Time for redemption for the Chicago Bears?

The Chicago Bears have had a tough second half of the season, but the Vikings haven’t been much better. Minnesota is 2-2 in the last four games they have played. The two losses came against the Cowboys and the Buccaneers. There two wins were against the Panthers and the Jaguars. In those two games, they beat the Panthers by one point and Jacksonville by three (Overtime).

With a win over the Vikings, the Bears would sit with a record of 7-7. Anticipating they beat the Jaguars, they would then be 8-7. Then they get to play against Green Bay and possible future MVP Aaron Rodgers. The last time wasn’t so pretty and any realistic fan could have told you that would have happened.

This time around might be different. Trubisky got some confidence in the win over the Texans and looks to be earning back the locker room. If they win the next two games, the Bears would have much-needed momentum facing the future NFC North champs. It could be a close one at Soldier Field. If they do lose against Greenbay, the Bears would finish the year with a disappointing 8-8 record. Not bad enough to get a top-10 pick but just good enough to be a game outside of the playoffs.

All you need to do is make the playoffs. Once postseason hits, anything could happen.
