Realistically speaking, I don’t think it was possible for last Sunday’s Bears game to end in a more thrilling way than it did. After the offense had pounded its way to 13 points, the defense slowly bent and finally broke in the game’s final minute, allowing both the touchdown and two-point conversion necessary to put the leading Chicago Bears behind the Denver Broncos with 31 seconds to go. But just when all hope seemed lost, QB Mitchell Trubisky found Allen Robinson just within field goal range and set up a nerve-wracking 53-yard kick that Eddie Pinero nailed without hesitation.

It was both a wildly emotional game and a wildly important win, as the Bears evened their record at 1-1 and avoided falling to 0-2, the statistical kiss of death for playoff-hopeful teams. But even in the wake of what felt like an impossible victory, a question remained on Bears’ fans minds: “What is going on with our offense?”

In this week’s video breakdown, I attempt to answer that question and more. Throughout the video I discuss...

  • The defense’s battle with the Denver offense...
  • The 9 players, coaches, and position groups that stood out during the game...
  • Why I think Matt Nagy’s offensive game plan was better designed than you may think...
  • And much much more...

Check it out below and let me know what you think!

What did you think of Nagy’s game plan? And do you think the offense will find their footing against Washington?
