Highlights from the Bucs’ Week Five loss to the Bears

It was pretty bad.

Welp. That sucked. At least there were some decent plays to come out of the Bucs’ most recent disaster.


Carlton Davis III comes up with a big-time interception

The Bears had just converted a 2nd and 8 to move into field goal range, but Allen Robinson II bobbles a pass from Nick Foles and Davis is right there to make the interception.

Tyler Johnson makes an early impression

The rookie receiver snags a slant pass and spins out of the tackle for a 35-yard gain down to the CHI9.

Mike Evans’ sixth touchdown of the season and fifth straight game with a touchdown

This is becoming like clockwork. Tom Brady finds Evans for the sixth time this year in the end zone. The Bucs led 10-0 after this play.

Cordarrelle Patterson blows by Jordan Whitehead on the wheel route

Not good. Patterson moves the Bears inside the Bucs’ 10-yard line on this beautiful wheel route.

David Montgomery punches it in for his —and the Bears’— first rushing touchdown of 2020

Yep. The Bears had gone the entire year without scoring a rushing touchdown until they faced the Bucs. The Bucs had a 13-0 lead before this play cut it to 13-7.

Kyle Fuller takes Ke’Shawn Vaughn’s soul and forces the fumble

Shang Tsung would be proud. This is an incredible play by Fuller. Robert Quinn recovered the ball and gave Chicago possession at the TB28.

Jimmy Graham makes an incredible one-handed catch for a touchdown

What a play. Graham snags it out of the air with Jamel Dean in his face to put the Bears up, 14-13 before halftime.

Mack sacks Brady

Great recognizes great, right? Mack takes down Brady and kills the Bucs’ first drive of the second half, but it doesn’t stop Ryan Succop from hitting his third field goal of the game to put the Bucs up, 16-14.

Vita Vea mows the lawn

The big guy crashes the pocket and takes down Foles for his second sack of the year. As great as that is, it doesn’t beat his awesome celebration.

The two teams would trade field goals from that point on, with the Bears eventually pulling away, 20-19, for the win.
