How The Bears Pulled Off A Week 7 Upset Victory

The Bears surprised football fans everywhere on Monday night with a 33-14 win against the New England Patriots. Everything seemed to click, whether it was on offense or defense. The Bears had no problem moving the football behind Justin Fields’ play and Luke Getsy’s play calling. The defense played like themselves, not allowing any second-half points. Cairo Santos led the charge for the special teams with five field goals. And most importantly, Matt Eberflus defended Bears legend George Halas’ legacy by beating Bill Belichick, further preventing him from breaking Papa Bear’s all-time coaching wins record.

Against a head coach known for feasting on young quarterbacks, no one expected the outcome that the Bears’ offense produced. Getsy finally adapted and prepared an offense that catered to Fields’ strengths, allowing Fields to amass 261 total yards and a rushing and passing touchdown. For the first time this season, we saw Getsy pull out designed run plays for quarterback Justin Fields. This allowed Fields and the Bears’ offense to stretch the field and give the Patriots’ defense a hard time. Getsy prepared a perfect game plan for the offense, and he’ll have to do it again against a strenuous Cowboys defense next week.

It was business as usual for the Bears’ defense on primetime. After the Patriots scored 14 unanswered points in the first half, the Monsters of the Midway allowed zero second-half points. They also totaled four turnovers, three more than New England. Rookies Kyler Gordan and Jaquan Brisker recorded the first interceptions of their careers. Both rookies have been solid players for this defense, and they will be looked to be relied on in the future.

The Bears have rejuvenated their fanbase with this dominating win over the Patriots. Fields played great, the offense was moving the ball, the defense was forcing turnovers, etc. As the Bears are now heading toward week eight against a very good Dallas Cowboys team. More specifically, their defense. The Bears’ offense and Luke Getsy will have to do their very best to pull out a win. This means using Fields to our advantage. The defense will have to keep doing what they’re doing, which is causing turnovers. Coach Eberflus will have to put together a stellar game plan to extend the win streak to two. The Bears are finally starting to look like a real football team, and if they can with the roster we have now, there’s no telling what we are capable of in our future.
