The Chicago Bears last second bid to rally from a 20-point fourth quarter deficit fell 7-yards short Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field when the Bears were unable to punch it in for a game-tying touchdown, eventually losing 27-21 to Tennessee. The Bears fall to 2-9 on the year, while the Titans even their mark to 6-6.

With the game on the line in the final minute, the Bears failed on four pass attempts  at the Tennessee 7, including costly drops on first down by a wide-open Josh Bellamy and fourth-down by a sliding Deonte Thompson. Dropped passes were a consistent theme all afternoon for Chicago, as receivers bobbled at least 10 balls that were in their grasp. The drops overshadowed a strong finish by Bears backup QB Matt Barkley.

“There were a lot of different guys out there that haven’t been in the position to catch or drop balls very many times. Those guys fought hard. They did a lot of good things. There were some good catches as well as drops,” summarized Bears head coach John Fox. “So just like anytime, if the result isn’t exactly what you were looking for, you go back to the drawing board and you learn from it.”
