The Chicago Bears dropped their season opener, losing 34-14 to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football. But it wasn’t the offense that was the biggest disappointment. That honor belonged to Chicago’s once-vaunted defense.

The Bears gave up 34 points — the highest to the Rams in the last four meetings — and allowed Matthew Stafford and LA’s high-powered attack to destroy them on national television. Missed tackles, blown coverages and big stars with less-than-impressive outings proved to be a recipe for disaster in the season opener.

While the defense was bad, there were some players who performed better than others. Here’s how the Bears defense graded, from best to worst, in their Week 1 loss from PFF:
