The Chicago Bears are taking on the Buffalo Bills for a Christmas Eve matchup between one of the best teams in the NFL and one of the worst teams in the NFL.
The Buffalo Bills are 11-3 with legit aspirations of making it to the Super Bowl. On the flip side, the Chicago Bears are 3-11 and could end up with a top-three pick in the draft.
So the game is going to be close to 0 degrees, the Bears are terrible, and the Bills could blow them away when it comes to the final score.
Why would anyone want to tune into this game if they don’t just love all football in general? Well, if you are a Bears fan, there are plenty of reasons to do it.
There are three really good reasons to watch the Chicago Bears game this week.
1. Competing With Good Teams
The Chicago Bears are a very bad team. However, they have somewhat shown the ability to stay with some of the best teams in the league. They have a win over the San Francisco 49ers and they only lost to the Philadelphia Eagles by five. Those are the two best teams in the NFC.
The third-best team in the NFC is the Minnesota Vikings who the Bears only lost to by seven and they had a lead in the game for most of it.
Now, with another good team on the other side, it will be interesting to see how the Chicago Bears play in this one.
2. Justin Fields
Justin Fields has taken some shots this season because of the fact that he has no offensive line and limited weapons to work with. However, he is the third quarterback in the history of the NFL to reach 1000 rushing yards in a single season which is very impressive.
Fields needs to average 68.8 yards per game the rest of the way to break Lamar Jackson’s single-season record for the most rushing yards in a single season by a quarterback. He is incredibly fun to watch and a reason to watch every single Bears game.
3. Watching the Buffalo Bills
You might not be a Buffalo Bills fan but football is awesome. The Buffalo Bills play football really well. They have one of the best quarterbacks in the world, some amazing receivers, and an awesome defense.
Josh Allen is a treat to watch every single game that he plays. He is right there with Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow for the title of the best quarterback in the NFL. The Bears have faced some good ones this year and Allen is right there near the top.
Allen is also someone who can make the Bears feel good about Justin Fields. He fell in his draft a little bit and went behind a few quarterbacks that are significantly worse than him. He also took some time to become elite in the NFL. All of these things also apply to Fields.
This game might not be pretty because of the winter weather but it is still going to be fun to watch for a variety of reasons. We can only hope that Justin Fields plays well but the Bears maintain their current 2023 NFL Draft status.
