Just a few weeks ago the Chicago Bears sat at 0-3 and looking into a disaster of a season. Now just two weeks later, the Bears have the chance to get to .500 and pull within a half game of a Wild Card spot in the NFC.
The opponent this week is the winless Detroit Lions, who have been one of the NFL’s biggest disappointments after reaching the playoffs last year. With all of the talent on the Lions offense, it’s a shock that they are winless this year. Yet they are still not a team to just roll over as this week’s game won’t be easy for the Bears.
With the chance to head into the bye week winning three in a row and sitting at .500, it could be the start of a turnaround season. Especially when many see this season as a rebuilding year in Chicago.
