I can’t wait for Sunday Night.

The 2018 Chicago Bears have been compared to the 2017 Los Angeles Rams so much this year, that it will be interesting to see this Rams team up close and personal to see where the Bears could be headed.

The parallels between the two teams are well documented.

Both teams were going from an old school defensive coach to a new school offensive minded head coach. Both teams invested draft capital to move up in the draft to get their franchise quarterback. Both QBs struggled through growing pain as rookies in an outdated offensive scheme. Both franchises dedicated themselves to getting their quarterbacks on track in year two.

The Rams went 11-5 under first year head coach Sean McVay in 2017, and the Bears are on a similar winning path at 8-4 under first year head coach Matt Nagy this season.

In McVay’s second year, the Rams look like one of the best teams in the NFL, so where will Chicago be in Nagy’s second season?

The present and the future looks bright for Bears’ fans.
