Justin Fields

These 4 Bears deserve game balls despite Week 9 loss to Dolphins

For the second week in a row, a Chicago Bears loss actually… feels good.

The Bears fell to the Dolphins, 32-35, in Week 9 in a game that looked like a possible blowout early. Then Justin Fields happened. More on that later.

The defense gave up touchdowns in bunches early but tightened up considerably in the second half. On the final drive for the Bears, with a chance to tie or take the lead, they ultimately fell short thanks to a horrendous defensive pass interference against Chase Claypool that went uncalled and an untimely drop on fourth down by wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown.

But there was more positive than negative on Sunday, and we have some game balls to prove it.
