The Chicago Bears hurt themselves by winning their football game on Sunday.
Going into the game, it was fair to say that it is better if the Chicago Bears just lose out. They want to have as good of a draft position as they can get. After losing a heartbreaker in shocking fashion last week to the Detroit Lions, it felt like their playoff hopes were gone. The worst thing you can do is have an 8-8 record and miss the playoffs. The Bears are on track to be doing that this year. Winning this game against the Houston Texans hurts more than it helps.
There will be people who are excited about this win. They looked like the team that was dominant in 2018 and won the NFC North Division. Mitchell Trubisky was good along with the rest of the offense and the defense was awesome. The fact of the matter is that all of this came against a Houston Texans team that is so much worse than them.
