Passing Defense: C-
A week after harassing Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, the defense took a few steps back this week. Ryan Tannehill played well against the Bears’ defense to say the least. He completed 25 of 32 passes for 277 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
In addition to that, Tannehill did not commit a turnover and finished with a quarterback rating of 123.6. Yes, seriously, the guy who has played inconsistently for the Dolphins this year looked like a Pro Bowl quarterback against the Bears.
The only player that prevented the Bears from receiving a lower grade was Jeremiah Ratliff, who recorded 3.5 sacks. And although the Bears totaled four sacks overall, Tannehill had more than ample time to throw the ball most of the afternoon.
