After being upset at the hands of the New York Giants in week 13, the Chicago Bears now face the Los Angeles Rams, a team that has established itself as a perennial Super Bowl Contender. In fact, this is easily the Bears biggest test this season.
While the Chicago Bears showed toughness and resiliency against the Giants, ultimately, they weren’t able to get the job done. To win the NFC North, the Bears will likely need to win two more games and Chicago could capture the NFC North, something this franchise has not done since 2010. In fact, since 2000, the Bears have only won the NFC North four different times (2001, 2005, 2006, and 2010) and have finished in third place or lower six of the last seven seasons.
As the Bears get ready to welcome the Rams to town, the Bears will once again need to be resilient and play with toughness to prove to the rest of the NFL that they belong in the NFL.
Each week, we’ll be previewing the Bears regular season matchup. Additionally, we’ll examine what the Bears must do to win. What are the key players on the opposing team that the Bears will need to stop? Each week, will the offense or defense make a bigger impact?
