The NFL has officially moved to a 17-game regular season, which means the league is moving on from the 16-game era that spanned from 1978 to 2020.

There’s been plenty of up-and-down moments for the Chicago Bears during those 42 years — ranging as high as a Super Bowl championship and as low as a double-doink missed field goal. Most recently, they had back-to-back 8-8 seasons.

Kendall Baker of Axio Sports compiled a list of team win percentages during the 16-game era, and the Bears rank around the middle of the pack. They posted a win percentage of .510, which included a 347-333 record. That ranks 14th best in the NFL, where Chicago was just one of 16 teams that finished above .500.
