November 2018


The third quarter of the 2018 season winds up with the Bears visiting the New York Giants next Sunday and with the Bears in position for a sweep of the four games in this season's quadrant, the first time the Bears have swept a "quarter" since the second quarter of the 2012 season. A win in New York would move them to 9-3, a record they last reached in 2010 and which has assured the Bears a playoff berth every time the Bears have reached that mark since 1950.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- ??? Want to get the New York Giants' attention this week? Just mention Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil Mack. Mack has been a force in his first year with the Bears (8-3).

Unfortunately, the way tie-breakers have gone so far, it'll be difficult for the Birds to slip into a Wild Card spot over Carolina or Minnesota, which makes it all the more important the Iggles take care of their own business and win this division. This one was about the Giants awful play-calling, plain and simple.

Chicago Bears: Mitchell Trubisky is not practicing on Wednesday and head coach Matt Nagy said that means Chase Daniel will be prepared to start his fourth career game on Sunday against the New York Giants. Trubisky is likely to be a "game-time decision," Nagy said.

Bill Belichick won two Super Bowl titles as the defensive coordinator of the New York Giants and has claimed another five as head coach of the New England Patriots, but none of those championships might have happened if he took his coaching talents to Minnesota in 1984.

Chase Daniel led the Chicago Bears to a win on Thanksgiving Day in place of Mitchell Trubisky and may have to do the same this Sunday against the New York Giants. Trubisky has a shoulder injury and, while the Bears are taking it one day at a time, the team are likely to start looking towards the playoffs as Chicago lead the NFC North with an 8-3 record.

We’re close enough to the finish line of the 2018 NFL season that predicting the playoff teams won’t be that difficult. Data crunchers FiveThirtyEight currently has seven teams (L.A. Rams, Saints, Chiefs, Patriots, Bears, Texans, Steelers) with more than

Jason Pierre-Paul says he doesn't feel he has anything to prove in his ninth NFL season, first with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. ''I guess, I'm just doing what I'm supposed to do: play some great football,'' said the two-time Pro Bowl defensive end, who spent eight seasons with the Giants after entering the NFL as a first-round draft pick in 2010. The Bucs traded for Pierre-Paul in March, hoping to bolster an anemic pass rush after finishing last in the league a year ago in passing and total yards allowed, as well as sacks with 22.

An undrafted rookie who began the season on the practice squad kept the Philadelphia Eagles in the playoff race. Josh Adams helped the Eagles overcome deficits of 12-0 and 19-3 in a 25-22 victory over the New York Giants that moved the defending Super Bowl champions within one game of the Redskins and Cowboys in the mediocre NFC East. Coach Doug Pederson has been searching for an answer at running back since Jay Ajayi sustained a season-ending knee injury in October and veteran Darren Sproles injured his hamstring in Week 1.
