After a spectacular upset of the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving, your Chicago Bears are hoping to up their odds at making the playoffs with a strong showing against a struggling San Francisco 49er’s team who have yet to win on the road.
The Bears are hoping to spark their running game after rolling the Packers for 168 yards and are looking to split time between Matt Forte and rookie Jeremy Langford.
“I wish we could get more plays in a game, so both those guys could get more touches,” offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. “Both of those guys splitting the load like that, we can keep them fresh and … we should only get better from here on out and those guys will get in the flow of it. You don’t want to have three-and-outs where they’re kind of in and out. You want to try to give them a little rhythm and you need to have an 8-to-12-play drive for that to happen.”

In the end, a loss is a loss, but the 17-15 loss to the Denver Broncos this weekend showed that they have the defense to be able to hold down a powerful team such as the Broncos, but the offense and play calling need much improvement.
With a fourth and goal on the four yard line, the Bears coaching staff decided to go for it and ended up turning it over in the end zone and the Broncos ended up winning by two points.
“I think we hadn’t made many trips down there, and when we had, we hadn’t scored touchdowns,” Head Coach John Fox said in post game comments. ” It had been kind of a field-goal game. At that point in the game, we felt that was going to be maybe our last opportunity so we were aggressive and came up short on fourth-and-four”
The Bears have little time to reflect on their decision as they have a quick turnaround and play again this Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, against the Green Bay Packers (7-3) at Lambeau Field.
The next home game is scheduled for December 9th against the San Francisco 49ers. Get your tickets to the game and be a part of the action! Plenty of great seats are still available!
When John Fox took the reins of the Chicago Bears in mid January, everyone knew that the Bears were entering a rebuilding phase. Well, everybody but possibly the NFL, who managed to schedule three 2014 playoff teams; Green Bay, Arizona and Seattle, to open the season. Week one was a 31-23 loss at home. This was followed by devastating 48-23 week two thrashing by Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals. Now the Bears must travel to the West Coast to face the Seattle Seahawks.
The game against Seattle was going to be a monumental task to begin with. Now add the loss of starting QB Jay Cutler and it would be easy to see the team losing faith. But don’t let John Fox hear you say that.
“Almost everybody in here [locker room] is classified as a professional,” Fox said after the game. “And that’s what professional do: They don’t worry about morale. We get paid to win.”
The Seahawks, on the other hand, are having their own issues and have also begun the season with an 0-2 start; a 3 point loss to the Rams to open the season and a 10 point loss to the rejuvenated Green Bay Packers.
There are still plenty of great seat and affordable tickets for all you Bears fans on the West Coast. Get yours today and help cheer on your Chicago Bears on the road!
