The end game will overshadow the middle game but the Bears (6-1) didnt so much defeat the Carolina Panthers (1-6) as escape them.
A mantra of the Bears is their focus on cleaning some things up, whether assignments, procedures, techniques or whatever.
According to the stat experts at Pro Football Focus, the Bears offensive line has improved from laughingstock to No. 22 overall. The group is ranked No.
Call it a workmanlike effort, nothing special, except that it was good enough to win.
The Bears and Detroit Lions dont like each other very much. No surprise there; nobody much likes the Lions and their sometimes miscreant ways.
