It took until the early part of the fourth quarter, but the Chicago Bears finally have a touchdown.
Welcome to the team, Jimmy Graham:
It wasn’t pretty. And the first touchdown-scoring drive of the year came only after the Bears faced a 17-point deficit. But it happened.
Mitchell Trubisky connected on a 2-yard touchdown toss to Graham. It capped an 11-play, 59-yard drive that chewed up 4 minutes, 40 seconds of game time. Adding Cairo Santos’ extra point trimmed the Bears’ deficit to 10 with 13:39 left in regulation.
The Bears still have a climb. But mathematically speaking, they’re not done yet.
