    Jaguars Eek Out Win
    defeat Bears 21-10

    The Jacksonville Jaguars did not play like a team that was 4-0 on the season, but on the night in which Chicago WRs and DBs alike couldn't catch, they held on to victory.

    The first quarter saw a Jaguars offense confused by the Bears throughout, as they were unable to move the ball on the Bears. While Chicago had more success moving the ball, they were forced to settle for a field goal, taking a 3-0 lead. The Jaguars lone bright spot on offense was a HB screen pass that Maurice Jones-Drew took to the house in reply to the Chicago score. The 7-3 lead held for the Jaguars until the last minute of the half when an ill-advised pass by Jay Cutler was intercepted and returned for a touchdown by CB Aaron Ross. With the score, the Jaguars took a 14-3 lead into half.

    The second half was more of the same as both offenses struggled to move the ball, going scoreless in the third quarter. Chicago would finally get into the end zone early in the fourth on a short TD run by Michael Bush, set up by an interception of Jacksonville QB, Blaine Gabbert. Unfortunately for the Bears, the Jaguars would once again answered their score, this time on the only lengthy TD drive of the game. The TD run by backup Rashad Jennings not only gave the Jaguars a 21-10 lead, but also drained valuable time off the clock. The Bears would go to the air to attempt to come back, but drops would again thwart their efforts.

    AgenT Smith, Good Game! I think Madden decided you wouldn't win this game with all those drops you had, not to mention the penalties.
