The first quarter of Sunday's game between the Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs didn't include much offense, as the two teams are scoreless going into the game's second period. The two teams combined for just 66 yards of total offense, while the Bears failed to even get a first down.
It was a particularly brutal quarter for Chicago's offense, with the team covering just 20 total yards. In the midst of all of this, they lost star running back Matt Forte to injury, too, just furthering the issues of an already struggling unit. The Chiefs had a bit more success on offense in the first quarter, getting 37 yards rushing and 27 yards passing from Tyler Palko, but the Bears forced numerous mistakes.
The big Chiefs mistake was on special teams, though, when Jalil Brown muffed a punt. The Bears recovered the ball in Chiefs territory, but were unable to move into Robbie Gould's field goal range. Chicago also sacked Palko twice in the first quarter.
