Chargers vs. Chiefs TNF Open Thread

It’s a battle at the top of the AFC West tonight as the 10-3 Los Angeles Chargers visit the 11-2 Kansas City Chiefs. L.A. still has a shot at the division title, but the Chiefs would hold the tie breaker if the ended up even after week 17. However, a Chiefs win tonight will lock up the division and guarantee them a first round bye.

The Chiefs have been a fun team to watch this year, not only because they are absolutely rolling on offense, but because they have a similar scheme to what...

As Good As It Gets: Have the Bears Found Trubisky’s Ceiling?

Can the Bears count on Trubisky to get the to the next level? Probably. More importantly, he is in the best possible situation to develop.

A countless number of electrons are inconvenienced every year in the form of “virtual ink,” trying to assess the progress of new quarterbacks in the NFL. With the Chicago Bears on the verge of the playoffs, it’s only reasonable to wonder if Trubisky is an asset to the Bears or if he is going to be a piece that holds them back. While it probably is...

Bears Blither-Blather: Packers Week

Patti and Jeff preview Packers Week in a back and forth exchange

Patti Curl: Let’s start with a riddle. Two teams are on the ground floor of what will become the greatest sports league in America. Endless possibilities and a storied rivalry lie before them. One team takes as its team name and mascot the greatest animal to ever grace the earth with its presence.

What does the other team do?

Jeff Berckes: Oh, I love riddles! As every human learns at an early age, the greatest animal ever is...

Week 15 Game Preview: Bears vs. Packers

Can the Bears end their home losing streak to the Packers?

The Chicago Bears have lost nine straight home games to the Packers, including the playoffs, since 2010.

Go back even further and they have won just two of their last 12 meetings at Soldier Field against the Packers in the last ten years.

That’s brutal, however, the last time the Bears made the playoffs, back in 2010, was when they last defeated their no. 1 rival.

Once again the Bears can beat the Packers, clinch the division and...

Game film at a fancy dinner? All part of Kyle Fuller’s preparation that's led to an NFL-leading 7 INTs in 9 games

Kyle Fuller called it “trying to multitask,” which is a nice way to explain away an addiction to a personal electronic device.

But the Bears cornerback may have a better excuse — and more concrete evidence of the benefits — than the average person endlessly scrolling on a mobile phone.

Bears playoff picture: Week 15 scenarios and your guide to scoreboard watching (and rooting)

Not only did the Bears springboard themselves toward the playoffs on Sunday by beating the NFC-leading Rams, they got help from four — yes, four — other results in the conference.

The Bears and Packers have reversed roles. Can the Bears keep the upper hand for years to come?

The Bears and Packers account for the most bittersweet of sports rivalries. It has been bitter for the Bears and far too sweet for far too long for the Packers.

Eddie Goldman the unsung hero of Chicago Bears’ defense

People love watching sacks, TFLs, and other highlights. Eddie Goldman is the man helping to make all that happen in Chicago.

In football, life in the trenches can truly go unappreciated. For every sack, strip sack, tackle for loss, and other big plays; the big men on the defensive line are doing the dirty work. It’s always a treat when the big nasties get their crack at a big play; yet from my experience and observations, some of the biggest plays aren’t shown in the highlight film....

5 things we heard about Mitch Trubisky on Wednesday: The root of his inaccuracy against the Rams, his improved decision-making on RPOs and more

Here are five things we heard about Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky from media sessions Wednesday at Halas Hall.

1. After Trubisky reviewed his inaccurate throwing in Sunday’s win over the Rams, he thought he let the juice of his return from a two-game absence get the best of him.

The issue wasn’t...

Chicago Bears Sackwatch 2018: Week 14 vs. Los Angeles Rams

The sack allowed this week by the Bears is not what you thought when watching it live.

After giving up nine sacks the previous two weeks with back up quarterback Chase Daniel starting, the Chicago Bears only allowed one on Sunday night against the ferocious pass rush of the Los Angeles Rams. There’s no denying that Mitchell Trubisky’s athleticism helps the pass protection out, not only because of his ability to scramble, but also because of the threat of him as a scrambler.

Bears place CB Bryce Callahan on IR

Bryce Callahan‘s season is over. On Wednesday, the Bears placed the slot cornerback on injured reserve.  Callahan broke a bone in his foot during Sunday’s huge win over the Rams. Initially, the Bears were keeping their fingers crossed for a quick recovery, but further tests revealed that he’ll need more time to heal. Callahan isn’t a household name, but he has been stellar for Chicago this year. Through 14 weeks, he ranks as Pro Football Focus’ No. 11-ranked corner in the league,...
