Bears’ Trestman, offensive line impress in win over Bengals

CHICAGO- All eyes were on Marc Trestman as he made his debut for the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and the jury is still out.

The Bears looked, for the most part, as they always have, a defensive team. Charles Jennings had two interceptions and Tim Jennings did his Peanut impression with a forced fumble and recovery.

To the offense, Jay Cutler got sacked zero times. Zero. With two rookies in Kyle Long and Jordan Mills manning the right side of this offensive line, the Bears shut down the Bengals defensive line.

That was the unusual.

The usual? Brandon Marshall. Marshall had 8 receptions, for 104 yards, and one touchdown as the chemistry with Cutler is alive and kicking.

Matt Forte had 50 yards rushing with one touchdown and 40 yards receiving on four catches, as Trestman’s offense debuted.

Most importantly, despite all the changes, the Bears had chemistry, they had leadership, and when the Bengals lost their cool, the Bears kept theirs.

It’s only one game, but Marc Trestman led the Bears to a comeback win, and the offensive line held up.

The team gets it’s second big test when reigning MVP Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings come to town.
