The Bears gameplan has mostly gone to according to plan on Christmas night.
And they are still trailing 14-3 at halftime.
Chicago rushed for 127 yards with Kalil Bell and Armando Allen. They gained more yards than the Packers overall, and dominated line of scrimmage and they forced three and outs by the Packers offense.
And the Bears are still trailing 14-3.
Josh McCown has looked like a clear upgrade from Caleb Hanie, but it will be tough for the Bears to stick with their “shorten the game” approach on the ground of they fall any further behind.
This game has been more compelling than expected, but the Bears turned the ball over and missed a field goal in the first. They can’t win unless they are playing perfect and that’s not happening.
