>>Cutler Admits Bears Could Be In For Changes
Jay Cutler is ready for just about any scenario next week after the Chicago Bears' dismal season comes to an end.
He understands changes could be coming, that coaches could be gone and so could he. Cutler says that's "part of it."
The future of everyone from general manager Phil Emery to coach March Trestman to his assistants and the quarterback with a seven-year contract is in question with the Bears (5-10) last in the NFC North and the season ending at Minnesota on Sunday.
It's quite a fall for a team that envisioned a playoff run.
Instead, the Bears are missing the postseason for the seventh time in eight years.
>>Lions, Packers Play For NFC North Crown
(Green Bay, WI) -- The Detroit Lions meet the Green Bay Packers at historic Lambeau Field with the division crown on the line Sunday afternoon. In addition to the NFC North title, both teams can still secure a first-round bye or even home-field throughout the NFC playoffs if things shake out properly with the league's other 11-and-4 teams. The Packers have won 22-straight regular-season home games against Detroit, and are 7-and-0 at Lambeau this season. Detroit is seeking its first division title since 1993. The Lions defeated the Packers 19-7 back in September.
>>Bears And Vikings Wrap Up Season
(Minneapolis, MN) -- Jay Cutler is back under center for the Bears as they finish off an underwhelming season at the Vikings in Minnesota on Sunday. Cutler was benched last week for Jimmy Clausen in Chicago's, 20-14, loss to the Lions. Clausen suffered a concussion with Chicago losing a fourth straight game and falling to 5-and-10. The Vikings dropped to 6-and-9 last week losing a wild, 37-35, overtime game to the Dolphins. On a positive note, Minnesota rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has throw two touchdown passes in four out of the last five games.
>>Seahawks Host Rams With NFC West Title On The Line
(Seattle, WA) -- The defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks can clinch their second straight NFC West Division title and the number-one seed in the NFC on Sunday as they host the St. Louis Rams at CenturyLink Field. The 'Hawks have won five in-a-row and eight of their last nine since losing 28-26 at St. Louis in Week Seven. Seattle is coming off a 35-6 rout of Arizona last Sunday night that has them atop the NFC at 11-and-4. A loss to the Rams and an Arizona win in San Francisco would give the Cardinals the division crown. The Rams sit at 6-and-9 and will endure their eighth straight losing season.
