CHICAGO (CBS) — With an 0-3 start, it’s a fair question.
When will the Bears win a game?
Well, the next best chance for Chicago, according to FiveThirtyEight, comes in Week 6 against Jacksonville. That analysis gives the Bears a 64 percent chance of victory.
That’s about as good as it gets for the fan base.
The week-by-week breakdown doesn’t favor the Bears again until Week 12 against the Titans and then the following week against the 49ers.
Imagine a two-game win streak after going 1-10?
On the plus side, sort of, this team doesn’t yet approach historical badness.
The low point, according to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo ratings, happened on Nov. 30, 1975 following a 28-7 loss to the Packers.
In that game, Bob Avellini completed 9 of 25 passes for 109 yards and three interceptions, for a quarterback rating of 10.
Walter Payton accounted for 85 of the team’s 132 total yards of offense (40 rushing and 45 receiving.)
