Fans throughout Chicagoland had a bounce in their step Sunday afternoon through Monday. The Bears looked as good as they have in over a year in their win over the Rams and have pulled within a game of .500 on the season at 4-5.
However, with a two-game winning streak and all that momentum, Bears fans still aren’t sure how to feel. Just one day after the dominating win, fans are split on if the Bears will reach the eight-win mark.
Fans are almost perfectly split on where they believe the Bears will finish. Their remaining schedule has games against Denver, Green Bay, San Francisco, Washington, Minnesota, Tampa Bay and Detroit. Four of those games come against teams with records below .500 currently.
If the Bears were able to get over the .500 mark, it would be their first time doing so since Lovie Smith’s last season as head coach in 2012.
The biggest measuring stick to their success may come this week when they play the Broncos. Despite being 7-2 on the year, the Broncos will play without Peyton Manning and could be primed for an upset.
