Johnny Knox seems to have a good on-field relationship with Caleb Hanie and both he and the Bears should benefit from it. Here is a look at hypothetical propositional wagers between the Bears and Chiefs. First team to score Bears. The Bears defense gave a supreme effort last week but they just couldn’t sustain 60 minutes of keeping the Raiders out of the end zone while battling poor field position and excess time on the field. This week, they face a much less potent offense that isn’t likely to find the scoreboard more than a few times. First Bears player to score Robbie Gould. Unless I see differently, I’m not sure the Bears can put up an early first-quarter touchdown for the rest of the season with Hanie at the helm, which is why I like Gould’s chances of getting on the scoreboard first.

Bears’ grades in loss to Chiefs

Quarterback (F) Caleb Hanie didn’t have Tyler Palko’s luck, but he didn’t play well enough to deserve it, either. He was 11-for-24 for 133 yards with 3 INTs and a 23.8 rating. Running backs (C-) Matt Forte (5 carries, 12 yards) left in the first quarter with a knee injury. Marion Barber (14-44...

Chiefs snap four-game losing streak in dramatic fashion

This particular Chiefs-Bears tussle will not be saved and replayed as an NFL classic. The winning touchdown was a gift, on a "Hail Mary" pass that should have had no chance and a potential equalizer was waved off because a wide-open receiver didn't bother to line up properly.
