Can the Bears hold on and get their second win at Soldier Field this season, or will Jacksonville find a 4th quarter surge and ruin the Bears hopes for a less sucky week? On Jacksonville's fourth play of the drive, the quarterback connected with wide receiver Arrelious Benn in single coverage. This week, Mariota plays the Cleveland Browns. It doesn't take a football genius to figure out why they are losing. Eventually the offense found their rhythm and started to pick up yards and points and eventually thanks to a heads up play by Benn, ended up stealing a victory from the jaws of defeat. Injury? Porter - whose end-zone interception on the Jaguars' first drive helped the Bears pitch a shutout for the first three quarters - limped to the locker room with an ankle injury after the touchdown. The Chicago linebacker rattled Bortles, knocking the ball loose. I'm expecting him to tear it up Sunday, and think he could very well throw for over 250 yards and 2 touchdowns. Running back Jordan Howard was next to Hoyer in the shotgun.
The defense played respectably but couldn't make a play when it needed one. The Jaguars then easily ran out the clock.
Chicago reached the red zone four times on Sunday but converted just one of those opportunities for a touchdown, giving them a red zone efficiency of just 25 percent.
The Bears' offense produced 389 yards after racking up 522 in last week's 29-23 loss at Indianapolis. Defensive deficiencies get exposed in fourth quarters.
Allen Robinson, Jacksonville: Coming off last week's bye, Allen Robinson has been hot of late posting back to back games with at least 5 catches, 50 yards, and a score.
The Bears need to find some way to fix their issues.

The Philippines is a crucial American ally in South East Asia, serving as a guard against Chinese influence. One recent example of cooperation: the Enhanced Defense Coordination Agreement.
Myers' 30-yard field goal with 4:59 remaining got the Jaguars to within 16-10 after Chicago's Connor Barth had given the Bears a six-point lead with his third field goal.
"We just can't mess anything up if we expect to win ballgames in the National Football League", right guard Kyle Long said. Marvin Jones, Anquan Boldin and Andre Roberts also caught TDs for the Lions. He and Porter each slipped and hit the ground after the pass was hauled in; realizing he was never touched, Benn got to his feet and outran the defense for a go-ahead 51-yard touchdown. I'm expecting Jones to torch the iffy Rams secondary all day. Chicago converted seven of its first 10 third downs before failing to convert on seven chances in the second half. He had 181 yards and a total of 9 catches. Jason Myers added the extra point to give the Jaguars a one-point lead.
It was a game of two halves in many ways. But this offense just can't get out of its own way.
This time, quarterback Brian Hoyer picked the right receiver but again came up with the wrong result that ruined another Sunday for the Bears.
When offensive coordinator Greg Olson put the game on Bortles' shoulders in the fourth quarter, though, the former Central Florida standout delivered. His completion rate is now ranked 1st in the league at 71.4, and he has been especially good lately. The Jaguars pass defense has really struggled lately.
