Chicago Bears defense falls short against the Lions
The Bears were in this game and had a chance to send it into overtime. That is what you ask from your defense. Unfortunately, they let up too many plays on third down and could not seem to get off the field. They sacked Matthew Stafford three times and recorded a fumble recovery. They forced another fumble, but did not come away with the ball. They also had two balls that should have been caught for interceptions. The big blow was losing Leonard Floyd to a knee injury. His status is still unknown, but being carted off the field was not a good sign.
Benny Cunningham caught one ball for 18 yards
The Bears game plan looked good throughout the first half and part of the fourth quarter. Benny Cunningham saw a little action, but he only finished with one catch for 18 yards.
Tarik Cohen saw more touches this week than the last three combined
The Bears offense was clicking throughout most of the game, and that has a lot to do with Tarik Cohen finally getting some touches. Cohen saw nine carries for 44 yards and a touchdown. He also had four catches for 15 yards.
Jordan Howard rushes for 125 yards in loss to Lions
The Bears had another game slip from within their grasps. They even had a chance to tie the game late, but Connor Barth missed the tying field goal. Jordan Howard helped the team from the ground by gaining 125 yards on 15 rushes. He also scored on a nice 12 yard run.
Chicago Bears defense dominates the Panthers
The Bears and Panthers offense combined for a total of six points on Sunday. Luckily for the Bears, the defense put up 14 points to beat the Panthers 17-3. Both touchdowns belonged to rookie, Eddie Jackson. Jackson had a fumble recovery that he returned 75 yards for a touchdown on Carolina's first drive of the game. Then he had a 76-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter. To top it off, the Bears defense also had five sacks and another interception.
Tarik Cohen has one catch on Sunday
The Bears defense dominated this game, and the offense looked out of sync. Mitchell Trubisky only passed the ball seven times. One of those passes went to Tarik Cohen who gained 70 yards on the reception. The play was the best offensive play of the day for the Bears.
Jordan Howard does little in victory over Carolina
The Bears offense did not do much on Sunday, but it did not matter as the team topped the Panthers 17-3. Jordan Howard saw the bulk of the carries once again. Unfortunately, he did not turn those carries into much. Howard finished with 65 rushing yards on 21 carries. He did not have any targets in the passing game.
Denzel Valentine plays 25 minutes in loss to the Raptors
The Bulls fell to the Raptors 117-100 on Thursday. Denzel Valentine saw 25 minutes in the loss. He shot seven three-pointers, but only made four. He finished with 12 points, two rebounds and a turnover.
Lauri Markkanen plays well in his NBA debut
With Bobby Portis (suspension) and Nikola Mirotic (face) both out for a while, Lauri Markkanen will see some great opportunity. The rookie played well in his NBA debut. He saw 33 minutes and scored 17 points. He also grabbed three rebounds and had a block. He could be a bright spot for this Bulls team that is rebuilding.
Justin Holiday plays 34 minutes in season opener
The Bulls lost their season opener 117-100 to the Raptors. This was not a surprise as the Bulls are rebuilding. Justin Holiday saw the start with Zach LaVine (knee) still sidelined. Holiday scored 15 points, grabbed four rebounds and had two assists. He also added a steal and a block.
Robin Lopez scores 18 points in Bulls opener
The Bulls hit triple-digits, but it wasn't enough as they lost 117-100. Robin Lopez saw over 30 minutes in this game. He finished with 18 points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal.
