The Chicago Bears are finishing their 2023 season strong with seven wins in their last twelve games, and their latest was a dominating 20-point victory against the Atlanta Falcons. Justin Fields had a nice afternoon and a handful of eye-popping highlights, and the defense continued its fine play under Matt Eberflus' direction.

There's plenty to discuss about the game, but plenty of big-picture stuff bubbling up this week as well.

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).

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 Falcons.

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.
