Chicago only managed 47 yards on 42 offensive plays. They only had one yard net by the pass after taking into account the 67 yards lost on nine sacks. After the game, head coach Matt Nagy took full responsibility.
“I obviously didn’t do a good enough job as a head coach to prepare for this attack.… It starts with me. It ends with me,” he said, via Chris Emma of 670 The Score.
Essentially, every statistic confirms a lousy start for rookie quarterback Justin Fields. The Bears have converted 1 of 12 third down attempts. Six series ended with negative footage. The Cleveland defense was responsible for 53 yards, including a 48-yard one that allowed Chicago to score its second field goal of the game, in penalty yards.
