Chicago Bears: These were the biggest disappointments from Week 12
With all the drama that surrounded Matt Nagy and the Chicago Bears going into Week 12 against the Detroit Lions, the outcome of the game hardly calmed the choppy waters of this franchise.
Not only did the Chicago Bears barely squeak out a win against the winless Detroit Lions, but they won on a game-winning field goal against said winless Detroit Lions. That alone is enough to be disappointing to a fanbase — specifically the Chicago Bears’ fanbase.
Now, on paper, the Bears weren’t god awful. They had just under 400 yards of total offense, and the offensive line only gave up a single sack. Granted, all this needs to be taken with a grain of salt since it was against the winless Detroit Lions, but a win is a win.
You can only go up against the opponent in front of you, so they completed their weekly goal of getting a win, but a two-point win against the winless Detroit Lions would make me nervous if I were Matt Nagy. Notice a theme here on the, dare I say it again, winless Detroit Lions.
Now, it was kind of bogus for there to be a report that went out a few days before gameday that Nagy would be fired post-Thanksgiving regardless of the result, so I’m sure that was a distraction to the team — even if the team deflected it as a non-factor.
All-in-all, the Chicago Bears won the game, so there’s a least one positive.
Other than that, let’s call a spade a spade: this game was a stinker.
With that said, let’s dive into which Chicago Bears were most disappointing in Week 12 against the Detroit Lions.
