If you look at opponent’s winning percentage, the Bears appear to have the toughest schedule on the way out, facing an average winning percentage of 0.440, as compare to .380 for the Packers and .320 for the Lions.  The Bears face three winning teams in their final 8 games  -the  Lions, Cowboys and Packers, but the good news is that all of those games are at home.  The Bears’ four road games are all against mediocre to just plain bad teams – the Rams, Vikings, Browns and Eagles.
