Fans roasted the Chicago Bears over their inability to convert fourth downs in their 24-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on “Monday Night Football” at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.

The Bears kicked a field goal on their third possession of the game. They didn’t add any points until late in the fourth quarter when they got a defensive touchdown off a turnover.

Down 24-3 late in the third quarter, the Bears decided to go for it on 4th-and-1 at their 34. Cordarrelle Patterson received a pitch to the left and was tackled by Terrell Lewis for a loss of two yards.

The Twitter reactions were not kind.

On their next possession, the Bears drove to the Rams’ 4-yard line. They went for it on 4th-and-goal, but Nick Foles was sacked for a loss of eight. The reactions were more of the same.

Many analysts already doubted the strength of the Bears despite a 5-1 record entering the game against the Rams. The dominating loss will only validate those critics.
