Chicago Bears could clinch NFL playoffs spot next weekend

CHICAGO (WLS) -- After the Chicago Bears' defense shut down the high-powered offense of the Los Angeles Rams Sunday night in a 15-6 victory at Soldier Field, the team moved closer to locking up their first playoff appearance since the 2010 season.

The win over the Rams gives the Bears a 9-4 record. A win over the rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Soldier Field would be enough to secure the NFC North Division Title.

The Bears could also clinch the NFC North if the Minnesota Vikings lose to the Miami Dolphins Sunday.

Even if the Bears lose and the Vikings win on Sunday, the Bears can still clinch at least a wild card spot if the Washington Redskins lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The last time the Bears made it to the playoffs, they lost to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game at Soldier Field. The Packers went on to win the Super Bowl.
