The Chicago Bears will face perhaps their toughest test of the 2023 season in Week 3.
Matt Eberflus’ team will head to Kansas City to face Patrick Mahomes and the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs Sunday afternoon.
Both teams were 0-1 before they went to the Sunshine State in Week 2. While Mahomes and Co. bounced back against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Bears’ struggles continued in Tampa Bay. Justin Fields and the offense couldn’t get enough going, leading to a 27-17 defeat against the Buccaneers that dropped the Bears to 0-2 on the year.
