The kickoff for the Green Bay Packers game against the Minnesota Vikings was flexed to 3:25 p.m., which means the Bears fate won't be immediately known.
"Uh, I hadn't gotten that far. There are a lot of other things that have priority before it. We will be interested," Smith said. "All of that goes with us taking care of business first. So we're just going to concentrate on that.
"We hadn't made any decisions like that."
Because they've squandered a 7-1 start, the Bears need to beat the Lions at Ford Field then hope that the Packers can defeat the Vikings at Mall of America Field in Minneapolis.
Otherwise, the Bears season will be over.
The Bears can hop on a flight right after their game, though, if they don't beat the Lions. There's no scenario in which the Bears can finish 9-7 and still make the playoffs.
The Lions are a mess right now, losing seven consecutive games, including all five in the division. They also are just 2-5 at home.
So if the Bears don't beat the Lions, then they most certainly don't deserve entry into the postseason.
