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.

The Marc Trestman Bears started well against the AFC, with a 4-0 mark against the AFC North in 2013. Then they suffered that opening-day upset at home against the Buffalo Bills.
The ongoing Adrian Peterson saga has taken another turn.
