Well, the Chicago Bears lost aga— wait a minute… 

This is not a drill, people: The Chicago Bears won a prime-time Monday Night Football game against Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.

The Bears really did it.

Are the 2018 Chicago Bears back? Are the Bears Super Bowl bound?

By a score of 33-14, the Chicago Bears won their first-ever game in Foxborough vs the New England Patriots.

What a statement win for the Bears, too, might I add.

Had Belichick won this game, he’d have passed George Halas in overall wins, so not giving him that against the Bears is a rather cool moment in history.

This was the first time since probably 2018 that it was fun watching the Chicago Bears play football. Not only did they win, but they won in a dominant fashion, too.

Oh, and they won in dominant fashion against one of the best head coaches of all time, Bill Belichick.

It seems Belichick was telling the truth when he went on for seven minutes gushing over the Chicago Bears prior to playing them.

You’re right, Bill. The Chicago Bears are “a really impressive group” with a lot of promising young players. And you’re also right about Justin Fields being a “major threat every time he touches the ball.”

This might’ve been the best Chicago Bears win since maybe 2018.

The Mitchell Trubisky six-touchdown performance against Brady will be hard to top, but since the end of the Nagy era, this has to be one of the most enjoyable games that the Bears have produced.

So, with all that out of the way, what are this week’s top overreactions after a commanding victory over Bill Belichick and the Patriots in their own house?

Great question, truly. Let’s get to it.
