Chicago Bears fans, buckle up. It is about to become a reality. The next two weeks will tell us everything we need to know about this team and the results of the Bears this year.
In Week 13, the Bears meet the best team in football, the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals may also accept Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins back to the field, so their offense should hit all cylinders.
Believe it or not, the Bears are unlikely to be eliminated NFC Playoff Race. In fact, this game could be the game that completely turns the season around.
What would change to make it possible for the Bears to do the impossible on Sunday?
Honestly, I don’t know at all.
The Chicago Bears are still not out of the NFC Playoff hunt, and a win on Sunday could change the game.
Coming up to Week 13, here’s the position of the current NFC playoff leaderboard.
NFC Playoff images:
The Arizona Cardinals (9-2)
Green Bay Packers (9-3)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-3)
Dallas Cowboys (7-4)
Los Angeles Rams (7-4)
San Francisco 49ers (6-5)
Washington football team (5-6)
You have read correctly. Currently, the 7th seed is being usurped by the team with a losing record. This season, parity has been at the highest of all time, and it is working in favor of many teams. Now, this is where things get very interesting.
During the hunt:
Minnesota Vikings (5-6)
Atlanta Falcons (5-6)
New Orleans Saints (5-6)
Philadelphia Eagles (5-7)
Carolina Panthers (5-7)
New York Giants (4-7)
Chicago Bears (4-7)
Seattle Seahawks (3-8)
Sure, the Bears are just one game out of the knockout stages, but so are the other seven teams. This season has truly been one of the weirdest in recent memory. There’s so much football left to play, and nearly every team in the league still has a chance to make things happen after the season.
This week, the Vikings play a split match against the Detroit Lions, who are still looking for their first win. Ignore a team that is desperate for a victory milestone. Minnesota has also played most of the close games, whether they’re up against good or bad opponents. They are quite capable of blowing this one up.
The Falcons host the Bucs, so go ahead and prepare a game for Tampa Bay. They will be 5-7 next Monday.
The Saints started the week on Thursday night against a standout Dallas Cowboys team who were about to experience a heartbreaking Thanksgiving loss during overtime. Give that to Dallas.
The Eagles attend the New York Jets, so don’t count on Philly helping the Bears this week. It must have been a relatively easy victory for the Eagles.
Carolina goodbye. The Giants They’re up against the Miami Dolphins that have won three games in a row. New York could very well drop this price, depending on whether Daniel Jones shows up on Sunday.
Now, we return to the Bears. How the hell could they defeat the Cardinals? Again, that’s a question no one has an answer to. It will likely have to be a grueling game for Kyler Murray, who is coming back from an ankle injury, combined with a wobbly game for the Arizona defence.
Maybe we see Justin Fields play his best game. That might be what it turns out to be. Between him and David Montgomery, the Bears will have to control the clock when committing crimes. That means doing something they’re not too good at – converting the third drop.
If the Bears can control the clock on Sunday and somehow manage to face Murray on a regular basis, maybe, just maybe, we’ll see a miracle happen and the Bears win 5-7.
