Seeing red: Bears new red-zone offense makes impression

The offense scored repeatedly in the red zone, with a Jay Cutler pass to Brandon Marshall for one TD and a Josh McCown flip to Alshon Jeffery standing out along with a one-handed Michael Bush grab of a Cutler swing pass.

Jeffery flashed again with a reaching grab over cornerback Jeremy Ware of a McCown pass, precisely the kind of grab the Bears envisioned when they made him their second-round pick in this years draft.

Once you get down there you need to get touchdowns so thats why we spent a lot of time there tonight, Lovie Smith said.

Jeffery also scored on a 45-yard aerial over safety Chris Conte (who was without the aid of a pass rush since it was in the fan-favorite receivers-vs.-DBs session, which most definitely favors receivers).

Watch Matt Forte attack Lance Briggs with a cardboard box, because why not

It's gameday. 

The Patriots are in town. 

Khalil Mack is probably playing with a significant injury. 

Stressed out? Don't blame you. So enjoy this video of Matt Forte pranking Lance Briggs:

The best pranks are the most simple ones.

WE"LL DO IT LIVE. 

Welcome back, gang. It feels like only a week ago we were all in Miami, watching one of the drunkest Bears games we've seen in a while. No rest for the weary, though, and the Bears are back in Chicago and oh god they're playing Tom Brady and the Patriots. Khalil Mack WILL play, though, and Rob Gronkowski will NOT. One step at a time. 

As always, J.J. Stankevitz will be your eyes and ears from Soldier; give him a follow. Lorin Cox's tweets are also worth your time.
