Twitter Reacts To Carolina Panthers Loss To Chicago Bears”

With Cam Newton on the field for the Panthers and rookie Mitch Trubisky serving as quarterback from the Bears, the opposite was the expected outcome of this matchup.

Rookie safety Eddie Jackson led a dominant defensive performance that carried the Bears to an impressive 17-3 win over the Carolina Panthers Sunday at Soldier Field.

Jackson staked the Bears to a 14-0 second-quarter lead by returning a fumble 75 yards for a touchdown and bringing back an interception 76 yards for a score.

I'm not sure what's gotten into the Chicago Bears defense of late, but somehow, they seem to be taking advantage of every opportunity they missed out on over the past two years to make big plays. The Panthers dropped to 4-3 with their second straight loss.

Newton completed 21 of 34 passes for 211 yards and ran for a team-high 50. The No. 2 overall pick threw a 70-yard pass to Tarik Cohen, but did little else. He was sacked four times, rushed twice for 8 yards (not counting kneel downs at the end of the game) and only threw the ball seven times. Last week, Adrian Amos picked up a long interception return for a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens.

Jackson's big day came exactly one year after he broke his leg playing for Alabama against Texas A&M. Jackson scooped it up and raced down the left sideline to the end zone. He said the botched lateral and deflected pass were plays that were out of Newton's hands. And then midway through the fourth quarter Newton made a frightful decision to throw to a well-covered Christian McCaffrey, resulting in his second interception. However, it was actually three players on that side of the ball that finished within the Top 5 for highest grades for the Carolina Panthers from Pro Football Focus.

The Bears only called about a dozen passing plays, and poor offensive-line play meant Trubisky spent almost half of them running for his life. He was hurt in a season-opening win over San Francisco. Kalil left on the second drive after aggravating the neck injury that kept him out the past five games.

On the heels of consecutive games in which the Panthers' simple but traditionally successful power running game was stymied, Carolina wanted to reestablish it in what figured to be a low-scoring game.
