Hard to imagine, but here are the positives from the Chicago Bears loss to Lions

The Chicago Bears lost a close one to the Detroit Lions this past Sunday, with a final score of 30-34. It seems now that the team’s chances to make the playoffs are slim, and all eyes point to everyone involved higher up in the organization for blame. 

It’s a gloomy time to cheer for the Bears. The defense looks beat, as they’ve given up 37.5 PPG in their last two outings. For context, they had only allowed 20.9 PPG in the first 10 games of the season.

The team also invested too heavily into assets such as Robert Quinn instead of fixing this offense. The move to trade for Nick Foles also failed. Nothing seems to be going right, and there doesn’t appear to be any short-term solutions.

Not all is completely lost, however. Despite an ugly 5-7 record, the team is still technically in the hunt for a playoff spot. The Bears offense, led by Mitch Trubisky, has begun to play slightly better. There’s plenty of positives to take away despite the abundant amount of negatives.

In fact, there’s plenty to take away from Sunday’s loss to the Lions, both in regards to the 2020 season and the long term success of the Bears. It may be only a few good things, but for a team that seems to be spiraling out of control, being able to take away anything positive should be considered a good thing.
