Tampa Bay Bucs 10
Another Chicago Bears half of football with no offensive points. This is not a good thing. The Bucs, who are tied for the second-worst record in the NFL, have come into Soldier field and neutralized Marc Trestman's offense, and have managed to squeak out a 10-0 lead in the process.
The fans started booing early, and have only grown more weary as the game has gone on. At times, Mel Tucker's defense has been solid; other times, it's been what we have grown to expect-- big plays, missed tackles, and unfathomable 3rd-and-long conversions allowed.
The Bucs outgained the Bears 211 yards to 68 in the first half, and Marc Trestman looks lost.
Add to the fact that Lance Briggs left the game late in the 2nd quarter with a groin injury, and at the time of this writing, is questionable to return.
This is your 3rd Quarter Open Thread... Don't burn anything down.
