Wentz enters his first NFL road game
It looked like old times as the Chicago Bears got off to a rough start last week against the Houston Texans who forced five sacks on quarterback Jay Cutler in the 23-14 loss.
Cutler finished the game 16-29 for 216 yards, a touchdown and an interception while his rookie counterpart finished 22 -35 for 231 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
The Bears must now get ready to face Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles but Bears rookie Deiondre Hall may have inside information about how to try and stop Wentz, who threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns in a 29-10 over the Browns last weekend. Hall played against Wentz while at Northern Iowa.
“Dude has a cannon,” Hall said. “He has a cannon for an arm. And he was always a really smart quarterback. He reads defenses very well from my experiences against him. Plus, he’s not afraid to run if he gets in trouble.”
” He was making NFL-type passes in college, throwing from the far hash to the opposite sideline on a comebacker. And he’s got enough zip on it by far. It’s crazy.”
It all goes down Monday night and you still have the opportunity to be there so grab your tickets and help cheer on your Chicago Bears over the Philadelphia Eagles!
The Detroit Lions picked up their first win of the season over a Chicago Bears team that could not complete a comeback this time out even though they had a number of opportunities to do so inside the twenty.
“We’ve got to get better in the red zone,” quarterback Jay Cutler said.
The Lions were led by Matt Stafford (27-42 for 405 yards, four TD’s and an int) and Calvin Johnson who caught six passes for 166 yards and a TD.
Jay Culter led the Bears with 26-41 passing for 353 yards and a touchdown and Alshon Jeffery caught eight passes for 147 yards and a TD.
The Bears have a bye this week and will begin preparing to face the Minnesota Vikings at home on November 1st. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Chicago Bears!
When John Fox took the reins of the Chicago Bears in mid January, everyone knew that the Bears were entering a rebuilding phase. Well, everybody but possibly the NFL, who managed to schedule three 2014 playoff teams; Green Bay, Arizona and Seattle, to open the season. Week one was a 31-23 loss at home. This was followed by devastating 48-23 week two thrashing by Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals. Now the Bears must travel to the West Coast to face the Seattle Seahawks.
The game against Seattle was going to be a monumental task to begin with. Now add the loss of starting QB Jay Cutler and it would be easy to see the team losing faith. But don’t let John Fox hear you say that.
“Almost everybody in here [locker room] is classified as a professional,” Fox said after the game. “And that’s what professional do: They don’t worry about morale. We get paid to win.”
The Seahawks, on the other hand, are having their own issues and have also begun the season with an 0-2 start; a 3 point loss to the Rams to open the season and a 10 point loss to the rejuvenated Green Bay Packers.
There are still plenty of great seat and affordable tickets for all you Bears fans on the West Coast. Get yours today and help cheer on your Chicago Bears on the road!
