Overall Team DVOA

-50.9% 28th

The Bears' reward for an 8-8 season was an immediate playoff exit and the 20th pick in the draft, but GM Ryan Pace still landed a franchise quarterback thanks to a trade with the Giants. Now, he has to hope that Justin Fields can make an immediate impact. As the architect of the Mitchell Trubisky era in Chicago, Pace has a short leash that may not survive another bottom-10 offensive DVOA season with Andy Dalton as the team's primary starting quarterback.  – Scott Spratt
