The Chicago Bears Enter The Pit Of Misery In 27-24 Loss To Lions2 min read
Dilly Dilly! The Chicago Bears are now 3-7 after a BRUTAL loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, losing 27-24 after Connor Barth missed a 46 yard field goal with under a minute to go in the game to hand the win over to Detroit. The Chicago Bears have now lost two close games in a row to division opponents, losing 23-16 to the Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers last week.
Mitch Trubisky had a pretty decent outing, going 18/30 for 179 yards and a touchdown. Trubisky also drove the Bears successfully down field on their final drive before Barth’s missed kick, scrambling for 19 yards on a 4th and 13, later throwing a 15 yard pass to newly-acquired Dontrelle Inman before handing it off to the field goal team. Jordan Howard added 125 rushing yards and a touchdown to the Bears’ offensive effort on Sunday.
Why is it so miserable being a Bears fan?!? We somehow manage to muster up some level of optimism before every game, only to get all your hope taken away from you and then some. Trubisky actually played well and drove down the field on what should have been the game-tying final drive for the Bears before perennial choke artist Connor Barth missed a 46 yard field goal to tie the game. And OF COURSE Leonard Floyd is now out with a “really serious” knee injury, one of the only real bright spots that have come out of the season so far for the Bears.
The Bears should not be losing this many games. Granted our coaching is absolutely atrocious and we have dealt with too many injuries to count on two hands, but they should not be a 3-9 football team right now. We have one of the best running backs in the league, a good young quarterback and an actually competent defense. The Floyd injury actually really pisses me off, he was having a hell of a rookie season. It is going to be a long and miserable final stretch for the Bears, who are going to have to really assess where they are as an organization when the season ends.
