The 1995 Chicago Bears season was their 76th regular season completed in the National Football League (NFL). The club posted a 9–7 record under head coach Dave Wannstedt. It was the club's second straight 9–7 season, but failed to make the playoffs due to a tiebreaker loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The Bears started the 1995 NFL season as one of the hottest teams with a 6–2 record halfway through the season; however, a stunning overtime home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers 37–34 triggered a three-game losing streak as part of losing five out of their next six games falling to a disappointing 7–7 record, essentially eliminating themselves out of playoff contention.
