Panthers 13 - 16 Bears summary, stats, scores and highlights | NFL Week 10

Update:
The Chicago Bears won their third game of the season after edging the Carolina Panthers in a low scoring Thrusday Night game from Soldier Field.

The Chicago Bears outlasted the Carolina Panthers in a low scoring affair to kick off Week 10 on Thursday Night. Tyson Bagent threw for 162 yards and D’Onta Foreman scored the Bears only touchdown in the 16-13 win from Soldier Field. 

Undrafted QB top No 1 overall pick

Justin Fields sat out for a fourth straight game which meant the undrafted, rookie quarterback who started the preseason as Chicago’s fourth stringer, would get the start against the No. 1 overall draft pick in last spring’s Draft. 

Neither team could get anything going on the offensive end, especially in the first half. It took a 78 yard Ihmir Smith-Marsette punt return to put the first points on the board and then the two teams retreated into a battle of field position and field goals. 

Bryce Young struggled to move the ball against the underrated Bears defense, going 21/38 for 185 yards. The Panthers had just 12 first downs, went 3/15 on third down and got in to the red zone just once, when they had to settle for one of Eddy Pineiro’s two successful field goals on the night. 

Bears still eyeing top spot in Draft

Cairo Santos kept the Bears in the game through the first two quarters, kicking three field goals to send Chicago to halftime down 10-9. The home side would take the lead after starting their sole touchdown drive from the CAR 38. Foreman and Bagent led the Bears inside the 10 yard line and Foreman got into the end zone for the first and only time, which would be enough for Chicago to seal their third win of the season

 

The Panthers kicked a field goal to start the fourth quarter, and had a late chance to tie it with a 59 yard field goal, but Piniero’s potential game tying effort fell short with under 2:00 to go and the Panthers dropped to 1-9. 

This game was really all about the draft picks after the Panthers traded their first round pick this year along with a handful of other picks in last years draft. The Bears want the Panthers to finish with the league’s worst record so they get the first pick in the draft and then will have their own pick sometime, presumably in the top 10. The Bear win was double as sweet as they got back into the win column, and they kept the Panthers at one win on the season, which is tied with Arizona as the worst record in the NFL.

D'Ontae Foreman seemed to get better and stronger as the game went on, and in the third quarter he punched in this 4 yard TD to give the Bears their first lead of the game. 

He went for 80 yards on 21 carries and the Bears rushed for a total of 133 yards. 

as.com

It was a battle of field position and the Bears won that battle most of the night. Yannick Ngakoue came up with a big sack deep in Panthers territory and that would force a punt that left a short field for Bagent and the Bears. 

as.com

Tyson Bagent didn't win the game for the Bears on Thursday night but he didn't lose it either. After turning the ball over 5 times last Sunday, the Bears held on to the ball all game long and Bagent went 20/33 for 162 yards. 

as.com

This is going to be a very short highlights segment, because there just weren't that many highlights to choose from in the Thursday Night game from Soldier Field. Neither team got their offense flowing, and the opening TD of the game came from Ihmir Smith-Marsette as he took this punt 79 yards to the house. 

It was a game that was dictated by field position and special teams, and Carolina jumped out to an early lead thanks to a bit of brilliance from their kick returner.

Tonight’s odds

The Bears return home as 3 point favorites over the Carolina Panthers and the Over/Under is set at 38. 

There are plenty of reasons to believe that this is going to be a low scoring game. Two rookie QBs with terrible offenses going head to head. The only way I see this game going over is if the QBs give up turnovers that either get taken for TDs or lead to TDs, which is very plausible, but I think both teams take care of the ball, putting a premium on the run game. 

Bears win 17-10.

Bagent back under center for Bears

No one knew who Tyson Bagent was before the season. Only the Bears die hard fans knew who he was once Week 1 kicked off, but he introduced himself to the world in his debut when he came on in relief for Justin Fields in the Bears loss to the Vikings in Week 6. He led Chicago to a win over the Raiders in his first start of his young career throwing for 162 yards and a TD, but in the two games since then, he has thrown just two TDs, and five INTs. The Bears have problems all over the board, but one of the things they are going to want to figure out is if they are sticking with Fields, Bagent, both or none before the season is over because they have draft picks and they will want to use them to bring happier days to the fans in Chicago.

Top pick blues 

Most No. 1 overall picks that are QBs come into the league having no idea what it’s like to lose. In high school and in college, they cruise through the competition usually in the running or winning state, or national championships along the way. Once they get to the NFL, there are bound to be some growing pains. Teams with No. 1 picks are usually there for a reason, and even though the Panthers traded with the Bears to get Young with the first pick in the draft, they were still a bad team last year. Now, Young is quickly finding out what it’s like to lose, while skimming the bottom of the just about every statistical category for a QB. His 1,375 yards are 27th among all QBs in the league, and of the QBs that have thrown 7 INTs or more, he has the second least amount of TDs with 8 (behind only Jimmy G).

Fields out tonight 

Justing Fields is known as a running quarterback. The Bears knew that when they drafted him, and they knew the risks that revolve around drafting a running quarterback as the face of your franchise. There has been an unproductive instability at the coaching and GM ranks in Chicago, and that hasn’t helped Fields’ situation. Add that to the injury problems he has had to deal with over the last few seasons and you start to understand why it’s been so difficult for him to flourish as a Bear. He has had flashed of brilliance this year, throwing 4 TDs in back to back games, against the Broncos and the Commanders but only one of those resulted in a win. Just as he was starting to find his rhythm, he broke his thumb against the Vikings and has been out ever since. He will be itching to get back under center to prove he is the right fit for the QB1 job in Chicago, but he will have to wait another week. He was listed as doubtful all week, and he has not recovered enough to make the start tonight against the Panthers.

Draft picks pending

The Panthers went all in for the top pick in last years draft, trading their No. 9 overall pick, a 2nd round draft pick (No. 61 overall) and their first round pick this year. They had their minds made up and they wanted Bryce Young with the top pick of the draft. The Bears, who probably had a hunch that this year wasn’t going to be a year that they competed in the NFC, happily traded away their top pick knowing that the Panthers were going to struggle this year as well. That means that the Bears are on the verge of potentially landing two Top 5 picks in the upcoming draft this spring. That’s what makes this matchup so interesting. The Bears know they have the Panthers draft pick, which means the longer they stay with 1 win the better chance they have of getting the first overall pick. On the other hand they want to finish as low as they can to ensure their draft pick lands as high up the draft order as possible. There are a lot of things to figure out in Chicago, but the priority for the rest of the season is figuring out if Justin Fields is the QB of the future.

Bears last week 

In his third start ever, Tyson Bagent went toe to toe with Derek Carr and the Saints, as both teams exchanged touchdowns for the first three quarters. It was 17-17 going into the final 15 minutes from the Caesars Super Dome, as Bagent went 18/30 for 220 and threw 2 TDs, but he also turned the ball over four times throwing three picks and fumbling once. The Bears had their chances to beat the Saints, but made mistake after mistake as Paulson Adebo came up with two picks and recovered one fumble in the first three quarters. Chicago had a final opportunity to tie the game up with just over two minutes left, but Bagent was strip sacked and the Saints sealed the game to drop the Bears to 2-7 on the season.

Panthers last week 

There are going to be more downs than ups for Bryce Young and the Panthers this year as they look to finally become relevant in the NFC. Two weeks ago they got their first win of the season, when Young beat CJ Stroud in a head to head battle between the No 1 and No 2 pick in the draft. The joy was short lived as the Colts defense shut down the Panthers, and actually out scored them as Kenny Moore picked off Young twice and took both INTs to the house for six. The Panthers outgained the Colts by almost 100 yards but the turnovers killed Carolina’s chances of stringing together two wins in a row.

We are live from Chicago

Hello everyone and welcome Windy City where the Bears return home after losing their last two games on the road to the Chargers and then then Saints. Their starting quarterback Justin Fields has been out from the last few games, and it seems as though he will be out for at least another weeks as the Bears get set to host the Panthers. Carolina followed up their first win of the season with a disappointing outing against the Colts last week. Nothing has been easy for No. 1 overall draft pick Bryce Young and the Panthers offense, but they will look to turn things around tonight in Chicago.
