First quarter report

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It may or may not be a bad sign, but Jay Cutler threw his first interception before he threw his first touchdown pass and the Bears trailed the Lions 7-3 after the first quarter.

The Bears offense looked efficent on the first drive of the game until it got near the goal line. On third-and-goal from the 1, Lions rookie Ndamukong Suh got good penetration on Bears' tackle Frank Omiyale, which contributed to Matt Forte getting stopped cold for no gain. The Bears settled for a 20-yard field goal.

Cutler's first interception of the season came on the Bears' second drive. First, the pass, intended for Johnny Knox, was batted into the air by Julius Peterson and then batted again by safety C.C. Brown before it fell into the waiting arms of rookie free-agent Aaron Berry. The turnover set up a seven-yard, 42-yard drive that was capped by a seven-yard scoring run by rookie Jahvid Best.

Cutler completed 5 of 7 passes for 91 yards in the quarter while Matt Stafford completed 4 of 6 for 22 yards. Devin Aromashodu dropped what would've been a touchdown pass, as well.
