How the Bears adjust defensively with no Justin Jefferson - CHGO - Chicago Bears coach Matt Eberflus addressed the media on Wednesday. Here are the top 3 takeaways from his latest press conference.

‘It feel amazing’: DJ Moore reflects on receiving his first Player of the Week award - Chicago Sun-Times - Moore showed last Thursday why the Bears traded for him with his career-best 230-yard performance that resulted in Moore being the first Bears receiver since Marcus Robinson in 1999 to win NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Bears WR DJ Moore named NFC Offensive Player of the Week - Chicago Sun-Times - Moore caught eight passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns in the Bears’ 40-20 win, which snapped a franchise-record 14 game losing streak.

Bears’ Matt Eberflus quiets noise for a week, but next 5 games are pivotal - Chicago Sun-Times - The Bears are way past the point of intangible growth and “building championship habits” meaning something if they don’t lead to actual wins, and it’s a mountainous climb from 1-4.

Justin Fields-DJ Moore connection is really clicking - 670 - Bears quarterback Justin Fields and receiver DJ Moore have found success early on in their new partnership, with their connection reaching new heights in Chicago’s win last Thursday.


Chase Claypool: There was frustration with losing a lot, excited to be in Miami - NBC Sports - Wide receiver Chase Claypool changed teams last Friday and he also changed places in the standings.


Jordan Addison was a limited participant in Vikings practice - NBC Sports - The Vikings put Justin Jefferson on injured reserve Wednesday and they put another member of their wide receiver corps on the injury report.
