Are The Chicago Bears Good Enough To Get To The Playoffs?
Heading into week seven with a 5-1 record usually gets you much more hyped than this year’s Chicago Bears team. And there is a good reason for that. Despite their record, there seemed to be a suspicion that a mixture of insane luck and an easy schedule got the Bears to this point, and it was borne out on Thursday Night Football.

Their porous defense will eventually be exposed. They’ve gotten lucky in several games.There’s truth to all that, of course. The cumulative record of the five teams beaten by Seattle is 9-20.
