The Bears (3-5) fourth quarter rallies are what make me believe that they do have some talent on the roster. Even after floundering against the Lions and Vikings, cialis sale the Bears gave it their all last night, viagra which is definite progress from last season (and a testament to the coaching staff).
The first half of the game didn’t give the Bears much hope. Hell, every single analyst on MNF (sans our man, Ditka) predicted the Chargers to win and rightfully so. In the first half, QB Jay Cutler was Jay, and threw a 68-yard pick-six which made my eyes roll. But by the fourth quarter, Cutler gained some much-needed confidence and in a series of eight plays, put the Bears 55 yards. Cutty then connected with TE Zach Miller on a 25-yard one-handed touchdown. It was spectacular. Bears ended up clinching the win, 22-19.
A victory is great and should provide momentum for these upcoming games (that will still be very hard to win), but will this momentum be enough for Bears to make it to the playoffs? Doubtful. But at least they are showing progress under the new coaching regime.
When you’re grabbing lunch with your coworker today, here’s the main player stats you need to know from last night’s game below.
Key Chicago Player Stats:
Rookie Running Back Jeremy Langford (in for Matt Forte) had a stellar game; he ran for 142 yards with one touchdown and one two-point conversion. (Pretty sure last night’s performance made up for that dropped pass a couple games back.)
Our favorite WR Alshon Jeffery, caught 10 passes for 151 yards.
Cutler was 27 of 40 passes for 345 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. It is worth noting that Cutler’s interception rate coming into this game was just 1.9 percent, a career best. (Again, a testament to Adam Gase and the coaching staff.)
Cutler broke the franchise record for most career touchdown passes (with a total of 138) when he connected with TE Bennett last night.
Bears will be headed to St. Louis to take on the Rams (4-4) next Sunday at 12PM CST.
