The Chicago Bears were supposed to go out there on Thursday night and show the Cincinnati Bengals their new offense. While they accomplished that in a technical sense, the Bears first-team offense struggled to get much of anything going with Mitch Truisky on the field. The second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft only completed two of his four passing attempts for four yards and was sacked once for a loss of eight yards, not exactly the start the offense was looking for against the Bengals.

Despite the first-team offense struggling to do much, there were some flashes by other players in the game. Tyler Bray completed 18 of his 27 passing attempts for 219 yards with one interception and second-string quarterback Chase Daniel completed eight of his 12 passing attempts for 76 yards with one interception. The star of the show on offense for the Bears this week was rookie running back Ryan Nall. He ripped off a run of 69 yards and finished the contest with 95 yards on nine carries for an average of 10 yards per carry. He also caught one pass for nine yards.

Tight end Daniel Brown led the way in the passing game, catching five passes for 90 yards with a long of 56 yards. 2017 fan favorite Tanner Gentry caught six passes for 54 yards on 11 targets with a long of 16 yards, while second-year tight end Adam Shaheen caught three passes for 54 yards on three targets with a long of 29 yards.

The defense did not exactly play lights out football either for the Bears. John Timu led the way with eight tackles and one tackle for loss and Kyle Fuller intercepted an Andy Dalton pass and returned it for a touchdown.  A week after getting to the quarterback early and often, the Bears only recorded one sack on Thursday and that came from defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris.
