Bears Ravens Game Suspended Due to Severe Weather


 

The Bears – Ravens game has been postponed due to a severe storm working its way through the Chicago area.  This storm is serious business, with a tornado touching down  southwest of Chicago near Peoria, Illinois.  Fans were asked to evacuate their seats and head for cover into the bowels of the stadium.

The break comes with 4:51 left in the first quarter with the Bears trailing the Ravens.  Just before the weather delay, Justin Tucker hit a 52-yard field goal to put the Ravens up 10-0.  Ray Rice broke out of his season-long slump with a 47 yard scamper to set up his 1-yard touchdown run.

The Bears appeared to be a bit distracted and unsettled early on.  There were a few blown plays early on, so it will be important for Marc Trestman to settle his team down.  The defense looks shaky without Tillman, Briggs and McClellin while the offense under Josh McCown has been uncharacteristically out of sync.

Stay safe and stay dry out there.

BEAR DOWN!!!
