The Chicago Bears will once again look to get their first NFC North victory with head coach Matt Eberflus and general manager Matt Eberflus as they will play the Minnesota Vikings on the road tonight.
For all the emphasis that Poles placed on the Bears taking back the NFC North during his introductory press conference, the team has yet to win a divisional game during his tenure.
For three and half quarters last week, it appeared that the Bears were going to break their losing streak against division rivals as they were leading the Detroit Lions 26-14 with 4:15 remaining in the fourth quarter. 17 unanswered points by the Lions later and the Bears had one of their worst losses in team history.
Monday’s game against the Vikings will serve as an opportunity for the Bears to right the ship or, more likely, mark one game closer until Eberflus is fired at the end of the season.
