About This Quiz

This trivia is about one of the oldest franchises in the history of American football, the Chicago Bears is one of the few remnants of the first league format created in the United States in 1920. Founded in 1919, for eight years in the 1930s and 1940s, the team dominated the sport, winning eight titles, the last in 1963.

After the merge between NFL and AFL, the team stayed a long period without being at the top, only in 1982, the Bears managed to show their strength again with the arrival of coach Mike Ditka. Three years later, he led the franchise to win the Super Bowl, relying on their strong defense as its main weapon. In 2018, they repeated the cycle and, after years of disappointing performances, the Bears found new life with a spectacular defense system, which ultimately resulted in their winning the division and getting into the playoffs.

2018 was key for the Chicago Bears to resurface as a prominent NFL team for the first time in a long time. In making this bold decision to hire Matt Nagy as head coach and investing heavily in players, such as Khalil Mack’s trade, the franchise has ended a seven-year playoff drought. The idea? Defense again.

Retracing their origins in the 1980s, the Bears’ defense carried the team, acting as a destabilizing element in the game. With only 299.7 yards per game allowed, it was the NFL’s best defense, determining the most turnovers, 17.7 per game, and sacks, 50 total.

A calm attack led by quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and the Chicago Bears defense under the coordinator Vic Fangio made it possible for the Chicago Bears to win the NFC North title. There were 12 wins and 4 losses in that regular season, in a campaign that ended in a dramatic and melancholy defeat for the Philadelphia Eagles in the playoff Wildcard round. The history of the Chicago Bears is one of the most amazing ones, that’s why the team gathered so many fans for so long. This quiz is specially made for the toughest Bears fans. Enjoy
