The reality is, it’s much easier to find things to write about a team with problems than a 4-1 club coming off a dominating win. I’m not complaining!
Going into bye weekend, figured I’d post a heartwarming stat. Reason being, it has been 2006 since the Chicago Bears defense has been in this territory. And also, Lovie Smith’s defenses are not known to dominate statistically, because his base defense will give up yards by design. So these numbers are downright exciting. Bears defense overall NFL ranking:
Rushing Defense: 2
Passing Defense: 14
Total Yards: 5
Scoring allowed: 3
The Bears may not be playing this weekend, but it would be great to see Green Bay and Minnesota lose, would it not?
