Shepkowski: The Good, Bad and Ugly Of Bears-Chargers

Just over a month ago, the Bears were 2-3 and looked to be headed for disappointment. Five wins later, they seem like a legitimate player in the NFC race after another rather impressive showing against San Diego on Sunday. That is, if they are able to overcome Jay Cutler’s broken thumb.

Shepkowski: The Good, Bad and Ugly of Bears-Bucs

They haven’t looked truly remarkable since their Week 1 thrashing of Atlanta, but in running the ball better of late and an improved defense, the playoffs don’t seem as far fetched as they did after the Green Bay and New Orleans debacles earlier in the year.
