While Monty did have an impressive list of facts to support his assertion that the Bears are merely lucky, one detail he failed to delve into was the last meeting between the two team.

Week 17, the final week of the season. The Bears already had a first-round bye locked up and although they could have gotten the top seed in the NFC, a lot of unlikely events would have had to happen in order for this to come through.

The Green Bay Packers however had to win the game in order to grab the six-seed. This was a must win game that they had the benefit of hosting at Lambeau Field. The final score of the game: 10-3 Packers win.
