What are the odds Jordan Howard is with the team in the 2019 season?

If you had asked me this question a month ago, I would’ve said slim. However, things have begun to change. Howard has had arguably the two best rushing performances of the season the past two weeks. It looks like he’s running with more authority and confidence while at the same time the play calling has begun to incorporate more play designs that work to his strengths. If this continues, I can see the Bears keeping him around next year.

What odds on getting the Giants in the first round of the playoffs, the Rams in the championship game, and the Patriots in the super bowl??

The Giants need a ton of help to get in so that’s questionable at best right now. The Rams are a far safer bet to reach the NFC title game and the Patriots should always be considered a favorite to reach the Super Bowl. Honestly I’m not thinking that far ahead. The Bears aren’t in the playoffs yet. That won’t change until they are. They need to win Sunday or hope the Redskins lose. Neither is a guarantee. So focus on actually getting in before thinking about who you’ll play.
