Will Offense Continue to Protect the Ball?

The Bears’ win last week was all credited to their defense. The offense only managed to help put up three points, but the one good thing that they did was commit zero turnovers. Of course, having possession of the ball for only 21:25, one doesn’t have much time to give the ball away—especially with the number of three-and-outs the offense had. Points have been scarce with Chicago’s offense, and may continue to be until they find a way to balance their running game and passing game. Until then, the No.1 priority for the offense should be to not give the ball away, and let the defense carry the load.
