Bears vs. Cowboys: Time, TV schedule and how to watch online

Bryan Perez

The Chicago Bears are still alive.

After Week 13's win over the Detroit Lions, the Bears evened their record at 6-6 while receiving most of the help they needed around the league on Sunday (and Monday night) to maintain a playoff pulse, even if it's a weak one.

Coupled with a Vikings, Eagles and Panthers loss, Chicago's playoff chances moved from 2% to 3%. And while that's hardly the kind of uptick to suggest a January game is likely, it's still better than the alternative.

Up next on the Bears' schedule are the Dallas Cowboys (6-6), who control their own destiny for an NFC East title. But if they stumble down the stretch, they too will be a direct threat to Chicago for the final NFC wild-card spot. It's a must-win for the Bears, which is a theme that will repeat itself every week from here on out.

The odds certainly are stacked against the Bears. Think about it: for Chicago to win a Super Bowl in 2019, they have to win their final four games of the regular season as well as the wild-card, divisional round, NFC Championship and Super Bowl. They have to finish the year 8-0.

Crazier things have happened in sports. You gotta believe.
