When Will The Chicago Bears Win A Game In 2016?

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.)
