The Bears turned the ball over more than they would have liked and Detroit was able to capitalize on those turnovers. Both Charles Tillman and Brandon Marshall were pulled from the game once in awhile after they looked to be uncomfortable and bothered by something.
Tillman has been battling with a couple of injuries early on this season and Marshall hurt his ankle after coming down with a Jay Cutler pass late in the game. Marshall limped towards the sideline but returned to the game once again and converted a two point conversion to help bring Chicago within eight points.
Chicago looked like a completely different team until the fourth quarter when they started to get things going. The protection for Cutler got sloppy and even when Cutler was able to get away, he still managed to make mistakes.
Now I’m not bashing my quarterback (Yes, I’m a Bears fan. The picture should have been a give away.), but the mistakes need to be fixed. This Sunday will feature their toughest test of the season early on as they take on the New Orleans Saints.
Brees just torched Miami’s defense and threw for four touchdowns. They’re going to need to get back to their Week 1-3 form and defend their home turf against a high powered offense who won’t hesitate to chew up and spit out their secondary.
#Bears Brandon Marshall, Charles Tillman and Anthony Walters did not practice today
