CLEVELAND (670 The Score) -- Throughout much of the NFL’s Super Bowl era, the Bears have struggled to build a prolific offense. But their futility Sunday afternoon at FirstEnergy Stadium was nearly historic.
The Bears managed just 47 net yards of offense in their 26-6 loss to the Browns, the franchise’s second-lowest mark since the AFL merger in 1966. They averaged 1.1 yards per offensive play, the second-fewest by any team this century, as veteran tight end Jimmy Graham retweeted after the game. In his first NFL start, rookie quarterback Justin Fields was sacked nine times and ended up with just one net passing yard.
