The Bears rolled in the state of New York, while the Bulls and Blackhawks continued to lose streaks over the weekend. You may have missed the following weekend in Chicago.
The bears blew Bills 41-9 and improved to 5-3 at half time of the season. The blowout victory was against a 2-7 team, but it's still a good sign for the future. Teams that blow out multiple teams tend to play the playoffs. Now the team can look forward to three consecutive games against NFC North.
Before the game, the big news was that Khalil Mack and Allen Robinson were inactive due to injury. Meanwhile, Kevin White was idle and not because of discipline or health.
The Bulls finished home with four games and that was not nice. On Friday, the Bulls lost to the Pacers 107-105, the Bulls' second defeat after losing a point in extra time at the Nuggets on Wednesday. Antonio Blakeney has been hot lately and was the first player besides Zach LaVine to lead the Bulls in one game this season.
The homestead ended on Saturday against the Rockets. The Bulls held a total of 2 to 8 in a fourth defeat in a row with 88 points in the season. The good news is Wendell Carter Jr. is playing well and looks like an early Rookie of the Year candidate.
While the Bulls occupied the United Center for four games in a row, the Blackhawks set off. A three-day West Coast trip resulted in three regulatory losses. Duncan Keith was ejected and the Blackhawks gave up the last four goals of the match with a 5: 3 defeat. The Blackhawks have lost five in a row, but at least players like the sweater of the team.
Anthony Rizzo won his second Gold Glove and shared the honor at the first base in the National League with Freddie Freeman from Atlanta. Finalists were also Javy Baez and Jason Heyward, but they did not win.
For the White Sox, Adam Engel was beaten by midfield midfielder Jackie Bradley Jr.
