The Chicago Bears had a rough outing in Preseason Week 1, with the offense failing to move the ball, and the defense allowing the Denver Broncos to move the ball seemingly at will. There were plenty of causes for concern, but not for panic. It's only the preseason...
This week, they are facing the perennial heavyweight champions of the world, the New England Patriots. The Bears and Pats practiced together this week for three days, and two of them featured some pretty serious skirmishes. You can bet the tempers will boil over to game time, so we will see if the Bears have a bit more spark than they had last week.
