The month of December will signal the end of the 2017 regular season and will, most likely, be the end of the Bears’ season. Chicago will start the year struggling but will end it as a better team. However, they won’t be quite good enough to make the playoffs. But they won’t end the season with as poor a record as many prognosticators are saying.
In fact, the Bears will be much better off at the end of the 2017 season than they were at the end of last year’s miserable campaign. You can bet on it. And they will have a strong finish to the season, in the month of December, to show how far they have progressed.
So here, in our final preview of the Bears’ schedule for 2017, we will look at the last five games of the season. Can they end the year on a high note or will they suffer a big blow and lose out? Let’s find out.

If you remember last year’s game between these two teams, the Bears, after a rough start, pretty much had their way with the 49ers. Thanks to extremely poor play by San Francisco’s quarterbacks and a shoddy run defense, Chicago earned one of their three wins on the year. The 49ers, like the Bears, are in rebuilding mode now. But, they have a longer way to go than the Bears do.
I think this will be an easy win for the Bears. The 49ers quarterback situation will still be a problem next season so don’t count a lot of passing. Ironically, Chicago could be facing one of their two temporary starters from last year, Brian Hoyer or Matt Barkley. That should make things interesting. The Bears’ defense should be able to take care of those two. With issues on defense to boot, San Francisco has a way to go before they can be very competitive again.
Chicago will get another win and start the month of December on a high note. It could be what kicks off a strong close to a promising season.
Early “Don’t hold me to it” Prediction: Chicago 27 San Francisco 13
December 10th @ 1 pm on Fox Chicago at Cincinnati
The Bengals had a tough season last year and will hope to rebound in 2017. If they can stay healthy, they have a chance at a lot better than last year. But there are some holes they need to fill before they can count on winning a …
