The Chicago Bears played in front of the home crowd for the first time this season against the Cincinnati Bengals and gave the fans quite the experience.

After a hot start thanks to quarterback Andy Dalton finding receiver Allen Robinson for the 7-0 lead, both teams couldn’t seem to score. Things got interesting in the second quarter, however, when Dalton injured his knee on a scramble and gave way to Justin Fields.

The rookie quarterback showed some flashes, but could not get the Bears into scoring position. The defense, however, came to life and broke the game open. A pick six from Roquan Smith gave the Bears a 14-3 lead. Two more interceptions on consecutive passes led to a pair of field goals, extending the lead to 20-3.

An easy win seemed inevitable until the Bengals came back to score 14 unanswered points. But Fields converted a critical third down to preserve the 20-17 victory.

There were quite a few highlights and notable standout players from this one, but a few guys struggled in key situations. Here are the studs and duds from the Bears’ Week 2 win.
