Chicago Bears: Defense Sets Tone Early, Falls to Late Drive By Browns

September 3, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

Questions surrounding the Bears defense and rightfully so, but that part of the Chicago Bears team set the tone early, forcing a fumble during the Browns opening drive.
That led to a short drive, led by backup quarterback Todd Collins, who started the game while the Bears let Jay Cutler rest on the sidelines.
This led to a three-play, 19 yard drive which ended in a 15-yard touchdown pass from Collins to tight end Greg Olsen.
The two teams traded field goals in the second quarter, going into halftime at a 10-10 tie. After two hopeful chances at the beginning of the second half for the Bears, the team only made it into Browns territory twice on offense, getting no closer than the 46-yard line.
They had a total of 59 net yards on their five possessions in the second half.
The Browns special teams blocked a punt with 2:18 left in the game and drove 34 yards to kick a last-second field goal of 37 yards by Phil Dawson to set the Bears at a defeated preseason (0-4).
