Bears End Losing Streak With 30-6 Win Over Browns

Everyone said that the Cleveland Browns was exactly what the Bears needed in order to get their season back on track. It appears that the assessment was correct as Chicago would come away 30-6 winners of this contest.

At first it seemed that the offense would struggle again as Chicago went three and out on its first two possessions and could only muster three field goals on their first three scoring opportunities.. However the things would pick up eventually for the offense and the Bears would begin to pull away as the game went on. The defense as predicted, had a big day forcing five turnovers and putting pressure on Browns' quarterback Derek Anderson for the entire afternoon. Along with that, the Bears held Jamal Lewis to 69 yards on 16 carries and Derek Anderson didn't even manage to eclipse the century mark in passing yards (76). The running game was ok for the most part. Matt Forte had a decent game gaining 90 yards on 26 carries along with two scores en route to the Bears enjoying their season high in rushing with 170 yards.

Whether it's victory or defeat, there are good and bad variables to examine. The offensive line continues to struggle with pass protection a bit as Cutler was sacked four times today. While Cutler did manage to pass for 225 yards, he didn't have a touchdown and he threw his 11th interception on the season, the second most in the league behind Carolina's Jake Delhomme. While the Bears should enjoy this victory, there is still much work that needs to be done and several problem areas that remain unresolved with almost half of the season gone. Coming into this game, the Bears will have five of their next seven games at home. While the win against Cleveland was nice, a much more talented Arizona Cardinal team pays a visit to Chicago next week and the Bears will have to play one of their best games of the season if they hope to win that game. We will see what happens.
