Mitch Trubisky kicks off the second half of the most important season of his young career when the Bears take on the Detroit Lions Sunday at Soldier Field. His poor play through the first eight games has sparked speculation that the Bears could be in the quarterback market this offseason, and with several intriguing options likely to be available, the former second overall pick needs to catch fire quickly.

One quarterback who's been mentioned as a potential replacement is Cam Newton. The 2015 NFL MVP was placed on injured reserve this week as he recovers from a foot injury, and the better-than-expected play by Kyle Allen combined with Newton's hefty cap hit in 2020 has his future in Carolina in doubt.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirmed Newton's contract makes him trade-friendly, with Chicago as a destination he'd be open to.

It's now or never for Trubisky, and with proven players like Newton within GM Ryan Pace's reach, the next eight games will dictate his future.

Almost all of football media are picking the Packers to win, but there's at least one analyst who isn't convinced Green Bay is for real.

Entering Week 15's game against the Packers, Chicago is 7-6 and still alive in the NFC playoff race. Those playoff chances need some help via losses from the Vikings and Rams over the final three weeks of the regular season, but the Bears need to win-out before they can start watching the scoreboard. And if this week's collection of experts picks is any indication, scoreboard watching might never happen.
