Bears fans and media analysts will require much more concrete evidence before they're ready to subscribe to the idea that the offense has finally found itself, that a long-awaited breakthrough is occurring, that Mitchell Trubisky has made a significant leap.
MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Vikings wanted to keep Dalvin Cook fresh for the final stretch of their race for the playoffs, concerned about an …
The Bears defense has allowed an average of just 20.9 points through 10 games, ranking sixth in the NFL and keeping Chicago in just about every game this season.

At this point, none of the tweaks or major changes the Bears have made to their offense in 2020 have produced different results than the mess that ruined 2019.
The Bears have a bye this week, and that will give Nick Foles nearly two weeks to recover before the next game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Nov. 29.
