    The Chicago Bears and the Los Angeles Chargers are two of the most disappointing teams going as the season reaches the halfway point. The Bears and Chargers each have an opportunity to turn their respective seasons around when they meet on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV) in a Week 8 game.

    The Bears (3-3) were champions of the NFC North in 2018, but they’ve have lost two consecutive games and are probably thinking wild card berth at this point. The biggest issue for the Bears is their offense, of lack of a productive offense. They average 18.7 points a game and while they did score 25 points during their loss to the New Orleans Saints, one touchdown was from a kickoff return and two other touchdowns occurred during garbage time. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has regressed and is taking a lot of heat.

    The Chargers (2-5) have lost three consecutive games and their most recent loss serves as a microcosm of their hugely disappointing season. They failed to score the go-ahead touchdown from the Tennessee Titans 1-yard twice late in the fourth quarter in their 23-20 loss in Week 7. They’re unlikely to chase down first-place Kansas City in the AFC West, but they desperately need to win to keep their wild card hopes alive.

    The Los Angeles Chargers were expected to be a force in the AFC and so far their season has been a major disappointment. The Chargers have lost three straight games to plummet into last place in the AFC West with a 2-5 record on the season. L.A. could not score a touchdown with a first and goal opportunity with under a minute remaining in their 23-20 road loss to the Titans. Philip Rivers played well last week, but overall he is having an inconsistent season. The veteran QB has tossed four interceptions in his last three games, and he has collected 2114 passing yards with an 11:6 TD to INT ratio.

    Melvin Gordon has struggled since returning from a lengthy contract holdout. The 26-year old RB has only tallied 81 rushing yards in three games played on the season, and they will need more production from him going forward. Chargers’ #1 receiver Keenan Allen has cooled down recently, although he still has 564 receiving yards on the year.

    The Chicago Bears have dropped to 3-3 after posting a 3-1 start to the season. The Bears offense has been a glaring issue this season. They are coming off a 36-25 home loss to the Saints last week in which the offense was booed by the Soldier Field crowd. Mitchell Trubisky made his return after missing two games and he struggled for most of the game. Trubisky finished with 251 yards for an average of only 4.6 yards per reception. He picked up most of those passing yards in the fourth quarter when the game was already out of reach. The 25-year old QB is having trouble leading the Bears offense, recording 839 passing yards with a 5:2 TD to INT ratio.

    The Bears’ rushing offense also continues to stumble. Rookie David Montgomery leads the way with only 231 rushing yards on the season. Allen Robinson II has been one of the few bright spots on offense. The 26-year old WR tallied another 97 receiving yards last week, and he has accrued a total of 464 receiving yards. The Bears offense needs to find answers quick.
