In what was possibly head coach Matt Nagy's last game with the Chicago Bears, the team fell to the Minnesota Vikings 31-17 on Jan. 9.
It was a tale of two halves, as the Bears led 14-3 at halftime.
The Bears still led 17-10 entering the fourth quarter, but the Vikings outscored them 21-0 in the final period as Kirk Cousins threw two touchdown passes and Patrick Peterson returned an Andy Dalton interception 66 yards for another score.
With the loss, the Bears finished 6-11 for the season.
Also, the opponents for the Bears' 2022-23 season have been set. Along with their regular division foes (Detroit, Green Bay and Minnesota), who they will play twice each, Chicago will face the Washington Football Team, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons, among other teams.
All good things must come to an end.
