Top Bears Moments: 80-71

Tuesday, September 17th, 2019

The Chicago Bears, one of the two remaining charter franchises of the National Football League, have put together an impressive century – nine NFL championships and a league-most 28 players inducted into the NFL's Hall of Fame.

Tuesday, September 17th, 2019

The New York Giants officially named rookie Daniel Jones as the team's starting quarterback, replacing two-time Super Bowl winner Eli Manning after two uninspiring weeks into the 2019 season. Jones was selected by the Giants with the sixth pick overall in the 2019 NFL draft, a selection that was widely criticized by draft analysts and fans across the country. The former Duke star was considered a fringe first-round pick for much of the run-up to the draft, but few big boards had him rated as a top-10 pick.

Eddy Pineiro tells Deion Sanders he was ‘fully confident’ he’d connect on game-winner vs. Broncos

Monday, September 16th, 2019

It's almost as if the Bears can't escape the one position that usually gets the least attention unless, of course, they miss a game-winner in a playoff game. Ever since Cody Parkey's double-doink disaster in last year's wild-card loss to the Eagles, Chicago has fielded questions about who his replacement would be for 2019.
