The Chicago Bears really blew an opportunity today. With positions in the red zone they came away with three points when touchdowns were what they needed. The Bears decision to bring Cutler back early from a groin injury was a mistake. Given how well McCown had played on Monday night, the Bears should have stuck with the backup.
This loss means they trail the Lions by a full game and if they finish even they lose the tiebreaker because they’ve been swept by Detroit. It is not a season ending loss but it really was a chance the Bears let slip away.
