There is plenty to watch for as Chicago Bears fans this week even though it is a bye.
The Chicago Bears are a pathetic football franchise. Yet, we sit there every Sunday (or Monday/Thursday) hoping that one day they are going to finally turn it around. They are a long way away from that right now but maybe someday. They have lost five games in a row after starting the season 5-1. People dubbed them the worst 5-1 team of all time and now it all makes sense. Their offense is as bad as it has ever been which leaves their great defense out to dry.
With all of that in mind, the Bears still have a chance (whether you like it or not) to be a playoff team. They are right in the mix with the rest of the mediocre teams in the NFC. For those who are interested in that possibility, there are a few games that you need to keep an eye on this weekend.
