The Chicago Bears have lost their first three games of the season and from the outside, appear to be one of the more dysfunctional teams in the league right now with the offense failing to produce and defensive coordinator Alan Williams abruptly resigning last week. Despite all of that, it doesn’t sound like star quarterback Justin Fields is ruling out a playoff run.

Following the team’s embarrassing blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend, Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields made it clear that he is not giving up hope of the team potentially turning it around and making the playoffs this year, pointing out that the Detroit Lions almost did just that last year and that the team still has 14 more games to play.

“The Lions started 1-6 last year and they almost made the playoffs,” Fields said according to Pro Football Talk. “We’ve got 14 left, at least.”

He’s not wrong about the Lions as the team won eight of their last 10 games to put themselves in contention for a playoff spot on the very last weekend. Unfortunately for them, things didn’t exactly go their way on the final weekend of the regular season and their run fell just short.

Still, Bears fans will like hearing that Fields is still optimistic despite a disappointing start to the year.
