If you're one of those fans who watched Monday's Bears-Packers game simply to pass the time before the release of "Call of Duty: Ghosts" on Tuesday, well, that's understandable. However, you might not have realized Marc Trestman's team strikes a parallel with the game. You could say the Bears, like the protagonists in "Ghosts," represent "a crippled nation fighting not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive. " (That synopsis comes straight from the game's website.) After all, the Bears have so many injuries to key players that the underdog card is one of the few advantages they had heading into...

It could have been Chicago's dream come true: Winning a division title at the expense of its hated rival and earning a home playoff game next week.  Yet the city got its worst nightmare: the Packers celebrating yet another huge victory in Chicago, and the Bears going home for the winter.  The soul crusher came with 38 seconds remaining. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, in his first game back from a broken collarbone, found Randall Cobb for a 48-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-8.

I know this comes as a crushing blow to Bears fans everywhere, but the Green Bay Packers will not be defending their Super Bowl title this year. We have the N.Y. Giants to thank for that. Give those guys a treat. On Sunday, the Giants exposed the Packers' Swiss cheese defense, cruising to a 37-20 win at Lambeau Field. They did it through the air, on the ground and inside the heads of the Packers. Earlier Sunday, Baltimore ousted the surprising Houston Texans, setting up an NFL final four of the Giants, Ravens, San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots.

Win and they clinch the NFC North. That was the situation for the Bears heading into Sunday night's game at Philadelphia after both Green Bay and Detroit lost earlier in the day. The message must not have gotten to their locker room, though, because the Bears looked downright awful in a 54-11 blowout loss. That means the winner of Sunday's season finale against Green Bay at Soldier Field is going to the playoffs. But before we can look ahead, let's take a look back at the Bears' "performance" against the Eagles.

Eight down, eight to go. Green Bay is halfway to going undefeated, and the way the Packers are playing, it'd be hard to bet against them. Thanks to their 45-38 win over San Diego on Sunday, the Packers have scored at least 24 points in eight straight games for the first time in franchise history. (Hear that, Brett Favre?) And this was a road game against a team with a potent offense. Though in the grand scheme of things, it might be better for the Bears if Green Bay goes undefeated - until their clash in Week 15, that is. If the Packers are 14-0 entering that game, then...

Time to take a deep breath, Bears fans. Heading into the bye week, Lovie Smith's team is 4-1. That's a far cry from where it felt the Bears might be after the Packers manhandled them in Week 2. Now they have more than two weeks to heal and game-plan before a Monday night throwdown against Detroit on Oct. 22 at Soldier Field. And now that the dust has settled on the first five weeks of the season, let's see who's trending in the NFC North.   Bears (4-1) Five defensive touchdowns in the past three games.

This is great time of year for me. Not so cold that I freeze my paws off, not so hot that I'm sweating through my fur. Also, the Bears schedule is here!

The Bears' remaining regular-season home games are against Minnesota, Seattle and Green Bay, meaning their cold-weather advantage will be minimal. But a look at these frigid games under coach Lovie Smith shows that "Bear Weather" doesn't always work in the home team's favor.   Dec. 19, 2004 vs. Houston Temperature: 9 degrees Supposed advantage: Huge Outcome: Texans whip an uninspired Bears team 24-5.   Dec. 18, 2005 vs. Atlanta Temperature: 12 degrees Supposed advantage: Huge Outcome: Bears grind out win over tired...

Once a rival, always a rival. With the Bears taking on Green Bay on Sunday in the season finale, RedEye spoke with retired Bears Jerry Azumah, Rashied Davis and Hunter Hillenmeyer to get their take on the Packers now that they're done playing. Spoiler alert: They're still not fans.   What was your knowledge of the rivalry before you came to the Bears? Azumah (drafted by Bears in 1999): I've always been a Chicago Bears fan. I was a fan of Walter Payton growing up, and my father watched two teams: Pittsburgh and the Bears.

The Bears' Week 1 win gave fans a lot to feel optimistic about. But how can we expect the remaining games to go? Thanks to a free weekend of NFL Sunday Ticket, I watched part or all of every Week 1 game. I'm not saying you should wager your hard-earned money based on this info. But you COULD. Sunday vs. Minnesota: The Bears should put 12 players "in the box" to stop Adrian Peterson. Sign a guy made of antimatter for the secondary to balance the numbers. Christian Ponder will have four turnovers.

The great experiment begins. Can the Bears, always known for middle linebackers and running backs, evolve into a modern NFL franchise? One with an offensive-minded head coach, talented QB and modern-thinking GM? Of course not. This is Chicago, and we just don't do this! That won't stop us from trying, so here are some boldless predictions to start the season. Week 1: Home against the Bengals. To seem more like a Bears coach, Marc Trestman changes his name to Mark Trestman.
