Bears are about where I thought they'd be
Considering I picked them to go 11-5 and win the Super Bowl, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that the Bears are 4-1 heading into their bye week.
It's not the record that is surprising to me. It's the way in which they've compiled that record.
Yes, the defense has been the big story. I expected the unit to be slightly better than average, and it's been nothing short of great through five games. The Bears rank third in the NFL in points allowed (14.2 per game), sixth in yardage allowed (291.2 per game) and second in rush defense (65.8 yards allowed per game). Oh, and they've forced an NFL-high 17 turnovers and have scored five touchdowns.
