The Chicago Bears lost their fourth game in a row and now sit at (3-8) on the 2022 season, and if the shoulder injury to Justin Fields sidelines him, this team will be tough to watch. I'll still be in front of my TV each Sunday, as will most of you, but an offense with Trevor Siemian isn't very exciting on paper.

The Bears lost to the Atlanta Falcons yesterday, 27 to 24, and the rewatch showed a lot of just-missed-it types of plays. Football truly is a game of inches, and the Bears had plenty of chances to win. But that's been the season's story so far; missed opportunities.

Jeff Berckes and I will dive into our cooled-down takes on the game at 6:00 p.m. (CT), so join us!

Here's our usual bullet point outline of Bear & Balanced.

  • Caught up in a numbers game: This segment has us featuring one number/statistic that we found interesting from the game.
  • The Fields Report: We talk about quarterback Justin Fields before we take our commercial break.
  • The 3 Bears: You all know the story of the Three Bears, so in this porridge-themed portion of the show, we give our picks for the Bear that was hot, the Bear that was cold, and the Bear that was just right in the game against the Falcons.
