One half into the 2013 regular season for the Chicago Bears, and the team looks no different from 2012.
The Bears got off to an early start in the first quarter. Charles Tillman made his first of two interceptions in the first quarter and the Bears offense converted that into points when quarterback Jay Cutler tossed a touchdown pass to new tight-end Martellus Bennett.
In the second quarter, Bengals’ quarterback Andy Dalton exploited the Bears’ cornerbacks with wide receiver A.J. Green. Green scored his second touchdown of the game in the second quarter.
The Bears have struggled to generate any form of consistency on offense. Bears head coach Marc Trestman has been cautious in his play calling on offense and that resulted in not much success for the Bears in the first half. One positive for the Bears is that the offensive line has held up on passing plays.
That being said, the Bears defense has kept the team within striking distance. It will be interesting to see what adjustments Trestman will make for the second half.
Towards the end of the first half, Robbie Gould made a career long 58-yard field goal cutting the Bengals lead to 14-10
