Chicago Bears Overreaction No. 2: The Chicago Bears might have the worst defense in the NFL

After trading away Robert Quinn the week prior, the Bears were expecting to take a hit on defense, however, it’s unlikely that the Bears expected this much of a downgrade.

There’s younger talent that, if looking at the stat sheet, outperformed Quinn in fewer snaps.

That, however, didn’t show up this week against the Cowboys.

Not only did the Bears give up 49 points to the Cowboys, but that’s the highest score by a single team this year. The Seahawks somehow have the second-highest with 48. So, it’s much closer than originally anticipated, but the point still remains.

Giving up 49 points and 442 total offensive yards is just a really poor performance; there isn’t much else to comment on.

Jaquan Brisker continues to play well, at least, and Eddie Jackson is tied for the league lead in interceptions. The silver lining, folks.
