Benny Cunningham scores a touchdown on fake punt
The Bears saw something and called a fake punt. It worked as Benny Cunningham caught the ball for a 38-yard touchdown. Cunningham finished with two catches for 43 yards and one rush for four yards.
Tarik Cohen continues to struggle
The Bears debut of Mitchell Trubisky could have been better. Penalties, key drops, poor play-calling and turnovers cost Chicago this game. Tarik Cohen did not help his quarterback much either. He caught one pass for negative yards and gained 13 yards on six carries.
Jordan Howard has a subpar game against Vikings
The Bears looked to be in control of the game early, but could not put points on the board. Jordan Howard had a 42-yard touchdown run called back for a holding call. If that play stands, the outcome of this game could have been different. Unfortunately, the play was called back and Chicago lost 20-17. Howard did see 19 touches and gained 76 yards.
Chicago Bears defense gives up four touchdowns
The Bears allowed four touchdowns to Aaron Rodgers, but they also limited him to only 179 passing yards. The scoring onslaught was more due to timely turnovers by the Bears' offense. The Bears were not able to generate any turnovers and have yet to grab an interception this season. On a positive note they were able to record two sacks.
Benny Cunningham carries the ball five times on Thursday
The Bears lost in a lopsided 35-14 matchup. However, if you look beyond the score, it was really the Mike Glennon turnovers that made this outcome look uneven. Chicago actually out-gained the Packers by 50 yards on offense and had three more first downs. Benny Cunningham saw the field in this one. He carried the ball five times for 26 yards. He was not involved in the passing game. Will Mike Trubisky be the answer going forward? How many more games before he sees the field? These are all questions that John Fox and Ryan Pace must consider going forward.
Tarik Cohen has a quiet night
We have all come to expect big plays from Tarik Cohen. Unfortunately, he did not come up with many in the 35-14 loss to the Packers on Thursday. Cohen did have a couple nice runs called back because of holding penalties, but he only ran the ball six times. He finished with 24 yards rushing and 24 yards receiving on four catches.
Jordan Howard reaches the end zone
The score in this loss looks worse than the feel of the game. The Bears moved the ball, but four costly turnovers made a big difference. Jordan Howard was limited to only 53 yards on 18 carries. The bright spot though was a hard-fought touchdown run.
Chicago Bears played well on defense
The Chicago Bears lost 23-17 on Sunday to the Falcons, but their defense and special teams played fairly well. The defense recorded two sacks thanks to Akiem Hicks. A breakdown in coverage led to an 88-yard touchdown catch by Austin Hooper. They also failed to record a turnover.
Michael Burton saw one carry on Sunday
The Bears fought hard and played a close game against the defending NFC Champions. Despite losing to the Falcons 23-17, Chicago had some solid output. Michael Burton saw one carry out of the backfield and turned the play into a seven-yard gain.
Tarik Cohen explodes in season debut
The Bears seemed to have one offensive weapon on Sunday and his name is Tarik Cohen. Cohen not only carried the ball five times for 66 yards, he also caught eight balls for 47 yards and a touchdown.
Jordan Howard has a solid first game
Despite the Bears losing 23-17 to the Falcons, the offense performed better than most expected. Jordan Howard had a solid game, but more eyes were on the explosiveness of teammate Tarik Cohen. Howard saw 13 carries for 52 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three of four targets for 14 yards.
