3 teams the Chicago Bears could replace in the 2023-24 NFL playoffs

The Chicago Bears aren't in the 2023 NFL playoffs, but there are a handful of teams this Bears team would be more fun to watch play than. Three teams, to be exact.

While the Chicago Bears' next game isn't until later in the year— like much later in the year— there are a few teams in the 2023-24 NFL playoffs who really don't play an enjoyable game of football. Now, the same could be said about the Chicago Bears, but the argument could be made that they're more fun to watch than at least a few teams in the playoffs currently.

Though the Bears ended last in the NFC North, it was a close race.

The Lions won the division with a record of 12-5, then the Packers at 9-8. To wrap it up, the Vikings and Bears ended 7-10.

The Chicago Bears would be entertaining in the 2023-24 NFL playoffs

While their record says otherwise, there are few teams that this Chicago Bears could replace in the 2023-24 NFL playoffs that would result in more entertaining games.

With the massive debate that Florida State brought to the sports media landscape recently, the question of "Most deserving vs. Most entertaining" was brought to the forefront.

And though the Bears likely don't live in the "Most deserving" category, they could set up shop in the "Most entertaining" category. Well, at their bestcategory they could.

Now, the Chicago Bears are only one season removed from getting a natural first-overall draft selection, so to say they should be a playoff team isn't that realistic. Sure, the Houston Texans did it, but— deservedly so— it's being noted as a Coach of the Year-worthy job by DeMeco Ryans.

Let's just say Matt Eberflus' job this year hasn't necessarily been Coach of the Year-worthy, but the Chicago Bears' play is playoff-worthy.

At least in comparison to some of the teams in the 2023-24 NFL playoffs.
