I don't know if anyone else has noticed this but to finish with a winning record we must win the SB. If we beast Chicago our record goes to 9-9. Just at 500. If we then lose the NFC championship, we would be under 500 at 9-10. Then when we win the NFC championship our record would be 10-9. A loss in the SB we are at 10-10. So for a winning record we have to win the Super Bowl.
