Chicago Bears

4 takeaways from Bears’ humiliating Week 17 loss to Lions

After playing the Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills tough in Weeks 15 and 16, Chicago Bears fans were optimistic entering Week 17’s game against the Lions in Detroit. The logic behind that optimism was sound. If the Bears can compete against two of the NFL’s top contenders, they’d at the very least keep Sunday’s contest against the Lions close.

Uh, no.

The Bears lost 41-10 in one of the most lopsided defeats in recent Bears history. Blame for the loss belongs to the offense and defense in equal parts. Any positive vibes fans felt Sunday morning were sacked away by the afternoon.

Here are the four biggest takeaways from the Chicago Bears’ Week 17 loss to the Detroit Lions.
