Miscues continue to hurt Bears

The Bears began the third quarter with a takeaway, as cornerback Zack Bowman picked off quarterback Jason Campbell and returned it 44 yards to give Chicago its first lead of the game at 17-10.

However, the Bears couldn’t hold the lead, and another mistake by their offense has given Cleveland a 24-17 edge late in the third quarter.

With the game tied at 17, Browns defensive lineman Billy Winn stripped Bears tight end Martellus Bennett of the ball, and safety T.J. Ward sprinted away for a 51-yard score to put Cleveland back in front.

The turnover was the third by the Bears’ offense. Cleveland has scored all but seven of its points off of takeaways.

Earlier in the quarter, the Browns evened the score with Chicago on a two-yard TD run by Edwin Baker. The score capped a 10-play, 85-yard drive that took 5:28 off the clock.

    The first miscue, of course, being the choice to START Cutler over a hot-as-a-branding iron QB currently sitting on their bench!

    Trestman is making a huge mistake by keeping a rusty Cutler in the game….good-bye playoffs….Trestman is going to be skinned alive in the Chicago media this week. More rookie head coaching mistakes.

    And so, the season ends in Cleveland…The Bears have no urgency, and no chance at the playoffs. This is disgusting.

    Not to worry – the average height of Browns DBs is 5’8″
