The Chicago Bears are back in action following their bye week, and recently these post-bye games have not been kind to them. The last time the Bears won their first game after a bye was in 2013 when they beat the Green Bay Packers 27-20 at Lambeau Field. Josh McCown was the starting quarterback for that one.
This year, Chicago has the sensational sophomore quarterback Justin Fields and will face the 12-1 Philadelphia Eagles at Soldier Field.
The Eagles come into this game as the top seed in the NFC, leading the league in sacks and interceptions. Quarterback Jalen Hurts is in the MVP conversation, and they are seen as the most likely team to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
A lot has to go right for the 3-10 Bears to have a chance of winning this game, but ‘any given Sunday’ is still the mantra and the beauty of the NFL. So let’s look at what the Bears must do to end their six-game losing streak.
