Chicago’s offense still managed to find a way to put points on the board, but had some costly turnovers in the second half. On the other side of the ball, the defense had a takeaway of their own, but once again struggled to put pressure on the quarterback. Although those two phases had their time of struggle, it was the performance by the special teams unit that had the biggest impact. The Bears’ special teams allowed the Patriots to score two touchdowns, which ultimately was the difference in the game.
With another loss added to their record, Chicago now faces the possibility of being under .500 for the first time this season. Here’s a look at the Bears’ Week 7 report card after another heartbreaking loss.
