The Chicago Bears entered Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday the clear underdogs-- The Chiefs are a better team on paper, and playing at Arrowhead is one of the most challenging venues for opposing teams in the NFL. Compound that with the fact that the Bears were dealing with so many injuries, it just didn't seem plausible that they would be able to go into KC and pull out a victory.
And for three quarters, it didn't seem plausible.
But Jay Cutler engineered two touchdown drives with limited mobility and a make-shift offensive line without any of their starting wide receivers... It was a thing of beauty. And to be honest, something in my gut all week long thought this might happen.
