About this Article

The Bears' playoff hopes are still alive. Because the Minnesota Vikings already had upset the Texans in Houston earlier Sunday, a Bears loss to the Cardinals would have eliminated them from the playoffs. "We were focused on us," defensive lineman Israel Idonije said. "Everything that's going on with needing help, this and that, that's not our focus. Our focus is in-house. "What do we have to do as a team to win football games. That's it."
