Bears | Could rest starters in Week 16
Thu, 19 Dec 2013 15:09:16 -0800
The Chicago Bears may be faced with a situation where they could rest some of their starters in Week 16 against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night. If the Detroit Lions lose to the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bears' game won't matter much in the grand scheme. The Bears and Packers would decide the division in Week 17 regardless of what happens to the Bears in Week 16. "Winning does take us to a different place in terms of potential seeding, which is critically important," head coach Marc Trestman said. "That's enough to reason out how we would play the game. Now could that change? Certainly. But right now we're focused on winning a game."
