Maybe the irony in the Bears’ 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins was that the unit most beset by mistakes and other issues had one of its better games of 2014.
Ryan Tannehill produced his career-best game with a 123.6 rating off of 25-for-32 passing for 277 yards and two touchdowns.
The defense was still without Jonathan Bostic (back) and Lance Briggs (ribs), two of their top four linebackers, but the unit had Shea McClellin back on the strong-side a
Jeremiah Ratliff merits an A+ grade of his own. The veteran D-tackle was a force against the run and boosted the entire defense last week at Atlanta.
From bad to worse, the injury bug continues to plague the Bears defense.
