Well, even with a new quarterback under center, the Chicago Bears ended Week 12 with the same result that they have had virtually for the entire 2016 NFL season. Despite a hard-fought comeback, the Bears found themselves on the losing end of a 27-21 score against the Tennessee Titans. This defeat now leaves Chicago with a record of 2-9, with no bright side to look at regarding the rest of the year.

The Bears did jump out to a 7-0 lead to start the game, only to have the Titans score 21 unanswered points to end the first half. Chicago did make a valiant effort in the fourth quarter. The defense kept Tennessee out of the end zone in the second half, and the offense scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to cut the Titans’ lead to six. Unfortunately, they fell short in the closing seconds of the game.
With so many injuries and suspensions to key players for the Bears, many people (including myself) thought that this contest wouldn’t be as competitive as it turned out to be. After witnessing yet another disappointing loss, let’s see if the Bears earned any good marks for Week 12.
