    0.) Both GB and CHI win out until the rematch. If GB wins the rematch, then we win the division: same record, split head-to-head, same division record, but GB will have the better conference record.


    1.) GB and CHI lose one more each until the rematch, but GB wins the rematch. Then we win the division. The likely losses? Say GB loses at NE, CHI loses vs NE. Again, GB wins the conference record tie-breaker. Say GB loses to NE, CHI loses vs NYJ. Then the same applies. Say GB loses to NYG, CHI loses vs NE (so we both beat NYJ). Then we have the same conference record, but GB wins strength of victory tie-breaker since GB would have beaten SF and NE, while CHI would have only beaten CAR and MIA. Finally, say GB loses to NYG, CHI loses to NYJ. Then we win the division based on strength of victory via the win over the Jets.


    2.) GB and CHI lose two more each until the rematch, but GB wins the rematch. Again, the likely losses are GB loses to NE and NYG, CHI loses to NE and NYJ. We still win the strength of victory tie-breaker via the win-percentage of NYJ over MIA and SF over CAR.


    3.) If GB loses one less game than CHI before the rematch, then a win in the rematch decides the division winner straight up.




    Option 1) most likely imo; but it is comforting that we own most of the tiebreakers over the Bares.

    The most important game left other than the bears is this week vs the lions. If we lose to the lions we need the bears to lose to the vikes to keep us within 1 game in the divison record. Or have the bears lose one more time than us leading up to the game vs them.

    "The most important game left other than the bears is this week vs the lions."

    Yes, in the NFL each game carries 10 times the value of a major league baseball game. They're all important.
