Chicago Bears vs New England Patriots: Game Time, TV Schedule, Radio, Odds, Online Streaming and More

The Bears look to get back to even again with a victory against the Patriots. How can you follow the action? The Bears followed up a great game against the Atlanta Falcons with a complete clunker against the Miami Dolphins, and it seems like each week nobody has any idea what's going to happen. At all. Which means this week's contest against the Patriots could be anything from a blowout to, well, a blowout. But we'll get into the game itself a bit later. For now, how can you follow tomorrow's game? Game Time: 1:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM CT Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA TV: The crew...

The Weekend Bears Den: October 25, 2014 - Chicago Bears vs New England Patriots news & previews

Title-hungry veterans know turnaround has to start now - Patrick Finley: The Bears’ sense of urgency for Sunday’s must-win game is high. They still believe they have the talent to compete for a championship, and the veterans know how precious that opportunity is. Extreme reactions, gullibility are givens with these Bears - Dan McGrath: Perspective is difficult to achieve or maintain when media coverage most closely resembles saturation bombing. All Bears all the time is a contributing factor to the hysteria, but we bring it on ourselves by being so gullible. == Weekend Den is still in...

Cutler having the best worst season

Jay Cutler this season, as with every season since he came to Chicago, been the subject of much debate. He's played very well at times and made unforgivable errors at other times. With the offense struggling and discussions of lack of leadership, I think it's possible that Cuter is having both the best and worst season by a quarterback in franchise history. Jay Cutler, in his ninth season in the NFL and sixth in Chicago, remains polarizing both league-wide and among Chicago fans. He is, without a doubt, a frustrating player. After showing so much promise last year under Marc Trestman,...

Chicago Bears Injury Report: Lance Briggs and Jon Bostic are doubtful

Chicago Bears Injury Report: Lance Briggs and Jon Bostic are doubtful

Here's the full injury report in advance of Sunday's game between the 3-4 Chicago Bears and the 5-2 New England Patriots. When it comes to working the injury reports, no team is as notoriously sneaky as the New England Patriots. Head coach Bill Belichick tries to give up as little info as possible and he's been accused of not reporting the correct injuries in the past. One thing we do know for sure is defensive end Chandler Jones, otherwise known as "Couldabeen A. Bear", will not play on Sunday. The Chicago Bears also have ruled one player out for this game, safety Danny McCray will be held...

Bears Playbook - Shea McClellin's Bad Day

Bears Playbook - Shea McClellin's Bad Day

After some time off due to injury, everyone's favorite first-round draft pick was back on the field last Sunday. The results weren't good. I've been a staunch Shea McClellin supporter from the day he was drafted, but after his clunker of a game last week, I'm not sure what to think anymore.  Is he simply not an NFL-caliber player, is he the victim of bad coaching or poor scheme, is he in need of more seasoning at linebacker, or it is some variety of "all of the above"? On this first play, I think the answer is as much "needs more practice" as "can't play linebacker." The Bears actually...

The Bears Den: October 24, 2014 - Chicago Bears week 8 news & Bears-Patriots previews

Forte admits he's not sure what offense does best - Bob LeGere: The Bears' talented but underachieving offense is still struggling to achieve an identity and a better balance between run and pass. It’s time to let Matt Forte be the man - Adam L. Jahns: Seven games into a season marred by inconsistency on offense, it’s time for Matt Forte to take over as the focal point of the offense as the Bears gear up to face the Patriots' 24th-ranked defense. To get back in running, Bears need to run - Brad Biggs: Matt Forte has been an integral part of passing game, but the Bears need to get their...

Who will lead the Chicago Bears without a patch?

I don't know about you, but I'm really confused as to whom the leaders are on the Chicago Bears. It used to be so easy to find them with the cool "C" stitched on their jersey, but now... It's Anarchy. Total Anarchy. Former championship Chicago Bears player and Super Bowl winning head coach Mike Ditka has thoughts on the rotating captaincy system being used by current Bears coach Marc Trestman this season. That's because you don't have one. If you had one, he'd be the captain, and that would be it. That's all there is to it. When you see a leader, you don't have to look too much further....

Week 8 Thursday Night Football open thread: San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos

Week 8 Thursday Night Football open thread: San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos

It's a top-of-the-AFC-West clash tonight as the Broncos host the Chargers. Thursday night games haven't been that pretty for the most part this season, but two teams who are going well will duke it out in tonight's contest to see which ends up atop of the AFC West in the first of their intradivisional series, as the Denver Broncos (5-1) play host to the San Diego Chargers (5-2). The Chargers are looking to bounce back from a 23-20 home defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, one in which the Chiefs dominated the time of possession 39:00 to 21:00.  Facing a third-ranked Denver run...

Chicago Bears Sackwatch 2014: Week 7 vs. Miami Dolphins

The pass protection of the Chicago Bears has not been good in 2014. The good news for the Sackwatch is that they are still doing better than the Mike Martz and Mike Tice eras. The Chicago Bears finally had their starting five back on the offensive line for the first time since week one, but it didn't matter as they allowed three more sacks to the Miami Dolphins which brings the 2014 Sackwatch up to...

Should the Chicago Bears make a trade?

Should the Chicago Bears make a trade?

The NFL trade deadline is October 28th so could the Chicago Bears' roster be in need of shake up? Tell us who you'd like to see the Bears move and who you'd like to see them acquire. Among the four major sports in the United States, the NFL has the least active trading deadline. Asides from the draft day wheeling and dealing, there really isn't ever a flurry of trades like in the other major sports. When the NFL moved the trade deadline back a few weeks they figured they would get a few more teams to be active, and it has to an extent, but it's still no where near as hectic as the other...

Pleased to Meet You: Week 8, New England Patriots

The Bears take on the Patriots in Week 8; we're previewing this week's matchup. With the Bears reeling, a suddenly recovered and white-hot New England Patriots team is exactly the opposite of what the team ordered. But, if the Bears are going to make it back to .500, taking down New England is what they'll have to do. Last Year: Finished first in the AFC East (yawn) with a 12-4 record (yawn). In the playoffs, they beat the Colts in the divisional round (yawn) before falling to the Broncos in the AFC Championship Game (yawn). This Year: They still lead the AFC East (yawn) with a 5-2 record -...

Brian Urlacher says Jay Cutler is paid like an elite QB, but he's doesn't play like one

Brian Urlacher says Jay Cutler is paid like an elite QB, but he's doesn't play like one

Lately when ever Brian Urlacher is in the news, it spells trouble for the Chicago Bears. Earlier today he was on Chicago's The Game 87.7 talking about the current state of the Bears. Even though former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher left his job at FOX Sports, he still finds a way to let his voice be heard about the Bears. Earlier today he was on The Game 87.7 dishing on a number of Bears topics, one of which is quarterback Jay Cutler. Just one day after Chicago G.M. Phil Emery said this of Cutler; Jay Cutler is a winning quarterback in this league and no matter how you analyze...

Why the Chicago Bears should have ran the ball on 3rd and 1

Why the Chicago Bears should have ran the ball on 3rd and 1

Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears went deep to Alshon Jeffery on a 3rd and 1 in the first quarter when most agree they should have just tried to get enough for the 1st down. A short pass would have been OK, but here's why I believe they should have ran the ball. You know the situation. The Chicago Bears' defense just held the Miami Dolphins on the game's opening drive to a quick three and out. Miami's punter kicked a 34 yard punt out of bounds, giving the Bears good field position on their own 38. Jay Cutler threw to Alshon Jeffery on first down over the middle for a 5 yard gain, then hit...

Grading the 5 Chicago Bears offensive linemen vs the Miami Dolphins

I went back and rewatched the game pitting the Chicago Bears against the Miami Dolphins. My focus was on the play of Chicago's starting offensive line and here are my individual grades from their performance. I've graded the Chicago Bears offensive line play here on Windy City Gridiron in the past and if you're unfamiliar with how I do what I do, here's a quick recap. I grade on a simple plus/minus system. There is no baseline, there are no bonus points for really doing your job or double negatives for failing miserably, because frankly coaches only care about one thing. Results. You do...

Ten Thoughts on the NFL: Chicago Bears and beyond

I have some NFL thoughts. Ten of them to be exact. Check out what I have and leave a few of your own in the comment section. 1) Just when we think the Cleveland Browns have turned a corner they lose to the previously winless Jacksonville Jaguars. And just when quarterback Brian Hoyer seemed to have established himself the The QB in Cleveland, he goes 16 of 41 with a fumble and an interception. It's time to warm up the Johnny Manziel stories again. 2) One more nugget from that game. I've always thought Denard Robinson could be effective at running back. After a career high 127 yards rushing,...
