Some weeks are better than others for the Bears. Here’s how three Bears fared in Sunday’s 16-14 win against the Cardinals:
Bears defensive back Sherrick McManis had an interception and a sack against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals last eight drives ended in punt, punt, punt, interception, interception, fumble, interception, and McManis’ game-clinching sack.
Cornerback Prince Amukamara hurt his left hamstring during safety Eddie Jackson’s third-quarter interception, is due for an MRI on Monday.
Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky had more ups and downs against the Cardinals.
After his miss, Bears kicker Cody Parkey made all three attempts — of 20, 41 and 43 yards.
Jordan Howard finished with 24 carries for 61 yards, averaging less than half as many yards per carry as he did in the Bears’ opener.
