57. . 3-4. . Chicago Bears. 24. team

Well, that was a nice little win from the Chicago Bears. I’m not sure if I’d bet on the Bears to knock off the Carolina Panthers on a regular basis, especially by the means it happened, but Chicago should take the 17-3 victory with happiness.

Especially when Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky completes only four passes.

Yes, four passes. You read that right.

Instead, the Week 7 Bears looked more like a defensive powerhouse against quarterback Cam Newton and Co., sacking him five times and registering 11 hits.

If that’s how Chicago has to win games this season, they’ll be perfectly happy with it.
