The Chicago Bears earned a wire-to-wire victory but not without raising more questions.
Here we are after a Week 6 win by the Chicago Bears. They beat the Carolina Panthers, 23-16, on Sunday at Bank of America Stadium. That victory runs their record to 5-1, thus blowing the minds of the national media throughout the NFL.
Many called the Bears “one of the worst 4-1 teams in the history of the league.” Despite winning again, will they continue that narrative?
The Bears led wire-to-wire but still raised questions about the offense. They were still too inconsistent and didn’t take opportunities to seal the victory earlier. They needed an interception to finally secure the win.
Chicago Bears defense comes through again
The defense once again came through for the Bears. The unit announced their presence on the Panthers’ first drive of the game. On the second play from scrimmage, Panthers quarterback
Teddy Bridgewater barely escaped a safety and got sacked on the 1-yard line by Bilal Nichols. On the next play, Bridgewater threw a pass that rookie cornerback Jaylon Johnson defended. The ball ended up getting intercepted by Tashaun Gipson. The Bears offense was set up with a first-and-goal from the Panthers’ seven.
