Jeffery sets up short TD run, Bears take lead

Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been a problem for the Eagles.

Jeffery beat rookie cornerback Jalen Mills on a 49-yard pass to make it first and goal, then drew a pass interference call on Nolan Carroll to make it first and goal at the 1-yard line. Jeremy Langford ran it in from there, giving the Bears a 7-3 lead on the Eagles early in the second quarter.

The drive covered 65 yards in six plays. The Eagles have just three cornerbacks active for tonight’s game, so Jeffery might not be done making big plays.

Jeffery has three catches for 73 yards in the game’s first 19 minutes.

    I swear, it sure seemed like Morelli’s motley new crew of Z team zebras spotted the Bengals at the TWO after a stiller WR was flagged for the same PI(ez) yesterday!?

    Q: Did this really happen & was there any explanation ever given for why …?

    Gotta say, Carson Wentz looks pretty good.

    It would be nice if the Bears could get some consistent pressure on a rookie QB. Or any QB, for that matter.

    If that would have been Jordan Mathews he would have dropped it.

    Yep, Jay Cutler avoiding the blitz and throwing it that far had nothing to do with it…

    After seeing how bad the O-Line and playcalling have been these first two games (not to mention Jay Cutler’s typical flaky turnover prone self), I am no longer down on Alshon for staying away from the team as much as possible this preseason. Other than a few occasional flashes of promise from the running game, the Bears offense is atrocious and I see no way it’s gonna get better anytime soon. It must be frustrating as hell to know your talent is going to translate to maybe 4 wins this season.
