(670 The Score) The Bears’ offense has been bad. We knew that in Chicago entering Monday night, but it was quickly and forcefully reinforced in a primetime game as the Bears lost 24-10 to the Rams.
The Bears’ best push for an offensive touchdown in the game came after they navigated into the red zone and to the Rams’ 9-yard line while trailing 17-3 in the third quarter. The hope was short-lived, as quarterback Nick Foles threw an interception on a pass to the back of the end zone that was tipped. Out for the year because of a torn ACL, Bears running back Tarik Cohen had a reaction similar to the average fan watching from home.
When the Bears were stopped on a fourth-and-1 play late in the third quarter to turn the ball over on downs while trailing by three touchdowns, Cohen expanded on his previous thought.
Cohen sprinkled in a few tweets while the Bears were playing. His belief was the non-existent running game needed to get going. Entering play Monday, the Bears were 31st in the NFL in rushing yards per game. They rushed 17 times for 49 yards against the Rams.
