The Chicago Bears badly need a win if they have any hopes of making a late-season run at the playoffs, and this week they have gotten several injured starters back into the lineup. Their starting quarterback Jay Cutler being one of them.

But Cutler did not have a good first quarter, throwing two interceptions on really bad passes, one of which went for a pick-6 by Chris Conte.

They started off the game running the ball right down the Bucs defense throat, but for some reason decided to change up the play-calling and start throwing the football. Case in point: 3rd and short, the Bears go empty backfield and shotgun. Cutler throws a terrible ball to Alshon Jeffery, which ends up being picked off.

The defense looks good, shutting down most everything the Bucs are throwing at them.

Can the Bears regroup and take control of the game? Stay tuned...
