At 9:05 PM, a few minutes after the Patriots’ 13-3 win over the Rams in Super Bowl LIII, the Bears put out this “We Got Next” post on their social media, indicating that they’re already thinking ahead to what big things could be ahead for the team in 2019.
They figure to be a major contender following a breakthrough 12-4 season in which they won the NFC North for the first time in eight years.
Tarik Cohen, one of the Pro Bowl players on the squad, was already expressing his desire to get the Bears to where the Patriots now sit at the top of the NFL.

Already a few early lines are coming out for the 2019 season, and naturally, the Bears’ odds have one up quite a bit.
