This game decides Bears playoff hopes and possibly coach Lovie Smith's future, although no reputable source has gone on record saying GM Phil Emery is definitely replacing the Bears coach if they fail to get into the playoffs.
The Bears look to keep dwindling playoff hopes alive with a win in Arizona, where they have not played since the infamous Monday Night Meltdown in 2006 where then-Cardinals coach Dennis Green made history with his post-game tirade.
Playoff hopes for the Bears have now dwindled to only a wild card following their 21-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday. The Bears no longer control their own fate. It's a collapse from 7-1 to now being 8-6 and outside of the playoff picture.
