Yesterday evening, you would have thought that the Bears had traveled from southern California to play in weather they'd never seen before. The New England Patriots put on a clinic in the snow, in all three phases of the game, for all four quarters. The Bears, on the other hand, only had a handful of plays that looked good.
Luckily, our lead in the NFC North was not lost, as the Green Bay Packers lost to the lowly Lions. We got our butts whipped by the best team in the NFL, and they got whipped by one of the worst. Somehow, I feel better about winning the North today than I did a week ago.
So, this week's game ball goes to the Detroit Lions. Download your morning-after thoughts below.
