What the Bears have and exactly what they need, other than at nose tackle, is fluid. The line overall was respectable but did not play at the level needed for a top defense.
The defense allowed just 12 total points and took the a weakened San Diego offense out of a balanced approach as the game went on. But pass rush from the down linemen was nearly non-existent.
It looked like Jay Cutler was going to add another game-winning fourth quarter drive to his resume.
Prior to the season, “View from the Moon” project that the Bears would defeat the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Field Sunday and improve their record to 3-4. Now that becomes a difficult call.
