On a day the Bears honored Walter Payton on the 10th anniversary of his death, the Bears put on a defensive show at the expense of the Cleveland Browns. The Bears defense recovered 3 fumbles and intercepted 2 passes, the last for a Charles Tillman TD return.
The offense had great field position most of the day and while not doing much with it in the earlier possessions did find the end zone on a pair of Forte TD runs on later ones.
The Bears have 5 of the next 7 games at home, this stretch is where the Bears need to make a move. But to do that they are going to have to fix or find some patches for this offensive line. Jay Cutler was sacked 4 times and was under pressure for most of the day. Forte showed some signs of life today, if the line can start opening some holes Forte is ready to get this thing moving.
Jay Cutler : 225 yards, 1 INT
Matt Forte: 90 yards, 2 TDs
Devin Hester: 7 receptions and 81 yards.
Garrett Wolfe: 5 runs for 53 yards
Next Week: We get to see if we are still who we thought we were when the Cardinals come to Chicago.
