Chicago Bears starting quarterback Mike Glennon threw an interception for the second-straight week, but overall the veteran QB acquisition from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a much better game than he had last week in a loss to the Denver Broncos. It will be their last opportunity to get things worked out.
Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson attempted a 63-yard field goal with just seconds to go, but it was returned for a touchdown to turn the Bears' 10-7 lead into a 17-7 advantage as both teams headed for the locker room. He also forced a throw to the sideline which probably should have been intercepted. The good news is that they have an extra game in their month to evaluate players and make more educated decisions, but the bad news is one extra game's worth of wear and tear to deal with. Rookie Mitch Trubisky came on late in the third quarter. The key for Trubisky? Small in stature and with other running backs Jordan Howard and Jeremy Langford skipping this game because of injury, Cohen had every opportunity to impress coaches and fans. His lone touchdown pass was a 7-yard scoring strike to Kendall Wright with 36 seconds remaining in the first half.
On the same drive, Trubisky drove the Bears to the Cardinals' 24, but the drive ended in a missed field goal.
Jake Arians criticized the offensive line, special teams and defense, and that was all before the final play of the half that resulted in a touchdown for Chicago. Versatility is a must.
