The offense of the Bears got out to a real strong start then slowed down near the end of the half which gave a scare to all Bears fans thinking they might give up the game. Once the fourth quarter started they played their best out there showing they can still score on the offensive side. The defense looked great forcing 5 turnovers they may not been able to sack the quarterback but were able to get close and get a psychological advantage. One thing to point out is that the Bears offense need to know their plays before hand because they used their timeouts very early in the game. Overall the Bears got the win and next week take on the Detroit Lions in Detroit.
