Chart: A look ahead to next week's game against Chicago

  • December 2, 2012 - 11:28 PM

NEXT OPPONENT:

CHICAGO (8-4)

The Bears' loss at home to Seattle was their third in four games, and they have only one home game remaining -- against the Packers on Dec. 16 in Chicago.

BEARS WEEK 13

Seattle 23, Chicago 17

The Bears forced overtime when Jay Cutler's 56-yard pass to Brandon Marshall set up a 46-yard field goal by Robbie Gould, but Seattle scored a TD on the opening overtime possession.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

Brandon Marshall, WR

Marshall was targeted 17 times and had 12 short receptions last week in a victory over the Vikings. He is second in the NFL with 91 catches and figures to dominate the smaller Vikings defensive backs.

OUTLOOK

The Bears defense is battling the perception that it is old, and this is the Vikings' last chance to make a playoff bid. Still, Chicago is a more talented team. Outlook: Horns down
