And then there was one.
The 2022 season has reached its final week, and the Chicago Bears are in a fight for draft positioning. Losers of nine straight games, the 3-13 Bears hold the No. 2 pick in the draft entering their Week 18 game against the Minnesota Vikings. If the Houston Texans beat the Indianapolis Colts and the Bears lose to the Vikings, Chicago would secure the No. 1 pick.
Minnesota still has plenty to play for, especially after a blowout loss to the Packers at Lambeau Field in Week 17. Kirk Cousins’ squad has already clinched the NFC North title, but their playoff seed isn’t determined yet. The Vikings will be the No. 2 seed in the NFC with a win and a 49ers loss, but they’ll be the No. 3 seed in any other scenario.
So, will the Bears end the season with a win? Or can the Vikings get back on track heading into the postseason?
