With today's win over the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears are back in the playoffs and NFC North champions for the first time since 2010. It was a special moment for the Bears players, but one player made it especially memorable after the game.

Bears offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr. made the bold decision to propose to his girlfriend at the middle of Soldier Field - and she said yes.

Following the game, Leno was asked whether he still would have proposed had the Bears lost, to which he replied in the affirmative.

"I knew we would win," he told reporters, according to Sports Illustrated.

Strangely, Leno would not reveal where it was he hid the ring, but said it was hidden in a "very safe place."

The Bears beat the Packers, 24-17, thanks to five sacks on Aaron Rodgers - 2.5 of which came from star pass rusher Khalil Mack and another 2.0 from rookie sensation Leonard Floyd.
