The Chicago Bears move to 5-1 and take control over the NFC North.

In a game that could have summed up the Chicago Bears‘ entire season to this point, the team from the Windy City earned their second straight win over a strong team. Up until this week, most fans and experts hadn’t completely bought into Chicago’s success. But at 5-1, there aren’t many more excuses for naysayers to use.

Prior to this week though, even the most loyal Chicago fans didn’t feel great about this team. Yes, they were winning football games, but the squad still looked like a shadow of itself from 2018. The offense wasn’t producing and despite low point totals, the defense wasn’t generating turnovers as it has in years past. In a word, this team looked ugly. They were getting the job done, but they weren’t playing a pretty game by any stretch of the imagination.

After a Green Bay Packers game where Aaron Rodgers looked human for the first time all season, hope is starting to grow in the Chicago area. After struggling against the Bears, Tom Brady completely destroyed the Packers. Not only does that win give Matt Nagy’s squad confidence, but their own 3-turnover defensive performance will likely see them surge in the power rankings.

Naturally, overreactions will be flying left and right throughout social media. It’s only natural to jump to unnecessary conclusions and overhype your team after a big win… right? This is 3 Overreactions after the Chicago Bears’ Week 3 win against the Carolina Panthers.
