No one on the Chicago Bears qualifies as having their stock down after this victory.
The offensive line allowed more pressure than preferred, but that is what the Lions do. Braxton Jones and Darnell Wright had their hands full when they faced Aidan Hutchinson. They also had their wins against him.
The run defense could have played better. The Lions had some big runs. It was nothing that would have cost the game.
Offensive coordinator Luke Getsy drew the ire of the fanbase for the crazy number of screens he called for in the Bears’ last game. He called a solid game this time around.
The Bears’ first score of the game came on a well-designed trick play that sprung Moore for a touchdown run.
The Chicago Bears are now 4-3 since they started the season 0-4. You can shockingly consider them in the hunt for a playoff spot.
You have to wonder how this finish to the season will impact the futures of Eberflus and Fields. If they somehow miraculously make the playoffs, you have to think they both will return next season.
Fields coming back might not be detrimental to the franchise’s future. Eberflus coming back will. We can discuss that on another day.
The Bears have a good chance to win against the Cardinals and Falcons at home. Going to Cleveland and Green Bay and picking up wins will not be easy. The Browns defense is darn good and made Fields’ life miserable in his first career start. The Packers are playing great football right now, especially quarterback Jordan Love.
Right now, let’s just enjoy a dominant victory over the NFC North leader in the standings.
