The Bears played against the Seahawks in Seattle with Jimmy Clausen as their starting quarterback. Jay Cutler, dealing with a hamstring injury, held a tablet on the sideline. Alshon Jeffery also didn't play in the game. Wide receiver Kevin White, the team's first-round draft pick, is still out with an injury.
So, the game went pretty much as expected. The Seahawks hammered the Bears, winning 26-0.
The Bears defense actually played much better than the final score indicated. At halftime, the score was 6-0. One of the touchdowns in the second half came on a kick return.
That graphic is a bit misleading. Because the Bears ended up getting another drive … which ended in a punt ... which means the Bears punted on all 10 of their drives.
Of course, this is exactly what should have happened. The Bears traveled to Seattle. They played the Seahawks. Their quarterback was Jimmy Clausen. Their best active wide receiver was Eddie Royal.
There's no mystery here. Without Jay Cutler, the Bears go from a team that can at least hang with the Packers and Cardinals to a team that can't muster more than 63 passing yards over the course of four quarters.
At least Jay Cutler's hair game is still on point.
