The Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers both won on Sunday to move to 5-2, meaning a two-game edge on the Bears with nine games to play.
The pattern isn’t new: win at turnovers, win at football.
The Bears couldn’t beat a wobbling Carolina Panthers team. The Detroit Lions couldn’t overcome Kyle Orton and the Buffalo Bills at home.
More than a few Bears fans would have preferred that the 2009 trade that brought Jay Cutler to Chicago never happened. Whether one of those was Cutler himself, hard to say.
