So … that drive looked GOOD.
There was balance. A gutsy fourth-down call and conversion. Misdirection. Some new wrinkles. And ultimately this:
You can't keep @MontgomerDavid down! Opening drive SCORE!

That short touchdown plunge by David Montgomery opens the scoring and gives the Bears a 7-0 lead after Cairo Santos’ PAT. Montgomery already has 7 carries and 27 rushing yards. He’ll need more if the Bears are going to win this game. Nevertheless, it’s a good start for Chicago’s football team.
