Chiefs Vs. Bears Final Score: Chicago Loses 10-3 After Weak Offensive Effort

The Chicago Bears' defense has never really been the problem this season, and things were no different on Sunday as the Bears were defeated 10-3 by the Kansas City Chiefs at home. Chicago's defense limited Kansas City to just ten points and 252 total yards, but it was only able to force one turnover and the offense couldn't muster much production after watching running back Matt Forte go down with an injury.

Chicago almost took the lead into halftime, but Kansas City scored a last-second touchdown on a hail mary to conclude the first half. That play seemed to take the wind out of Chicago's sails, as the offense stumbled through the entire game and the defense couldn't make enough big plays to change the course of the game. The Chiefs offense was pretty limited for most of the game, but the hail mary pass as time expired in the second quarter was enough to give Kansas City the victory.

It's another disappointing loss for the Bears, who move to 7-5 on the season after losing a second consecutive game with Caleb Hanie at quarterback. The team appeared to be establishing itself as one of the league's elite in the previous weeks, but Jay Cutler's possibly season-ending injury has essentially halted those aspirations. For now, the team is trying to win with defense, and that unit did its part on Sunday, but Chicago is going to have a tough time winning if it's only scoring three points. 

The Bears are still definitely in the playoff mix at 7-5, but they're going to have to win at least two, and probably three, of their final four games if they want to land a wild card spot.
