Our latest Bear & Balanced is our cooled-down recap of the Bears vs. Commanders game from TNF and our first time talking about a win in almost a year!

NFL: Chicago Bears at Washington Commanders Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears faced off with the Washington Commanders way back on October 5, but we’ve kept with our usual Monday night schedule for Bear & Balanced. That gave us three extra days to take a breath before talking about the huge 40 to 20 win.

We’ve rewatched the game (and actually enjoyed it this time), listened to all the press conferences, examined the transactions, and looked at the health of the team, so join us for some Bears talk!

Check out Jeff and me on Bear & Balanced here, or come hang out with us live on 2nd City Gridiron at 6:00 p.m. (CT).

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

  • Intro: We'll both share some general thoughts about the game.
  • Trench Tribute: This is our weekly pick for lineman of the game.
  • Sweet Tweets: We're both active on social media — so be sure you're all following us at @gridironborn & @wiltfongjr and we highlight one Twitter interaction/Tweet each week.
  • 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 Commanders.
