The Chicago Bears have largely underwhelmed this season. After a 12-4 season last year, Chicago is just 6-6 so far in 2019. Naturally, this slow start has certainly hurt the Bears' chances of making the postseason.

Odds of Bears Making Playoffs

According to Football Outsiders, Chicago only has a 3.6 percent chance to make the playoffs.

The Bears are tied for the 17th-best Super Bowl odds (+25000), according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and Chicago is +12000 to win the NFC North.

Chicago's most realistic shot at a playoff berth is by securing a Wild Card spot, but the Bears are four games back of the 10-2 San Francisco 49ers and two games back of the 8-4 Minnesota Vikings. Chicago would likely need a lot of help to get into the postseason.

The Bears almost certainly need to run the table to have a realistic shot at making the playoffs. With four upcoming games against current playoff teams in the Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs and Vikings, that could prove easier said than done.

Barring some sort of miracle resurgence over the final four weeks of the year, Chicago will likely be on the outside looking in come January. But crazier things have happened.
