Jay Cutler is facing the Broncos for the first time in his career, and Soldier Field is doing its part to try and give the Bears a competitive advantage.
Deonte Thompson took over kick return duties from Marc Mariani, but Mariani is still getting snaps at wide receiver with Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal out with injuries.
The Bears defense is losing the game in the trenches, and the Bears are having trouble stopping the run game. They've gotten to Brock Osweiler a couple times in passing situations, but the Broncos are eating up the clock and racking up the yards almost at will.
Can the Bears get things going and pull out the upset? The Broncos are going to give them all they can handle, so it will be up to the coaching staff to make adjustments as the game goes on to keep them competitive.
This is your 2nd Quarter Open Thread... Have fun!
