Chicago Bears

Lost: Bears 20, Minnesota Vikings 23

That sound you hear is the Bears’ annual implosion with the playoffs in view.

In a game the Bears needed to keep pace with the Lions in the playoff race, they got All-Pro performances from Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery, and still found a way to lose in overtime.

Bears fans will gladly point to Jay Cutler’s absence as a primary reason for the Bears’ current skid, but Josh McCown is still 2-2 as the Bears’ starter, and he’s not responsible for the atrocious defense.

Of course, the Bears’ playoff hunt is far from over, since they’re in pursuit of the unpredictable Lions. But all the scoreboard-watching in the world won’t matter if they can’t start pulling out wins again. And this might have been the easiest game left on the Bears’ schedule.

Next Game: 12/08 vs. Dallas (7-5)
