The Chicago Bears fell to the Cincinnati Bengals in their Preseason Week One bout by the score of 30-27. Here are the grades for each of the Bears positions

It might just be the preseason, but football is back.

The Chicago Bears played in their second preseason game on Thursday after last week’s Hall of Fame Game.

Unfortunately, the Bears suffered the same result as last week, as they lost their second-consecutive preseason game on Thursday.

While 0-2 isn’t pretty, everything in the preseason must be taken with a grain of salt. The offensive starters played just two series. Starting running back Jordan Howard, and starting wide receivers Taylor Gabriel and Allen Robinson all did not play.

The Bears even held the lead at one point in the fourth quarter, before their third and fourth-team players eventually blew the lead.

All-in-all, the preseason should be used for two things; position battles and shaking off the rust.

No first-teamers are going to lose their jobs as a result of a bad preseason game. As Bears head coach Matt Nagy indicated earlier this week, the Bears aren’t going to reveal anything about their offense in the preseason.

However, we can still use the preseason to evaluate players, and positions as a whole. While it may not reveal anything about what we can expect for the regular season, it’s still good to evaluate where players and positions stand as the season comes closer.
