On Thanksgiving, the Chicago Bears will take on the Detroit Lions in an NFC North showdown. It's reportedly going to be the last game of the Matt Nagy era.

According to Mark Konkol of Patch, the Bears will part ways with Nagy following Thursday's game against the Lions.

"For disgruntled Bears fans looking for something to be thankful for after five straight losses, this is it," Konkol wrote. "Matt Nagy will coach his last game for the Bears on Thanksgiving in Detroit, a top source with knowledge of the decision told Patch."

The timing of this move would be a bit bizarre, but it's evident that Nagy's time with the Bears is coming to an end.

Nagy was on the hot seat coming into this season regardless of the fact that Chicago made the playoffs last year. Even though Chicago has dealt with a plethora of injuries this season, the reality is Nagy has made a handful of bad coaching decisions.

If the Nagy era is truly coming to a close on Thanksgiving, he'll finish his tenure with at least 31 wins.

The Bears have never fired a head coach in the middle of a season, so Nagy could make some history on his way out.
