After an impressive win in Week 1 over the Atlanta Falcons, the Bears traveled to New Orleans looking to out stage another NFC South opponent. This time, however, it didn’t go as planned for the Bears.
The Bears took a 7-0 lead on a long drive capped by a Jay Cutler touchdown pass to rookie receiver Dane Sanzenbacher. The Saints then scored 16 unanswered points until the Bears cut the lead to 16-13.
It was all Saints after that. The Bears defense couldn’t stop the high-powered Saints' offense. The Bears' offense, on the other hand, struggled, and had poor play from the offensive line.
The good news is that it’s only Week 2, so panic shouldn’t be an option. The bad news? We’ve seen this before from the Bears.
Here are the Week 2 grades for the Chicago Bears.
