Week 8 Game preview: Bears-Chargers

Both teams meeting at Soldier Field Sunday imagined their seasons going in a completely different direction.

Each squad was in the playoffs last year and had a lot of reason for optimism coming into the year that just hasn’t materialized.

Most people reading this post will understand and know what the Bears’ issues are (run game, playcalling, quarterback) but the Chargers are mostly struggling with injuries.

They’ve lost three starting offensive linemen, Melvin Gordon hasn’t been himself and they’ve been unable to score enough points.

So it’s a battle between two bad teams, but it should be winnable for the Bears.
