Bears safety Eddie Jackson sprints 65 yards for TD

10318-Barkley-TW

It was the first TD run the Bears have allowed this season, and it ended the Bills' touchdown drought at 187 minutes and 19 seconds - dating to Peterman's 16-yard pass to Zay Jones in a 20-13 loss at Houston on October 14.

Linebacker Khalil Mack's presence was missed as the Bears only registered one sack, but as a unit performed much better limiting the Jets to just 10 points on offense.

The Bears also announced that TE Ben Braunecker (concussion) and DL Bilal Nichols (knee) did not make the trip to Buffalo for Sunday's game against the 2-6 Bills.

Could it get any worse in Buffalo? Inside linebackers, Roquan Smith and Danny Trevathan will be vital in employing this scheme.

Peterman was Buffalo's opening-game starter but has been benched twice this season for poor performances.

Two weeks ago the Bears faced their first real adversity of the Nagy era, riding a two-game losing streak and preparing to play without their Defensive MVP candidate in Mack and arguably their best offensive player in Allen Robinson.

Chicago's Mitchell Trubisky finished 12 for 20 for 135 yards with a 2-yard touchdown to tight end Trey Burton and an interception.

The Bears' 2018 outlook will come into focus between now and Thanksgiving, but they'll head into that critical three-game stretch against the NFC North buoyed by comfortable-to-dominant wins over the New York Jets and Bills. He played at the University at Buffalo.

Their fans are truly dedicated to supporting their home team as creating a hostile environment has motivated their team to upsets in years prior.

This will be a very tricky week for the Bears to be retooling the interior of their offensive line because of the Kyle Long injury.

Allowing an opposing team to convert on third downs is a huge crowd killer along with consistent scoring. If Buffalo's defense is holding the Bears offense to field goals than it is imperative for kicker Cody Parkey to convert on all of his attempts. The Bills out-gained the Bears, 264 to 190, while running 81 plays (to the Bears' 46) and possessing the ball for 34 minutes and three seconds (to the Bears' 25:57). Chicago also matched its win total from past year. Since then the Bears have lost three consecutive games dating back to 1991. "It's about coming out and getting the win as a team, and we dominated as a team in all three phases".
