Tampa Bay Buccaneer Defense dominates, Offense frustrates, Give game to Chicago Bears 21-13

Make no mistake, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers played inspired defense; no Lavonte David, down Mason Foster at one point, down Major Wright, but still held the Chicago Bears to 200 yards of total offense. Jay Cutler, who was being Booed off the field by the Bears fans at half time, was 17 of 27 for 130 yards! And the Bucs Lost! Why? Because for starters they only had a 10-0 lead at half...
