We’re live blogging the Chicago Bears at the Baltimore Ravens.
Kickoff is approaching in Baltimore… Don’t forget to set your fantasy lineups! Then read the latest from Adam Hoge to get you ready for Bears-Ravens: http://wgnradio.com/2017/10/11/hoges-10-bears-things-dowell-loggains-has-his-heisman-moment/
The Bears catch a break as one of Baltimore’s playmakers will not be available: https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/919582114558947328
John Fox will not shave until the Bears win again.
Nice third down stop for the Bears D.
Great punt from Baltimore pins the Bears inside the 10.
Not sure what Kristina Pink said on that sideline report. Bears are young, I think?
Always nice to see Ed Hochuli on the field.
True. And it’s even better when he makes a call that gives the Bears a first down!
Nice third down conversion by Trubisky!
Great throw by #10
I think Trubisky-Gentry will be a winning combination today.
Solid two runs by Tarik Cohen to give the Bears another first down.
Bears drive comes up short, but a good punt pins the Ravens down deep in their own territory.
Trubisky processes the field so well. Very impressive for a rookie.

I like the idea of the no-huddle offense, despite not converting on 3rd down.
Trevathan with the sack! Welcome back!
Great series from Danny Trevathan
Would love to see the Bears create some turnovers today. This tweet from Adam Hoge early in the week is very telling.
Yikes! And Baltimore is near the top of the league in interceptions.
Nice run by Howard to start this series. Let’s get the running game going today.
Also, my fantasy team would appreciate a Howard TD or two.
Third target to Gentry. Zero completions.
Gonna want to block Suggs
The Bears are not going the right way.
Solid 3rd down play call. Still well short of the first down marker.
Leonard Floyd played really well Monday night. Continues that today by forcing a hold.
Trevathan is fired up today.
Hopefully not too fired up. Don’t want to see him get suspended again…
Looks like the Bears had some sort of trick play called on the punt return that never materialized.
Bears showing potential for a reverse on the punt return with Eddie Jackson and Tarik Cohen both deep.
End of first quarter and we are scoreless.
First quarter poll: Who had the better punter?
I’m going with the Ravens punter because his name sounds like one of the finest singers of all time.
Four penalties for the Ravens already. Bears need to take advantage of the miscues.
Terrific run by Trubisky. Bear now 1st and 10 at the Baltimore 12.
MT10 showing some athleticism on 3rd down scramble
Interesting 3rd down formation
3 backs and a TE split out wide
Trubisky just looks like he has command of the huddle. I like that.
Barth connects on the FG and the Bears lead 3-0.
Happy to see Trubisky show some restraint on that third down play and not try to force a bad pass.
Absolutely. Very composed for his 2nd start. No reason to force it there. Take the 3 points. Especially early on the road.
And the defense has been able to rest. Baltimore with just one first down so far.
Big run for the Ravens. You can call me Captain Jinx.
I never start any of my fantasy players when they are playing the Bears. That is why Collins is on my bench right now.
I had Maclin playing in 2 leagues until about 11:50.
Still no interceptions, but they’ll take ’em however they can get ’em.
Quick 3 and out.
Not a good year to be a captain…
Kyle Fuller has been impressive this year after a mysterious 2016 season.
Callahan with an INT and impressive return. Will it stand? Is it going to be challenged?
Regardless of whether it stands, they may have gotten away with an illegal hit. Didn’t see any flag for hitting a defenseless receiver.
Wow! Tarik Cohen with a TD pass to Miller!!!!
Dowell Laggains reaches into the bag of tricks for another great play call
Looking forward to Adam Hoge’s deep dive into the history of that play call.
Trubisky now tied for 2nd on the team in TD passes this season.
I know Cohen is getting a lot of credit for that pass, but let’s not overlook that catch by Miller.
Bears get a break as a dropped Ravens pass leads to fourth down and a punt.
Baltimore is 0-6 on 3rd down. Bears get a chance to increase their lead heading into halftime.
Bears up 10-0 with two minutes left in the first half.
Is there a problem with beavers destroying pants?
Trubisky sacked so the Bears have to punt away.
1:40 left in the half. Let’s keep the Ravens from getting some points here.
Flacco converts on 3rd and 7 to keep their drive going.
Flacco on target this drive.
Ravens use their final timeout with :55 remaining in the half
Christian Jones with a questionable unnecessary roughness call. Keeps the Ravens drive alive.
Bears first penalty is a costly one.
14 seconds remain. A sack could end the half.
Bears D bends but does not break. Ravens on for a FG attempt.
Bears head to the locker room with a 10-3 lead and get the ball to begin the 2nd half.
Give the Hoge and Jahns voicemail line a call and let them know what you thought about the first half. 312-222-5050.
And tune into WGN Radio to listen to Hamp, OB and Koz after the game ends.
Howard with a big run on 3rd and 1.
Three nice runs by Howard to start the second half. Bears offense keeping it simple. Setting up play-action.
Bears first drive of the second half stalls around mid-field. Offense failing to convert on third down. Trubisky had time, but no open receivers.
Ravens 3rd defense has been strong. Solid coverage across the board.
Not too surprising, I guess, when your top receivers are Gentry, Bellamy, Miller, etc.
Agreed. Shaheen should be a mismatch nightmare, but he’s hardly ever on the field.
Yeah, what’s with Shaheen? Is blocking an issue with him?
Sack for the Bears! Bears front four/seven looking strong today.
The defense has been swarming to the ball too.
Trubisky with just 2 completions thus far. The gameplan clearly is to run the ball, but I want to see him air one out this drive.
8:57 to go in the 3rd quarter. Kendall Wright has the first catch by a wide receiver for the Bears.
Trubisky! TD pass to Sims!
Enjoyable TD celebration to boot.
Wait, what just happened here?
Well, that is deflating.
Tough break for the Bears. That being said, can’t get caught ball watching. Gotta play to the whistle.
And Benny Cunningham is not good at tackling.
Trubsiky’s best play of the day results in no yards gained, just preventing the Ravens from scoring.
Phew! Bears got lucky there. Horrible snap to Trubisky, but was able to retrieve the ball and throw it away before any damage.
Probably a good idea to play it safe there. Bears offense looked confused the entire series.
Yep. Baltimore was in the backfield the entire possession.
There goes my fantasy football season.
Strong showing from the Bears defense today.
Bears having some success running right up the middle of the Ravens’ defense.
Oh no! Cohen fumbles and Ravens recover!
Didn’t take much for Weddle to knock that out of Cohen’s hands. Have to be stronger with the ball.
Bad day for special teams. McManis and Cunningham injuries in addition to allowing the kickoff return for a TD.
Fourth quarter begins with the Bears leading 17-10. Baltimore driving deep in Bears territory.
Remember when Bears special teams were a strength? Dave Toub?
We talked about him on the most recent episode of Hoge and Jahns. Toub deserves a head coaching job.
Flacco was about five yards beyond the line of scrimmage on that one. Bad play.
Bears benefit from a boneheaded play by Flacco.
Ravens convert the FG. Bears lead trimmed. Now up 17-13.
Fumble or incomplete pass?
Another turnover forced by the Ravens. Trubisky didn’t have a chance on that one.
Bears trying to hand the Ravens a victory.
Time for the defense to come up big again.
4th and short for the Ravens…
Timeout Baltimore. Will they go for it or play field position? Their defense has played really well the last couple possessions.
Leonard Floyd finally playing like a top 10 pick. He has been a terror for RTs the last couple weeks.
That was an unexpected turn of events!
Bears INT by Amos who returns it for a TD!
Adrian Amos’ first career interception is a pick 6
Terrific defense by Fuller too. Solid game today.
90 yards! Wow!
Both interceptions for the Bears have come on tipped balls. #TipDrill
PAT is good and Bears lead 24-13 with 5:08 remaining.
Great stat from the Fox analyst — I believe it’s Ronde Barber. Kyle Fuller has been targeted nine times today, has allowed just one completion.
The guy who took Amos’ job was impressed by that INT.
Another good play by Fuller.
Kyle Fuller with another pass breakup.
Bears hand Baltimore a first down on 4th & 4 by jumping offsides.
Oh boy. Floyd a little too anxious. Offsides penalty gives the Ravens another set of downs.
Getting to the point where it’s surprising that Flacco continues to throw to Fuller’s side. Basically ignores everything to his left.
50 yard FG by Tucker is good. 24-16 Bears.
2:56 left to play. Bears just need to sustain a drive and will earn their 2nd victory of the season.
One first down by the Bears should be good enough to seal the deal for the Bears. May need two.
Crucial 3rd and 1 coming up for the Bears. 2 minute warning.
Keep it simple. Run the ball, make Baltimore use their last timeout even if you’re not able to get the first down.
Howard stuffed on 3rd and 1. Bears to punt it away giving the Ravens and Flacco one more shot.
Ravens make the stop. O’Donnell on to punt.
Ravens need a two-point conversion to tie after returning a punt for a TD
And the Ravens convert. Game tied with 1:37 left.
Time for Trubisky to win it for the Bears.
As disappointing as it is to the Ravens comeback. It’s beneficial for the Bears to see Trubsiky in another two-minute drill situation.
Crowd has come to life in Baltimore. I wonder how many people left early…
Jordan Howard runs it out of bounds allowing the Ravens to get the ball back.
Not a smart play there by Howard. Won’t take much to get in Tucker’s range.
Can’t believe the Ravens threw it in the middle of the field on that play. Time ran out on em. Heading to overtime tied at 24.
Marion Barber ran the ball out of bounds in a kill-the-clock situation in Denver a few years ago. Led to the Bears not making the playoffs and Lovie Smith losing his job.
Bears start with the ball in overtime. 1st and 10 from their own 20.
Trubisky sacked on 1st & 20. Long way to go for a first…
Not a good time for a shank.
Muffed punt from O’Donnell. Ravens only need a field goal to win.
Ravens start their drive at their own 40.
The 6th 3-and-out for the Ravens. Bears get the ball back.
Bears start the next drive at their own 7.
Howard with a monster run!
Howard refuses to give up and barrels down the line for a huge gain!
53 yard run. Ball on Ravens 40.
Dangerous pass by Trubisky. Lucky there wasn’t a pick-6 there.
Trubusky avoids the pressure and finds Wright in the middle of the field for the first down.
Amazing pass from Trubisky to Wright! Avoided a heavy rush and Wright makes a great grab. Definitely in FG position.
Here we go! Barth to attempt a game-winning kick.
Jordan Howard’s 37th rushing attempt sets the Bears on the left hash for a 40-yard game winning FG attempt
BARTH! Bears win!
First win for Mr. Biscuit.
Tune in to 720 for the BEST Bears post-game with Hamp, OB & Koz.
