This grade should be of little surprise to anyone. The Bears were clearly outmatched in every phase of this game. And although getting Forte involved early was a good idea, once again the team had no answer when the opponent began to pull away.
The offense, which was thought to be a strength coming into the season, continues to disappoint. The defense did not come close to pressuring Brady, which is always a recipe for disaster.
When asked about the second quarter that essentially put the game out of reach, Marc Trestman had this to say, as Chicago Sun-Times Patrick Finley reports:
"It was to our own doing, We have to accept that, and it hurt us. It hurt us."
The only positive for the Bears next week is that they will not be playing. But with a road game against the Green Bay Packers after that, things are not looking good. And if they lose that game, they will more than likely miss the playoffs……AGAIN!!!
