||San Diego Chargers||3-10||.527|
||San Francisco 49ers||4-9||.531|
||New Orleans Saints||5-8||.512|
|11||St. Louis Rams||5-8||.524|
* - The Bears are 2-7 in the NFC while the Rams are 4-5 giving the Bears the earlier pick. Tiebreakers are strength of schedule > conference record > division record > coin flip
