    Detroit, MI -- The Chicago Bears certainly turned heads in their first game of the season blanking rival Detroit 29-0 in front of 65,000 at Ford Field. Going into the season, the Bears had a lot of questions on both sides of the ball. How is their second year quarterback going to rebound from a lackluster rookie season, can he live up to his first round billing? Will second year running back Amond Redmond continue to improve a rushing attack that hasn't been very good since Matt Forte's departure years ago? Can the secondary contain the passing attack? Will the defensive line generate a better pass rush and force quarterbacks to make poor decisions?

    All indications at this point are the Bears are heading in the right direction. QB Alan Fulton was efficient all game, going 15 for 25 for 210 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions. Redmond was efficient gaining 69 yards on 16 attempts and moving the chains when he needed to. Rookie WR Tremondae Henderson, the speeder showed why he was given the starting nod getting by his defender to haul in a 54 yard touchdown late in the second quarter.

    Defensively, the Bears were able to generate some pressure, and effectively shut down the Lions rushing attack holding Dimitrios Lawson to 36 yards on 13 attempts. The secondary did their job gaining three key interceptions, one when their backs were against the wall and the Lions were driving, another late in the second quarter which led to an easy Bears touchdown, and the third by rookie corner back DeMarkus Blue to seal the game.

    The game started out slow with both sides struggling to get things going on offense. The Bears were able to drive the ball, but couldn't cap off their efforts for touchdowns and had to settle for field goals. However, later in the second quarter due to some turnovers, the Bears were able to get things going and produce some touchdowns to create some separation.

    The second half the Bears continued to put up points, thanks to stout defensive play and methodical offensive drives. The game was sealed late when rookie corner back DeMarkus Blue was able to intercept quarterback Parker Talbott.

    Next week the Bears face a tough test in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are coming off a 27-0 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
