NFL: Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns Scott Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

Two in a row was a nice little distraction for this Chicago Bears season, but there will be no winning streak. Yesterday, they blew it against the Cleveland Browns after leading by ten in the fourth quarter, which is the third such collapse for Matt Eberflus' team this year.

The playoffs were a long shot before their latest collapse, but now they'll need a miracle.

Will it also take a miracle for Eberflus to make it to a third season?

Check out Jeff Berckes and Lester Wiltfong on a new Bear & Balanced here, or come hang out with us live on 2nd City Gridiron at 6:00 p.m. (CT) for another Bear fan therapy session.

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 features one number/statistic from the game that we found interesting.
  • 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 Browns.

After we wrap up the podcast portion of the show, we'll stick around to answer any questions you guys may have from the YouTube comment section in some video-exclusive content.
