomed out. Otherwise their schedule looked creampuffy from 7-3 on out.



It's all good. I had my doubts as well. It's just nice to finally be talking about the Lions in a positive light this time of year...

It looks like the Lions would have backed into the playoffs anyway at 9-7 even if they had lost to the Chargers since Arizona, Seattle, and Chicago all lost.

What's really funny is that Chicago has a losing record now at 7-8. Will they beat the Vikings? If they lose to the Vikings and finish with a losing record (7-9) then it's all LOL.
