These 3 Bears deserve game balls despite Week 11 loss to Falcons

Another week, another tough loss for the Chicago Bears. Some fans, seeing the big picture, take comfort in that the Bears now hold the third overall pick in the 2023 draft, which could bring a blue-chip prospect to Chicago or be traded for a King’s ransom. But no matter how you view it, the worst part of Sunday for the Chicago Bears was the injury to quarterback Justin Fields.

Hopefully, it’s nothing major, but Fields did say the pain was pretty bad. I’m sure we’ll get a clearer picture later this week, but for now, let’s look at three Bears who earned a game ball this week.

While he didn’t get a touchdown this week after posting five in three games, tight end Cole Kmet had himself yet another highlight reel catch. Like Fields, Kmet has silenced most of his critics over the past five weeks and is playing his way into a handsome contract extension with the Bears. With the chemistry he’s building with Fields, Kmet could be an invaluable building block for the franchise.
