Read what writers around the country are saying about the Bears following Sunday's 21-13 win over the Buccaneers at Soldier Field.
Comments: "It was an ugly affair for the most part, but at least Chicago's embattled defense rose to the occasion. Mel Tucker's defensive unit sacked Bucs quarterback Josh McCown five times and produced four takeaways." – Don Banks Read more
Comments: "The Bears became only the second team this season to win a game despite putting up less than 205 total yards. When you win like that, it's usually thanks to your defense and that was the case against Tampa." – John Breech Read more
Comments: "Lovie Smith's return to Chicago turned into yet another embarrassment for the Bucs. Three turnovers in the third quarter, including two by former Bears backup Josh McCown, handed the Bears the game." – John Clayton Read more
Comments: "(Jay Cutler's) performance wasn't sexy — 17 of 27 for 130 yards and a TD — but was good enough to lead the Bears to a second straight victory, largely because Cutler produced his first INT-free outing since Oct. 12." – Nate Davis Read more
Comments: "Chicago capitalized off two Josh McCown turnovers deep in the Bucs' own end to take control of the game early in the third quarter and hang on." - Kevin Patra Read more
