Last year the Bears struggled in the red zone, so this summer, working on that part of the game has been important to Coach Lovie Smith. Last night Jay Cutler completed nine of 12 passes garnering eight touchdowns and no interceptions. Last season he completeld only 19 touchdown passes and had six interceptions in the red zone.
The Bears as a team scored only 24 touchdowns on 51 possessions while inside the red zone last season. They ranked 27th in the league with a 47.1 percent rate.
Devin Hester is also adjusting well to the new offense, catching just about every ball thrown in his direction.
