This could be great news for the Packers and not-so-great news for the Bears…

Since 1990, the Green Bay Packers are 18-5 (.783 winning percentage) in their final regular season game of the season. That is the best record in the NFL. The worst record? The Chicago Bears, who are 7-16 (.304 winning percentage) in their final game of the season from 1990-2012. The Packers have won their final game of the season 17 of 19 times since 1994.

Looking at the other winner-take-all game on Sunday, the NFC East battle between the Cowboys and Eagles, the numbers favor a Philadelphia victory. The Eagles are 13-10 in their last game of the season since 1990, while the Cowboys are 8-15.
