About this Article
The Bears had a feeble 59 yards of total offense with less than a minute left in the third quarter and were trailing 19-7. But they picked up 151 yards the rest of the way to finish with 210 yards and a 23-22 victory. Why the improvement? For openers, the Bears didn’t give the Carolina Panthers an opportunity to add to the 6 sacks they got in the first half. Jay Cutler wasn’t sacked at all after halftime.
