The Chicago Bears (3-0) are now one in a few teams in the NFL that have yet to lose a game.
They were fortunate enough to squeeze past the Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys, and Green Bay packers these first few weeks to remain undefeated.
However, following the last two wins, much hype has accumulated regarding the Bear—the question is whether or not the Bears won by luck or if they have an intimidating team of talent.
The Bears overcame so much during this game and managed to come out on top of the Lions.
For starters, they had over 10 incomplete passes but still managed to get more first downs and total yards than the Lions, with a total of 463 in comparison to the Lions 168 total yards.
Although the offensive line impressed, defense struggled and pulled in number lower than the Lions in defensive plays.
In the midst of Week 2, the Bears’ O-line did not perform as well as the first week.
In fact, their stats at the end of the game were lower than Dallas’ offense.
After observing their defensive line, it can be noted that their defense can perform and perhaps played a major role in this victory.
Monday night’s game was probably the worst for the Bears this season.
Granted, they did not completely choke; their total yards and first downs had decreased.
The defense also came up short of satisfactory, especially in comparison to the Packers.
However, with the last four seconds on the clock, they managed to pull it off with a field goal.
The Bears now hold the first and fifth ranking in overall passing yards and opposing rushing yards, respectively.
They are also ranked 29th in overall rushing yards and 28th in opposing passing yards.
Although the Bears have not shown to be consistent in performance on the field—the ranks and wins speak differently.
