DETROIT (AP) Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears held on late against turnover-prone Detroit.
Then, the waiting began.
When the Bears defense allows just 248 yards, 160 of those after an initial drive, and the Bears lose, the problem was not the defense (again).
Coach Lovie Smith said on Monday that the Bears had options in place for more injuries on the offensive line than guards Lance Louis and Chris Spencer.
The date was October 14, 2007. The stage was Soldier Field.
