Through the first nine weeks of the NFL season, the Chicago Bears looked like one of the top Super Bowl contenders in the league. After kicking off the season with a 41-21 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, they hit a bump in the road with a loss against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

After that Week 2 loss, the Bears went on to win six consecutive games, including two games in which they scored 41 and 51 points. Their defense was playing at an all-pro level, forcing turnovers and scoring touchdowns at will.

However, after a Week 10 meeting against the Houston Texans and a Jay Cutler concussion that forced him to miss the second half and the following game, the Bears seemed to have hit a slump.
