Bears Report Card: How we graded the Bears’ offense in Week 1 loss to Rams

By Bryan Perez

The Chicago Bears lost in Week 1’s Sunday night opener in blowout fashion to the Los Angeles Rams, 34-14, in a game that was about as lopsided as the final score would indicate.

Here’s how we graded each position group.
