In the end, a loss is a loss, but the 17-15 loss to the Denver Broncos this weekend showed that they have the defense to be able to hold down a powerful team such as the Broncos, but the offense and play calling need much improvement.
With a fourth and goal on the four yard line, the Bears coaching staff decided to go for it and ended up turning it over in the end zone and the Broncos ended up winning by two points.
“I think we hadn’t made many trips down there, and when we had, we hadn’t scored touchdowns,” Head Coach John Fox said in post game comments. ” It had been kind of a field-goal game. At that point in the game, we felt that was going to be maybe our last opportunity so we were aggressive and came up short on fourth-and-four”
The Bears have little time to reflect on their decision as they have a quick turnaround and play again this Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, against the Green Bay Packers (7-3) at Lambeau Field.
