It’s hard to believe that just a little over a month ago, this game carried with some significance in that it probably would’ve helped Chicago cement a no. 5 playoff seed and set up a possible NFC championship rematch with the Green Bay Packers.
Now, the Bears are playing for little more than pride and not finishing with a losing record.
Injuries seem to be the most mentioned reason for the losing five straight games since streaking to 7-3 over the course of October and November. But even with those injuries, the Bears were in some pretty winnable games and due to some small lapse in execution found themselves on the losing side.
Change a few plays around and things would probably be looking very different for the Chicago Bears right now.
