The regular season is coming to an end, and the Chicago Bears will play their last game in front of the home fans at Soldier Field. This game doesn’t particularly mean anything in the big picture, as the Bears are currently sitting at 3-13.
On top of the circumstances, the Bears are dealing with a crazy number of injuries, at pretty much every position. Just this week, Justin Fields was ruled out with soreness and both Teven Jenkins and Michael Schofield were placed on IR.
As hard to watch as it might be, the Bears offense is going to be led by backup quarterback Nathan Peterman behind a makeshift of inexperienced and out of position offensive lineman. Not exactly a recipe for success.
The Chicago Bears aren’t playing for much in the season finale, but it is still going to be interesting seeing how this group meshes together.
And that is just the offensive side of the ball. Defensively, Eddie Jackson, Jaylon Johnson, Kindle Vildor, and Josh Blackwell are on IR. Jaylon Jones is also out, and rookie Kyler Gordon is questionable. Long story short, this came could get out of hand, and fast.
With many starters out and a boatload of unexperienced players across positions groups, it’s not going to be easy for the Bears to stay in this game. With all of this accounted for, here are 3 bold predictions for the Bears season finale against the Vikings.
