Charles Tillman Says Chicago Bears As Underdogs Is Nothing New

The Chicago Bears are hosting the NFC Championship game this weekend but find themselves as 3.5 point underdogs against the Green Bay Packers according to the current NFL odds. I remember hearing folks early in the season say that the Bears were getting lucky and they weren't as good as their record said they were.

Maybe that's the case, or maybe it's not but the Bears find themselves one game away from the Super Bowl. Charles Tillman says the underdog role is nothing new for them

"You know what man it is what it is. I think we've been underdogs all year. If you were to take a poll at the beginning of the season or a survey and said "How many people are going to make the NFC Championship and it would be the Chicago Bears hosting at Soldier Field?" I think it would be like 50-to-1 odds of us doing that, so I'll take us every day."

I agree that it seems the Bears have a lot of holes and they're not consistent but it's hard to argue with a team that's hosting a championship game. Coming into Soldier Field and facing one of the NFL's best defense will be no easy task for the Packers, even though they're favored to win the game. 

The Bears and Packers kick off at 3:00 p.m. (ET) on Sunday. Check out Windy City Gridiron and Acme Packing Company for more leading up to the game.
