Bears Beat Cowboys 27-20; Improve To 2-0

After last week's game against the Lions, one of the glaring weaknesses was the play of the offensive line. Despite squandering several scoring the opportunities, the Bears came away 19-14 winners thanks to the officials declaring that Calvin Johnson's reception was not a catch.

In the first half against the Cowboys, the O-line continued to struggle as the Bears only had 13 total yards and three points on their first three possessions and Cutler was constantly picking himself off the ground on almost every play. However, the Bears did manage to get it together after that as they added 162 more yards and 17 points giving them a 20-14 lead at intermission.

While the Bears' offense didn't do much in the third quarter, their defense only yielded a field goal and the Bears led 20-17 heading into the final period. With more than half of the period gone in the final quarter, the Cowboys missed a chance to tie the game with 5:45 remaining. Following the missed field goal, the Bears scored on the following possession as Jay Cutler connected with Matt Forte for a three-yard touchdown pass to give the Bears a 27-17 lead and they would win 27-20 to improve to 2-0 on the season.

Cutler completed 21 of 29 passes for three touchdowns and no interceptions; this is far cry from the five picks he had thrown in 2009 through the first two games. However, the running game left a lot to be desire totaling only 35 yards on 14 carries for a poultry 2.5 yards per carry. While the Bears are off to a good start, the play of the offensive line and the running game will have to improve if they expect to continue to be successful this year.

  1. I think Cutler is clearly at home now in Chicago, look out Packers. Vikings sorry but you are already toast.
