The Chicago Bears lost their fourth straight game to the Atlanta Falcons Week 11, losing 27-24 away.

Bears quarterback Justin Fields went 14-21 for 153 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the loss and also led the team in rushing with 85 yards. The second-year QB was sacked four times and left the Mercedes-Benz Stadium limping a little, injuring his left shoulder in the loss.

It was a homecoming of sorts for the Bears quarterback, who hails from Kennesaw, Georgia and was visited by several friends and family. There was also a strong display of Bears fans in the audience, including a group of fans dressed like ex-coach Mike Ditka. Ditkas’ gang had a bachelorette party, went viral before the game, and later became the target of a troll job once the game was over.

“Sorry I ruined your bear bachelorette party” The Falcons official account tweeted, along with the photo of the ditkas. It was the first of a couple of troll jobs courtesy of the team’s official account.

Several former Bears players are currently members of the Falcons and were active for the Week 11 game including: running back/return specialist Cordarrelle Patterson running back a 103 yard kickoff for a touchdown, linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, wide receiver Damiere Byrd, tight end MyCole Pruitt, offensive lineman Germain Ifedi and defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson.

Former Bears general manager Ryan Pace, who was fired after the 2021 regular season, also currently serves as the senior human resources manager for Atlanta, so there were likely several very lucky people siding with the Falcons by the end of the game.

After once shadowing Chicago fans, Falcon’s Twitter later attended a post-game celebration that gained popularity in 2018 when Pace and former head coach Matt Nagy led the Bears. Under Nagy, Chicago celebrated victories with “club dub,” which usually involved dancing, music, and mood lighting in the dressing room when the game was over.

The Bears were up 17-7 in the second quarter with just four minutes left, but they only managed seven points throughout the second half and the Falcons clinched a win.

“I said to the guys at the end of the game, offense, defense, kicking, we need to play supplemental football in the fourth quarter and that’s what we need to do to seal those games,” Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said after the game loss. “I love the way the guys fought. They fought and stayed until the end of the game. We just have to do better in the end.”

“Obviously we’re not achieving our main goal, which is to win,” Eberflus added. “This is an important thing, but there is another process involved. We always look at the good and the bad in every game, so let’s look at that and say, “How can we improve that?” We are building a football team here, so we have to keep improving.”

The Bears attend New York Jets Week 12 where they are attempting to score 24 or more points in their sixth straight game.
