For the second consecutive game, I wrote the reaction post starting at halftime.  This time, a 42-0 deficit to their biggest rivals, the Green Bay Packers, in prime time resulted in a 55-14 loss.  The Bears dropped their record to 3-6 and the death march was on in full.  At this point it became clear that changes would be coming and it was just a matter of time.

The Bears managed to get back in the Win column with a 21-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings, but questions still lingered.  You know, like the stench of the season.

The Bears put together back-to-back home wins with an unimpressive 21-13 win over Lovie Smith and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The Bears rallied from a 10-0 halftime deficit to stifle the Bucs in the second half.  No one on offense was particularly impressive, but the defense did Lovie proud in a tribute to their former coach.  Lance Briggs suffered a leg injury that ended his season and likely his Bears career.

Happy Thanksgiving!  The Lions were thankful for a visit from the pathetic Chicago Bears as Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford lit up the Bears defense to rally to a 34-17 win.  The Bears led 14-3 at the end of the first quarter, but it was all downhill from there.
