Chicago Bears:

latest news at page 1:
    Chicago Pierce (4-8) – Arizona Cardinals (10-2): 22-33 The weekend in Arizona seems to have been great. Despite the returns of Kyler Murray (11/15, 123 yards, 2 touchdowns + 10 runs, 59 yards, 2 touchdowns) and Diandre Hopkins (2 receptions, 32 yards, 1 touchdown), the Cardinals did not make it. You have to force their skill to cross the most generous bears in their introductory land. The first two rounds ended with an interruption, 3e By a failed tackle. Results The spectators were able to record 21 points out of 16 actions played. All this before half time. Luckily the last 30 minutes were very slow so only the defense recovered two other interruptions. Despite trailing by 14 points at the break, Chicago did not give up. Matt Nagy’s men relied mainly on an alternate ground game-short pass and an effective David Montgomery (21 runs, 90 yards, 1 touchdown + 8 receptions, 51 yards), while there was protection (257 yards conceded). But the ability to destroy themselves at crucial moments is dangerous for them. The Cardinals continue all...
    At some point on a frigid, rainy Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field … In front of booing Chicago Bears fans and apathetic ones who eventually bolted early to the warmth of their cars … Between Bears quarterback Andy Dalton’s first and fourth interceptions … In the middle of the Bears’ sixth loss in seven games, a 33-22 blowout against the Arizona Cardinals … The Bears’ headsets bridging play calls from offensive coordinator Bill Lazor to Dalton went out. As if the 4-8 Bears, depleted of several of their best players, needed more issues to deal with, Bears coach Matt Nagy was on the sideline screaming play calls from Lazor in the coaches’ box to Dalton on the field. “Like high school out there,” Nagy said of the situation before he obtained a walkie-talkie that allowed him to relay the call from Lazor to Dalton’s headset. It was the second time in two games at Soldier Field that Nagy referenced a headset issue, and this one lasted most of the second half, he said. “We handled it well with the situation...
    Loss No. 8 for the Chicago Bears ended with such a “Who even cares?” feeling Sunday. Trailing the Arizona Cardinals by 11 points in the closing seconds, quarterback Andy Dalton found a meaningless 11-yard completion over the middle to running back Khalil Herbert, raced his offense to the line of scrimmage and spiked the ball a half-second after time ran out, 5 yards shy of midfield. With the sky grayer than an elephant’s hide and a cold mist seemingly stuck inside Soldier Field, only a few thousand spectators were still in their seats as time expired on the 33-22 loss. And, well, that was that. Just another predictable but demoralizing defeat for a downcast team that can’t seem to stop losing. The Bears are losing football games. They’re losing energy. They’re losing focus. Long ago, they lost the belief of much of their fan base. And it’s likely only a matter of time now before they lose their head coach, much of his staff and quite possibly their general manager too. Yet almost as soon...
    Though cold and miserable Chicago weather certainly isn’t news to anyone, the freezing rain and gusty temperatures Sunday at Soldier Field had some Bears fans dreaming about a new stadium outside the city. In September, the Bears signed a $197.2 million purchase agreement for Arlington International Racecourse, a move that takes the team a step closer toward securing property for a new stadium in Arlington Heights and leaving their longtime home near downtown Chicago. Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals didn’t near any records, but fans sat through freezing rain and biting winds, according to the National Weather Service. The coldest recorded Bears game was in 2008, when temperatures hit 2 degrees. No plans have been officially announced for a new stadium, but many fans on Twitter talked about the possibility that it would come with a roof to block out the snow and rain that sometimes pummels players and fans at Soldier Field. The majority of NFL stadiums are open-air, but a number of newer stadiums are equipped with fixed or retractable roofs. “I hope...
    Kyler Murray threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more in his return from an ankle injury, and the Arizona Cardinals beat the struggling Chicago Bears 33-22 on Sunday. The Cardinals (10-2) got back Murray and three-time All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins after both players missed three games because of injuries, then rolled to an easy victory over Chicago (4-8). The NFC West leaders, who have the NFL's best record, intercepted Andy Dalton four times. The Cardinals, who were coming off a bye, improved to 7-0 on the road, with each win by 10 points or more. Jalen Thompson and Budda Baker picked off passes that deflected off the intended target on Chicago’s first two possessions. The Cardinals took advantage, with Murray connecting with Hopkins for a 20-yarder and scrambling 9 yards to the end zone. He also threw a 21-yard TD to James Conner in the second quarter to make it 21-7, sending Chicago to its sixth loss in seven games.

    Large sections of seats sat empty as the clock ticked down Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field, with fans fleeing not only the cold, rainy weather but also another miserable Chicago Bears loss. As Bears rookie Justin Fields sat out with broken ribs, veteran Andy Dalton threw four interceptions on the way to a 33-22 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals scored three touchdowns and made a field goal on the drives following the interceptions, including touchdowns after picks on the Bears’ first two drives. The result was the Bears sixth loss in seven games and eighth overall. While the Cardinals welcomed back quarterback Kyler Murray and top wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins from injuries, the 4-8 Bears were missing multiple stars, including Fields, who was not medically cleared to play after being limited in practice all week. Outside linebacker Khalil Mack is out for the season. Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks and wide receiver Allen Robinson missed their third straight games with injuries. Those absences made an upset of the now 10-2 Cardinals an unlikely dream. ...
    Okay, we’ve all been there. You’re outside, the weather’s super-gross, and in the middle of it all, you somehow wind up in a confounding, super awkward situation that you’ve got no choice but to struggle through it. Well on Sunday, that happened to a Chicago Bears fan who was having a really tough time with his poncho. Late in the first quarter of Chicago’s matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, a Bears fan in the upper deck of Soldier Field was caught on camera struggling to get his poncho on correctly — with blustering winds make the task borderline impossible. Even though we’ve seen this kind of thing happen before, videos of the scene made their way to the Twitterverse, where a great many sports watchers were highly amused.

    The Chicago Bears are going nowhere fast and they should do Matt Nagy a favor by putting him out of his misery. The writing is on the wall for Chicago Bears’ head coach Matt Nagy, who will certainly be fired as soon as the season concludes. Chicago fell to the Arizona Cardinals 33-22 this afternoon to drop to 4-8 on the season, making a long-shot playoff berth even more unlikely than it was at the start of Week 13. There were reports prior to the Bears’ Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions that Nagy was going to be fired after that contest only for the organization to quickly refute them. Chicago has never fired a coach in-season, a tradition they would break by firing Nagy now, but it seems silly to prolong his tenure any further at this point.Why firing Matt Nagy now makes sense for the BearsThings could get ugly quick for Nagy with the Bears set to renew the NFL’s oldest rivalry on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers, who will be coming off a...
    After moving past rumors about coach Matt Nagy’s job status, the Chicago Bears had a week of relative peace following their Thanksgiving win against the Detroit Lions.

He worked out at Soldier Field hours before the game to test out his hamstring before the Bears made the decision. Bears rookie offensive tackle Teven Jenkins also is active for his first NFL game after the Bears activated him Saturday. Jenkins missed training camp and the first 11 games after having back surgery. Bears quarterback Justin Fields and wide receiver Allen...
    Justin Fields’ performance in the stretch run of the season will set the tone in terms of what the Chicago Bears roster looks like going forward. Complicating that is the ribs injury he suffered Nov. 21 during the aggravating 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Fields missed the Thanksgiving Day victory in Detroit and Andy Dalton is set to start again Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field. If you are compiling a list of young players not named Fields in position to offer hope for the future, start with outside linebacker Trevis Gipson. The 2020 fifth-round pick hasn’t gotten the attention given to wide receiver Darnell Mooney, tight end Cole Kmet, cornerback Jaylon Johnson, offensive tackles Larry Borom and Teven Jenkins or even running back Khalil Herbert, but Gipson is a player the Bears need to take a large step forward in the final six games. The others, of course, have carved out niches for themselves or are working to do that. Gipson has flashed on occasion, and with 17 games of experience entering...
    CHICAGO -- Quarterback Andy Dalton will be making his second straight start Sunday for the Chicago Bears as a result of Justin Fields' broken ribs.The Bears face the Arizona Cardinals at noon Sunday at Soldier Field, and on Friday coach Matt Nagy said Fields' health improved, but not enough to play. Fields is doubtful for the game."Justin is making good progress, just not there medically for the clearance," Nagy said.Nick Foles will be the backup quarterback behind Dalton. Nagy is hopeful Fields can return soon."I think progress is definitely the good word for him," Nagy said. "Being able to get out there in practice and throw the ball around and get used to doing the common stuff that you do, and now the biggest thing for him is just going to being able to understand, probably more than anything, just the pain management of how things feel."We're obviously not going to go out there and hit him while he's running around in practice and see. So it's going to be a constant communication between him, our trainers, myself, just to...
    After moving past rumors about coach Matt Nagy’s job status, the Chicago Bears had a week of relative peace following their Thanksgiving win against the Detroit Lions. Now the 9-2 Arizona Cardinals come to town to try to disturb that calm. The Cardinals had extra time to prepare for the Bears coming off their bye week. They opened the season with seven straight victories before going 2-2 in their last four games, including 2-1 without quarterback Kyler Murray. Murray, who had a left ankle injury, could return Sunday after coach Kliff Kingsbury deemed him a game-day decision. The Bears, however, won’t have starting quarterback Justin Fields, who isn’t medically ready to return from broken ribs. Bears coach Matt Nagy named veteran Andy Dalton the starter for the second straight game. Dalton led the Bears to a 16-14 comeback victory over the Lions on Thanksgiving but will have a tougher test against one of the NFL’s top defenses. “We’ve got to be consistent with what we’re doing,” Dalton said. “To have that last drive (against...
    Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton will start his second straight game in place of Justin Fields on Sunday as the Bears host the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field. As Fields recovers from broken ribs, Dalton will try to push the Bears to a second straight win against a much more difficult opponent than the winless Detroit Lions team he beat last week. As kickoff approaches, here’s our snapshot look at the game. Chicago Bears (4-7) vs. Arizona Cardinals (9-2) Kickoff: Noon Sunday at Soldier Field. TV and radio: FOX-32, WBBM-AM 780, WCFS-FM 105.9, WRTO-AM 1200 (Spanish). The line: Cardinals by 7½. Over/under: 43½. Sign up now to get Brad Biggs’ 10 thoughts first 1. Player in the spotlight The Cardinals declared quarterback Kyler Murray questionable to play Sunday in what would be his first game since Oct. 28 because of a left ankle injury. Coach Kliff Kingsbury called Murray a game-day decision — one that could drastically affect what the Bears are facing. In eight games before his injury, Murray threw...
    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is not expected to return from his ribs injury Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, but one of his fellow rookies could potentially see his first NFL game action. Bears coach Matt Nagy named quarterback Andy Dalton the starter and Nick Foles the backup for the Week 13 game at Soldier Field, saying Fields is making progress but wasn’t ready to be medically cleared to play. Meanwhile, the Bears have cleared rookie offensive tackle Teven Jenkins to be activated 3½ months after he underwent back surgery. Jenkins, the No. 39 draft pick out of Oklahoma State in the spring, returned to practice Nov. 15 and is feeling good, Nagy said. Nagy indicated Jenkins — for now — will be offensive line depth behind veteran left tackle Jason Peters and rookie right tackle Larry Borom, but he also could be used on the field-goal/extra-points team or in special situations. Nagy said a rotation with Borom midseason might be too difficult to execute. “When you draft a guy you’re always anticipating how he’s going...
    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals come in with the best record in the NFL, a perfect mark away from home, and maybe some fresher legs following a bye. No matter who they have suiting up or where they’re playing, they continue to rack up wins. The NFC West-leading Cardinals will try to keep it going when they visit the struggling Chicago Bears on Sunday. “I think the guys are very focused,” quarterback Kyler Murray said. “Focused on finishing this thing out the way we would like to, going into, hopefully, making a playoff appearance.” The Cardinals (9-2) won two of three games prior to their bye — beating San Francisco and Seattle on the road with a loss to Carolina at home in between — even though Murray (ankle) and three-time All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) missed all three games. Both players returned to practice on Wednesday, but they are the biggest question marks for a team that simply keeps on winning. Arizona is 6-0 on the road, with all six wins by 10 points or more....
    Getty Allen Robinson II of the Chicago Bears is dealing with a hamstring injury. It has been an unconventional year to say the least for Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson. The most unorthodox aspect to the talented wideout’s season so far is that his numbers are way down from previous years. After catching 102 passes for 1,250 yards and six scores last season, A-Rob has just 30 catches for 339 yards and one touchdown in nine games. The Bears had targeted him over 150 times in each of the previous two seasons, but he has just 50 targets so far this year with only six games remaining. Another difference is missed time. After playing in 15+ games in each of the last two seasons, Robinson hasn’t played since Week 9, when the Bears lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers on November 8. Durability has always been one of A-Rob’s strengths, and he has played through numerous ailments since arriving in the Windy City. But considering Chicago decided to pass on a contract extension, slapping the franchise tag on...
    “Fire Nagy!” chants broke out yet again Monday night during the Bulls game at the United Center as Chicago sports fans continue to express their displeasure with Bears coach Matt Nagy at games — regardless of the sport and venue. Bears fans unleashed the chant during the Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens — the Bears’ fifth straight before a Thanksgiving win against the Detroit Lions. Over the last week, it has echoed at Bulls and Blackhawks games and on Monday night included a taunting variation of “Hire Nagy!” directed from Illinois basketball fans to Notre Dame fans after Irish football coach Brian Kelly was reported to be leaving for LSU. It’s likely to continue Sunday at Soldier Field if the Bears can’t keep up with the 9-2 Arizona Cardinals. But at least one Bears player hopes it won’t. “We hate it, honestly,” Bears safety Eddie Jackson said Monday after practice at Halas Hall. “The fans have got to understand that doesn’t help anything. Y’all want us to play better, do better, that’s not helping when...
    After a mini-bye weekend, the Chicago Bears returned to Halas Hall on Monday to review film from their 16-14 win over the Detroit Lions and hold a short practice. As he recovers from broken ribs, rookie quarterback Justin Fields worked to the side with other injured players during the portion of practice open to the media, and coach Matt Nagy said Bears medical staff still is working through whether Fields will be cleared this week. Without Fields playing against the Lions, the Bears couldn’t assess the growth of their most important player. But there were still moments that mattered for the Bears future in the unconvincing win against the 0-10-1 Lions. As the Bears move on from last week’s tumult around Nagy’s job status and focus on Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field, here are five significant things to take from Thursday’s win. 1. Darnell Mooney topped 120 receiving yards for the second straight game and third time this season. Mooney said after the game he wasn’t happy with his performance against the...
    Chicago Bears outside linebacker Khalil Mack on Monday sold his six-bedroom, 6,100-square-foot mansion in Glencoe for $3.9 million. A six-time Pro Bowler, Mack, 30, played in seven games for the Bears this year before undergoing season-ending foot surgery. In Glencoe, Mack made a slight profit on the 15-room mansion, which he purchased new in 2018 for $3.75 million. In June, Mack officially listed the mansion for $5 million. He cut his asking price in September to $4.65 million. Built in 2017, the mansion has six full bathrooms, three half bathrooms, four fireplaces, a custom-built walnut library, an enclosed screened porch with a hot tub, a slate roof, copper gutters, and a lower level with a wine cellar, a yoga studio, a media room and an exercise room. The mansion sits on a gated, 0.5-acre property. “The home presented itself as if it were new construction,” listing agent Michael LaFido of eXp Realty told Elite Street. “We produced a ton of interest and traffic. We had many agents laugh at the price and they said we...
    The Detroit Lions, for all the mistakes they had made Thursday against the Chicago Bears, still had one chance to pick up their first win of the season. Detroit led 14-13, but the Bears had driven to the Lions 16 with 1:54 to play. It was third-and-9, so coach Dan Campbell called a timeout to give his team its best chance. Get a stop – hopefully on an incomplete pass – and after Chicago’s chip-shot field goal, get the ball back with 1:45 to play and two timeouts.

    With the Chicago Bears expected to fire Matt Nagy sooner than later, several names of intrigue have been mentioned as possible replacements.  It’s feeling like the days of Matt Nagy as head coach of the Chicago Bears are numbered. A report surfaced earlier in the week that he’d be fired after the team’s Thanksgiving matchup with the Lions, but that didn’t end up happening. Despite Chicago getting the win over Detroit, fans are begging for the front office to can Nagy. So, who could end up taking over down the road? NFL insider Jason La Canfora has provided a short list that’s sure to catch folks’ attention.Chicago Bears firing Matt Nagy feels like it could come at any momentAccording to La Canfora’s sources, Byron Leftwich, Josh McDaniels, Brian Daboll, Pat Fitzgerald and others are coaches who Chicago would be interested in trying to get to town.

    Getty Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels could emerge as a head coach candidate of the Bears. The Chicago Bears are likely to make a coaching change in the offseason and one New England Patriots coach is likely to be a candidate. According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is one of several candidates the Bears will target to be their next head coach in the offseason. “If they make a move, the Bears are expected to consider Tampa offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Buffalo offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, among others, and it has been well-known throughout the industry for years how high Bears ownership is on Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald, who numerous NFL teams have pursued in recent years,” says La Canfora. “However, sources said that Fitzgerald, who recently signed a big extension to remain at the school he also played for, would not be interested in a jump to the Bears.” ALL the latest Patriots news straight to your inbox!

    During a week of confusion and tumult, reports and rumors, the Chicago Bears needed something to lean on. Anything, really. Burdened by their five-game losing streak and then left to sift through the growing uncertainty regarding coach Matt Nagy’s job security, players and coaches had to push to retain their focus and the concentration of those around them. Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton was happy to do his part. On Wednesday night, at Nagy’s behest, Dalton spoke to the team at their hotel as a way of helping to recenter the group. A day later, he threw for 317 yards, drilled a 17-yard second-quarter touchdown pass to tight end Jimmy Graham and led an 18-play, game-winning field-goal drive that allowed the Bears to edge the last-place Detroit Lions 16-14 on the final snap at Ford Field.

    Getty Quarterback Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears is out with cracked ribs. It looks like Justin Fields’ rib injury is a tad more serious than we initially thought. On November 26, Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy confirmed that the rookie quarterback’s ribs were cracked. Fields, who was seen saying his ribs were bruised and not broken on an Instagram video after Chicago’s Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, had further tests that revealed his ribs had “tiny fractures, not deemed major,” as first reported by NFL insider Ian Rapoport. “The X-Ray and CT scans were clean, but the MRI showed the additional issues. … Fields should return shortly,” Rapoport added.

    WINFIELD, Ind. (CBS) — Former Chicago Bears defensive lineman Dan Hampton was recently arrested charged with driving while intoxicated in Northwest Indiana, officials said Friday. The Lake County Sheriff’s office reported that Winfield, Indiana police arrested Hampton at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20.

    Getty Images Vance Joseph and Brentson Bucker reacted during an NFL game in 2020. If the Arizona Cardinals were to lose defensive coordinator Vance Joseph in the offseason, it would easily hurt the organization. It’s a bit of a cliche, but the players play for him and the coaches love Joseph. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury credits Joseph for their spectacular 9-2 start in 2021. “I’m very fortunate to have VJ (Vance Joseph) here, who I consider the head coach of the defense,” Kingsbury said. There’s a reason why Joseph could move on. The Cardinals defense is ranked third in defensive DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) despite losing All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt to a potential season-ending injury and Pro-Bowl edge rusher Chandler Jones and DT Zach Allen for multiple games due to COVID. Joseph even had to head coach a game against the Cleveland Browns in which they won 37-14 after Kingsbury was placed on Reserve/COVID list. Arizona’s defense has improved with Joseph, who’s in his third year as DC. Arizona has gone from 28th in 2019, 12th...
    Justin Fields is moving around “pretty good,” according to coach Matt Nagy, but it’s premature to say what the rookie quarterback’s status will be with the Chicago Bears, who launched into a mini-bye weekend Friday. Fields was inactive for Thursday’s come-from-behind, 16-14 victory over the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, sidelined with what Nagy confirmed were cracked ribs. On Friday morning, with players set to be off for the weekend, Nagy said he didn’t know the recovery time, but it’s certainly possible the first-round draft pick could return and start against the Arizona Cardinals on Dec. 5 at Soldier Field. “We have some time on our side right now,” Nagy said. “Every day matters for him. I think he’s doing a good job of keeping the communication open. But we’re going to have to wait and see truly where his health is to the point of him being able to play or not play. We don’t want to obviously risk more injury to him as well.” The status of inside linebacker Roquan Smith also remains up in...
    The Chicago Bears have signed a purchase agreement for Arlington International Racecourse, a move that takes the team a step closer toward securing property for a new stadium and leaving their longtime home at Soldier Field. The Bears on June 17 submitted one of multiple bids to purchase the Arlington Heights property, which Churchill Downs Inc. last winter announced would be up for sale for redevelopment. Bears President and CEO Ted Phillips said in a statement that finalizing the agreement was the “critical next step in continuing our exploration of the property and its potential.” Churchill Downs announced the sale price was $197.2 million and said it anticipated closing the sale in late 2022 or early 2023. Soldier Field, which is owned by the Chicago Park District, holds 61,500 fans, the smallest capacity in the NFL. The Bears also would be able to develop the 326-acre property around the stadium with shopping, dining and entertainment. Here’s what to know about the possible move from Soldier Field, with reaction from City Hall to Arlington Heights. What would...
    Justin Fields is moving around “pretty good,” according to coach Matt Nagy, but it’s premature to say what the rookie quarterback’s status will be with the Chicago Bears, who are launched into a mini bye weekend Friday. Fields was inactive for Thursday’s come-from-behind 16-14 victory over the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, sidelined with what Nagy confirmed were cracked ribs. On Friday morning, with players set to be off for the weekend, Nagy said he didn’t know the recovery length, but it’s certainly possible the first-round draft pick could return and start against the Arizona Cardinals on Dec. 5 at Soldier Field. “We have some time on our side right now,” Nagy said. “Every day matters for him. I think he’s doing a good job of keeping the communication open. But we’re gonna have to wait and see truly where his health is to the point of him being able to play or not play. We don’t wanna obviously risk more injury to him as well.” The status of inside linebacker Roquan Smith also remains up in...
    Playing on Thanksgiving is nothing new for the Chicago Bears, who have done it 37 times — the third most in the NFL. Known as the Decatur and then Chicago Staleys for its first two Thanksgiving games, the team competed on the November holiday annually for 19 consecutive years from 1920-38. The venue that has hosted the Bears most on Thanksgiving — 11 times — is Wrigley Field. Here’s a look back at the team’s record on the holiday from the past century. Memorable Thanksgiving game moments for the Bears Nov. 26, 1925: The Bears and Chicago Cardinals play to a scoreless tie at Wrigley Field before 36,000 people — then the largest crowd in professional football history. It’s also the first professional football game for Red Grange, whose signing from the University of Illinois days earlier is credited with helping legitimize the NFL. The teams face each other on Thanksgiving in 1926 — with the game resulting in another scoreless tie. Nov. 29, 1934: The defending champion Bears defeat the Lions 19-16 in the...
    As Cairo Santos sent a 28-yard field goal through the uprights while the seconds wound down Thursday afternoon, he saved the Chicago Bears from a bad week turning into an even bigger embarrassment. The Bears didn’t need to give the Detroit Lions their first win of the season on Thanksgiving at Ford Field. Not after Bears rookie Justin Fields injured his ribs and was forced to sit out. Not after a report emerged that Bears ownership told coach Matt Nagy it was going to fire him after the Thanksgiving game. Not after Nagy’s bosses left him to refute the report to the media himself. Santos’ field goal in the final seconds lifted the Bears to a 16-14 victory over the Lions that snapped a five-game losing streak and ended a nightmare of a week. Bears quarterback Andy Dalton, filling in for the injured Fields, completed 24 of 39 passes for 317 yards with a touchdown and an interception to lead the Bears to the victory. The winning drive included a nice play on third-and-5 in...
    Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy came into the Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions with uncertainty about his future with the organization mounting. Nagy was linked to reports earlier in the week that claimed he was going to get fired after the Lions game. ESPN shot down the report, saying Nagy was told the initial rumors were untrue. Regardless, Nagy and the Bears needed a win Thursday against the winless Lions and did just that.

    The Detroit Lions made a head-scratching move toward the end of their Thanksgiving game against the Chicago Bears that eventually led to their demise. On third down, with the Bears inching toward the goal line, the Lions were penalized for calling back-to-back timeouts as they had trouble with too many men being on the field. The timeout penalty allowed Bears quarterback Andy Dalton to convert the first down and give Cairo Santos an easier try for the game-winning field goal. The Lions were penalized for calling back-to-back timeouts with about 1:54 remaining in the game.

    10 thoughts after the Chicago Bears went on an 18-play drive that lasted the final 8 minutes, 30 seconds of Thursday’s game at Ford Field to set up Cairo Santos’ walk-off 28-yard field goal to defeat the Detroit Lions 16-14 and end a five-game losing streak. 1. Matt Nagy got a reprieve as the Bears encountered a team that consistently does more head-scratching and unpredictably dumb football stuff than they do. The Bears were able to take advantage — even if it required every second of all 60 minutes — and extend the misery of the Lions, who fell to 0-10-1 and have not won since a Dec. 6, 2020, trip to Soldier Field last season. The Lions are 0-14-1 since that afternoon, which was their first game after firing general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia on Thanksgiving weekend. The Lions opted to reboot their franchise over the holiday a year ago, and while it looked earlier this week like there was a possibility the Bears would begin a similar process, now it appears that plan...
    Who knows what the Thanksgiving traditions are in Matt Nagy’s household? But it’s a good bet that once the Chicago Bears coach returned home from Detroit on Thursday evening, he found his way to the liquor supply and poured himself a drink. Extra stiff. What a freaking week, right? And the tumult may be just getting started. After the Bears suffered a brutal home loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday and then followed with three days of commotion centered around the coach’s job security and grip on the locker room, Bears players regrouped just enough Thursday to sneak past the miserable Lions 16-14 at Ford Field. The victory itself was far from impressive. Miles from it actually, merely earning the Bears an “At least you’re not the Lions” medallion. But at the very least, it ended the team’s 45-day stretch without a victory, snapped a five-game losing streak and allowed Nagy some much-needed relief as he headed into a long weekend. “This is about the team,” Nagy said during a 10-minute postgame news conference....

    Cole Kmet had to turn off his phone this week. Enough thoughts already were racing through the Chicago Bears tight end’s head as he tried to prepare for Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions on a short week while also sifting through a blizzard of rumors about coach Matt Nagy’s job status. He didn’t need to add questions from his friends and family to the mix, as much as the Chicago-area native might understand the craving for info about a bizarre week in Lake Forest. “I’m not going to lie, it’s tough,” Kmet said of the Bears’ week. “You don’t know what’s true, what’s not. Then you see things that are true because you were there for them, and you wonder how those things get out. “So there’s a lot of confusion in that sense. But at the end of the day, you’ve got to just block it out and go play football.” Bears players focused well enough to eke out a 16-14 victory over the 0-10-1 Lions on Cairo Santos’ 28-yard field goal as...
    Justin Fields is the Chicago Bears franchise quarterback — or at least the hope is he will be once he is named the starter. We’re tracking the first-round pick’s performance in every game of his rookie season. Preseason game No. 1: Bears 20, Dolphins 13 The first big boost to Justin Fields mania didn’t arrive until the third quarter Saturday afternoon at Soldier Field. The Bears rookie quarterback evaded Dolphins linebacker Tyshun Render near the 15-yard line, sprinted to his left and then lowered his shoulder to plow into the end zone for an 8-yard touchdown run. Bears fans who likely had been taking deep, calming breaths and reminding themselves it was only the preseason opener for most of the first half let loose with excitement. Fields’ NFL preseason debut didn’t get off to a pretty start, but the first-round draft pick did enough by the time he left the game to keep the hype train rolling. In about two quarters of work, Fields completed 14 of 20 passes for 142 yards and a...
    The Bears leaked Matt Nagy’s potential firing just to ‘galvanize’ the locker room ahead of a Thanksgiving matchup with the winless Lions. If you need to put your head coach through what can only be described as a week of complete hell just to beat the Detroit Lions, then you’re managing your football team wrong. Yes, I’m talking directly to you, Ryan Pace and the Chicago Bears front office. Per Ian Rapoport, “amid a report about a potential firing, #Bears coach Matt Nagy gets a Thanksgiving W with a last-second FG. The hope was the report would galvanize the locker room. For this week, it all results in a win.” Yay? Either the Bears are trying to spin Nagy’s perseverance in an attempt to keep him on board far longer than most fans would like, or they actually used the media to scare their head coach into winning football games. Either way it’s weird. Bears need to fire Matt Nagy soon despite winBeating the Lions is not an example of a team turning things around. If anything, the Bears won...
    The clock management by Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell couldn’t have been worse late in the loss to the Chicago Bears.  Dan Campbell is a first-year head coach in the NFL and he very much looked the part in the Detroit Lions heartbreaking 16-14 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving. Late in the action, Detroit fans were begging Campbell to call a timeout to try and save some time for the Lions offense. Instead, Campbell sat on those timeouts until it was too late. In the end, Cairo Santos nailed a chip shot of a field goal to give Chicago the win and keep Matt Nagy’s job safe for now.Back-to-back timeouts NFLWhat really has people losing their minds here is that the Lions tried calling back-to-back timeouts down the stretch. This, which everyone knows, is against the rules and the Lions were quickly penalized for it. So, instead of Chicago facing 3rd-and-9, the five-yard gift set up a 3rd-and-4. The Bears converted and now Campbell is getting roasted for it. The Lions losing cause the coach didn’t know...
    The Detroit Lions’ defensive breakdowns and a bad penalty at the end of their game against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving may have cost the team a better chance at getting their first win of the season.
