Grading the Chicago Bears’ offense, defense & special teams vs. Atlanta

Call it what you will but the Chicago Bears week six win could end up being a season saver. For the first time all season, the Bears played a complete game for all four quarters and dominated each facet of their 27-13 win. The defense gave up 13 points, which happens to be the lowest it has been in the Trestman/Tucker era. On top of it all, the team was missing four starters on defense...

What Happened o the Bears "Elite" Offense?

While the defense was bad for the Chicago Bears in 2013, for once the team's offense was something to be proud. Finishing 2nd in the league in points scored, 5th in passing yards and 8th in total yards, it was the offense that was the Bears' better half last season.
