The Chicago Bears once again looked disappointing on both sides of the ball for most of the game against the Bucs. With more questions than answers coming out of Week 2 now, some fans might not even see the justification in having a winners list. Still, this week there were some very good performances that warrant this praise, even if they came in a losing effort.

The Chicago Bears got some good contributions from some of their key players

Chicago Bears Week 2 Winner No. 1: D.J. Moore

D.J. Moore did great things against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This was the type of game we expect from him as the true number-one wideout on this team. He showed the speed, the route running, the catching ability, and the elite after-the-catch skills that he is known for. Moore finished the day with six receptions on seven targets for 104 yards. While the stats are not insanely impressive, having a receiver over 100 yards on the day is somewhat of a feat in itself for the Bears.

More importantly, D.J. Moore was used as he should be as the star wideout for this team. He was effective on numerous third-down plays and was a steady option whenever Justin Fields looked his way. If the Bears can use him even more that would only make the offense better. Unfortunately, there were other plays in which he was open but Fields hesitated to get the ball to him.

It was clear that he was a bigger part of the game plan this week after only having two targets last week versus the Packers. The Bears coaching staff realized they could rely on Moore to do his job, and he answered the call this week. Of all the players brought in this offseason, Moore has the highest expectations because of what he means to this offense. In this game, he showed what fans wanted to see from him, and was a clear winner, even with the loss.
