This is a big game for the Chicago Bears on Sunday as the team seems to be at a tipping point. With two consecutive loses to very good teams, which was expected, the Bears need to prove they can beat other mediocre teams when they square off against the 2-4 San Francisco 49ers. A win can stave off some of the coaching hot seat talk that has permeated on a national level.

But a third loss in a row could send the franchise into laughing stock territory, especially if the offense continues it’s current run of futility.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Bears vs 49ers week 8 matchup.
