PFT’s Thanksgiving Day picks

Thanksgiving Week usually entails all game picks for the weekend being published on Wednesday.

The picks for the trio of Thanksgiving games appear below. Last week, [more]

Bears list Mitchell Trubisky doubtful for Thanksgiving

Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky‘s shoulder injury is serious enough that he’s unlikely to play tomorrow. The Bears listed Trubisky as doubtful for their early Thursday kickoff against the Lions.

Cody Parkey’s rebound results in NFC special teams player of the week honor

Bears kicker Cody Parkey had a rough outing against the Lions in Week 10 when he hit the uprights with four of the kicks he tried in a 34-22 Chicago win. The Bears didn’t bring in anyone to try to take Parkey’s job, but they did send him to Soldier Field to get in some [more]

Lions preparing for system with Bears QB uncertain

Bears head coach Matt Nagy said on Tuesday that he is “cautiously optimistic” about quarterback Mitchell Trubisky starting against the Lions on Thanksgiving despite a right shoulder injury that’s keeping him out of practice.

NFC playoff picture: Rams’ win keeps them ahead of the Saints, for now

The Rams won Super Bowl 52.5 on Monday night, and as a result they remain the top seed in the NFC playoff picture. But that may not be the case for long: The Rams have a half-game lead over the Saints, but with the Rams on their bye, the Saints can tie it up this [more]

Mitchell Trubisky has throwing shoulder injury

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has an injured throwing shoulder. The Bears did not practice today, but in their league-mandated injury report they announced that Trubisky would not have practiced because he has an injured right shoulder. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s anything serious. Quarterbacks often get time off as a precaution if they have [more]

Kirk Cousins humbled by Sunday night’s loss

The Vikings had a chance to take a big step toward winning the NFC North in Chicago on Sunday night, but they returned home with a 25-20 loss. The loss was the 12th for quarterback Kirk Cousins in 16 career appearances in prime time games and Minnesota’s big ticket free agent acquisition had a rough [more]

Cody Parkey had a “rewarding” performance on Sunday night

Bears kicker Cody Parkey spent the last week in the spotlight for the wrong reasons. Parkey hit the upright with missed kicks four times in Week 10, which led to extra work at Soldier Field that was chronicled by helicopters in the days leading up to Sunday night’s game against the Vikings. That work appeared [more]

Vikings’ running backs total 13 carries, 17 yards, 1 fumble

The Vikings’ running attack was already bad heading into Sunday night’s game. But Sunday night was a new low. Minnesota’s two running backs had a shockingly bad night against the Bears. Dalvin Cook had nine carries for 12 yards and lost a fumble, while Latavius Murray chipped in for four carries for five yards. The [more]

Sunday Night wrap-up: Khalil Mack and the Bears roll the Vikings

The Bears defense was probably going to be good anyway. Their preseason trade for Khalil Mack turned the pressure up a notch, and their performance has followed. Mack was dominant Sunday night in their 25-20 win over the Vikings, collecting a sack, batting down a pass and forcing and recovering a fumble. That moved him [more]

Bears giving Vikings chances, but hanging on

The Bears are doing their best to make this game interesting. The Vikings are failing to take full advantage. Minnesota has two straight turnovers, but the Bears can only manage field goals and still trail 14-6 in the fourth quarter.

Bears go up 11-0 on Vikings, dominating early

Bears kicker Cody Parkey hit his first field goal of the night. But they didn’t give him a chance at a second kick, when most teams would have. The Bears followed a touchdown pass to Anthony Miller with a two-point conversion to Josh Bellamy, hitting it to go up 11-0 on the Vikings. Parkey missed [more]

Bears get first points, first turnover

There are only three points on the board, but the Bears will take a start like this. Their defense just stopped a Vikings drive, with Khalil Mack forcing a Dalvin Cook fumble, giving them the ball back at their own 15, as they hold a 3-0 lead. It was Mack’s fifth forced fumble of the [more]
