CHICAGO (CBS) — The Bears’ surprising Thanksgiving Day win over the Packers kept them in the playoff picture, but coach John Fox isn’t looking beyond the team’s next opponent, the 3-8 San Francisco 49ers, on Sunday.
“What’s gotten us where we are is to focus on one game at a time, and the guys have responded well to that, so really right now all our focus and preparation starts today on the San Francisco 49ers,” Fox told WBBM Newsradio’s Josh Liss.
That said, Fox and the Bears had plenty to celebrate on Thanksgiving, after defeating their rival 17-13 at Lambeau Field, for only their second win against the Packers in their last 12 tries. It was also the first time Chicago has won in Green Bay with Jay Cutler as its starting quarterback.
After the Bears’ big win, linebacker Christian Jones posted a few videos on Instagram showing the players dancing and carrying Fox around the locker room.
“It was great, just looking at the joy on their faces,” Fox said. “A lot of those guys have not experienced that there before, so the old guy had to kind of share.”
