Week 5: at Kansas City Chiefs

All QB vs KC

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Jay Cutler saved the Bears from embarrassment at Oakland last week, and actually engineered a solid game with 28/43 for 281 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown. Martellus Bennett (13 targets for 11/83/1 receiving), Eddie Royal (10 for 7/54/1) and Marquess Wilson (nine for 6/80/0) formed the nucleus of this non-Alshon-Jeffery attack - Jeffery's troublesome calf injury continues to force him to the sidelines. Stay Tuned to's Players in the News as the weekend approaches to see if Jeffery can get back in the mix for this contest in Kansas City. Speaking of Kansas City, the Chiefs lurk in raucous Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday afternoon - to date, the K.C. pass D has been poor, averaging 295.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with a league-worst 11 passing scores given out over just four games, vs. two interceptions (tied for 21st in the NFL) and nine sacks generated so far (tied for ninth). Last week, they coughed up 17/24 for 321 net passing yards, one TD and zero interceptions to the Bengals' attack. NO too good, folks. Advantage, Chicago, even though the 12th-man makes things rough in Arrowhead.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 3 vs SEA (9 / 17 / 63 / 0 / 0 pass, 3 / 13 / 0 rush)

Jimmy Clausen did not fare well in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Making his first start of the season, Clausen completed only 9-of-17 passes for 63 yards. Clausen led the Bears on 10 drives, and all 10 drives ended with a punt -- the first time such a feat has been accomplished since 1980, according to ESPN Stats and Information. Multiple factors were working against Clausen against the Seahawks -- the absence of receivers Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White and a banged-up offensive line (Jermon Bushrod left the game early due to injury and did not return). Clausen was sacked twice and hit six times in total. Pressure from Seattle's defense hurried up the Bears offense so much that Clausen only had two throws that traveled at least 15 yards downfield. Complicating matters is the fact that Clausen was working with a wide receiver group led by Eddie Royal and Josh Bellamy, going up against the vaunted Seattle secondary. It was a losing proposition all around. Clausen now is 1-11 in his career as a starting quarterback. If there's one thing we learned Sunday it's that the Bears' offense will go nowhere as long as Clausen is under center.

2015 Week 2 vs ARI (14 / 23 / 121 / 0 / 1 pass, 2 / -5 / 0 rush)

Newsflash: Jimmy Clausen is not a good quarterback. In Sunday's loss, Clausen didn't even look like an average quarterback. After Jay Cutler left the game with a hamstring injury, Clausen was thrust into action with the Bears trailing by double digits. The former Notre Dame quarterback completed 14-of-23 passes for 121 yards and an interception, while failing to lead the offense to a first down on six of the nine possessions he was under center.
