Bears vs Raiders final score: Bears get first win of season with 22-20 victory

New, comments

The Chicago Bears have won a football game, thanks to Jay Cutler and Matt Forte.

The Chicago Bears have been going through a lot lately. Another new general manager, another new head coach, and of course the tenuous relationship between the quarterback position and the fanbase in Chicago.

Some final stats:

- Jay Cutler: 28/ 43, 281 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT, 89.4 rating

- Matt Forte: 25 rushes, 91 yds | 4 rec., 64 yards

- Martellus Bennett: 11 rec, 83 yds, 1 TD

What did we learn? Jay Cutler could start for 75% of the teams in the NFL, but would do so while throwing a weekly interception. Before you argue, keep inmind he put up the numbers he did with an injured offensive line, and backup wide receivers.

An offensive coordinator with an actual game plan, paired with a running back that is worth a damn, and Cutler can lead a team to victory.

How do you feel about today's game versus the Raiders?  What are your thoughts as we head into next week versus the Kansas City Chiefs?
