PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It could have been worse.
No, not the game.
The Bears’ 54-11 loss to the Eagles Sunday night was nothing short of an epic meltdown on national television. And the performance was especially disturbing given what was at stake.
A division title.
“We were ready to play this game and we played a terrible football game, for lack of a better word,” Bears head coach Marc Trestman said. “I’m not going to use any other word other than that. We were terrible in all three phases. We didn’t play well in any phase of our football.”
By virtue of the Lions choking away their season against the hapless Giants and the Packers falling at home to the Steelers, the Bears could have won the NFC North Sunday night with a win over a team that was playing for nothing more than playoff seeding.
