What Happened to The Chicago Bears Last Sunday?
Well, my answer, in short, is bad luck and bad match-ups. The long version looks like this, Lester's near-perfect write-up over at Windy City Gridiron:
In all seriousness, the Patriots just matched up really well against the Bears. As sure as I was in the Bears beating the Eagles two weeks ago, and as sure as I was in the Bears having to really work to get out of Detroit with a win, I was sure the Bears would lose to N.E. However, I think the Bears match up really well with the last 3 opponents on the schedule. Minnesota will fight for their new coach, but the fast track will favor the Bears. The Jets don't have a consistent enough offense to bother the Bears, and the Packers have their own offensive woes.Bear down, Bears fan, and quit being such whiners (*looks at Will slyly*).
The Bears are still in the drivers seat in the NFC North, one game ahead of the Pack. The Pats will knock off Green Bay next week on Sunday Night, then they get the Giants week 16 at Lambeau. The week 17 game very well could feature the Bears resting their starters, unless a playoff home field advantage scenario is in play. Go Bears... and have I told you the Bears are F'N Awesome!!!!
