The Bears have hit five wins by midseason for the first time since 2013. The Matt Nagy era is off to a good start and now the Bears have a chance to make some noise in their division with three-straight games against the NFC North.
It's an area the Bears have struggled in, winning just six of 24 games against the NFC North since 2013. That has to change if the Bears are going to make a playoff push. Furthermore, they have struggled mightily against the Lions. They are 1-9 in their last 10 against Detroit, including losing three straight. Seven of those 10 were decided by six or fewer points and nine of the last ten were decided by 10 or fewer points.
The Lions have played the Bears tough and have more often than not come out on top, but this is a new era. The Lions have lost two in a row and seem to be a team lacking identity. They still have talent though and will be looking to right their ship at Soldier Field Sunday.
