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 2014 cause-effect issue has pretty clear: Jay Cutler throws interceptions, Bears lose. Jay Cutler goes pick-free, Bears win.
The last time they were together on a practice field actually practicing together was Sept.
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.
