The Chicago Bears haven't put up much of a fight tonight in Cincinnati, trailing the Bengals by three scores after one half of play. The Bengals have played with A.J. McCarron at quarterback after Andy Dalton went down with a mild neck injury on a QB-keeper TD, but the Bears defense has had little answer for the run or passing game of Cincinnati.
On the offensive side, the Bears struggled to move the football, with one sustaining drive occurring at the end of the 1st half in a two-minute drill that ended with a Robbie Gould field goal.
Of course, the Bears are without damn near all of their wide receiving corps, which definitely limits Jay Cutler's production, but the Bengals have done a great job of getting early pressure on Cutler, so not sure if the injuries even matter that much.
For now, we can say It's only the preseason... Hopefully Chicago can get their act together before the start of regular season play.
This is your 2nd half Open Thread... Have fun.
