It’s no secret that to get to the NFL Playoffs, a team needs to control its own division.

So far this season, the Bears are 0-3 against their NFC North rivals. Not a good start by coach John Fox. But maybe old habits are dying hard for the former Broncos coach.

With Monday’s 23-21 victory over the Chargers, the Bears are 3-0 vs. the AFC West this season and Fox has won 21 of his last 22—including playoffs—against his old division. In fact, Fox hasn’t lost to the AFC West since a 27-20 defeat to the Chargers on Dec. 12, 2013.


Fox’s AFC West dominance didn’t happen overnight. In his first year with the Broncos in 2011, Fox was 3-3 in his division. The Broncos, like the Bears, started 2-5 that season before rallying behind quarterback Tim Tebow to make the playoffs.
