Week 11: Chicago Bears vs. Baltimore Ravens

The Bears then head back home to face Lamar Jackson and the Ravens, who have a scary roster on both sides of the football. Chicago keeps it relatively close, but Jackson ends up being too much for them in the end. Baltimore’s defense also gives Fields his “welcome to the NFL” game, as the Bears rookie tosses a couple of picks and experiences his worst game of the season.

Ravens beat Bears 27-20 (6-4)

Week 12: Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving

Bouncing back from an ugly performance against Baltimore, Fields will have plenty to be thankful for after this one. The Bears run away with a Thanksgiving victory — literally — as Fields tops the 100-yard mark on the ground, paired with two rushing touchdowns. Chicago puts themselves in strong position to work towards a Wildcard berth, here.

Bears beat Lions 41-13 (7-4)

Week 13: Chicago Bears vs. Arizona Cardinals

After an enormous victory on Thanksgiving, the Bears come back down to earth in only the type of fashion the Bears can do. Fields experiences some rookie growing pains, and attempts to lead the Bears down the field one last time in the fourth quarter. However, Chicago gets stopped on a late fourth down and the Cardinals pull off the win.

Week 14: Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers on SNF

It doesn’t get easier after the Bears fell to Arizona. They get another prime time game, but in one of the toughest places to play in all of football: Lambeau Field on Sunday Night Football. Rodgers typically doesn’t lose to the same team twice in one year, so he does enough to get the Packers the win. The Bears now face a do-or-die stretch late in the year.

Packers beat Bears 30-24 (7-6)

Week 15: Chicago Bears vs. Minnesota Vikings on MNF

In their second-straight prime time game and a must-win scenario, the Bears host Minnesota in the teams’ first meeting of the season. This game starts out close, but ultimately the defense picks off Kirk Cousins twice in the second half and Chicago’s offense rolls behind a strong showing from their rookie quarterback.
