Some mistakes were made by the Bears that might not have caught the regular fans eye because the Bears were playing so well.
In tight games, the Bears have been able to create those key turnovers.
They sometimes can’t come up with those easy plays though.
In Sunday’s game, nickelback D.J. Moore dropped a sure interception (pictured above) and safety Chris Conte dropped about two balls that looked to be easy picks.
Those mistakes didn’t matter because the Bears were already up in the game by so much, but in closer games those young players need to bring those in.
Moore is on pace to reel in more interceptions than last season, with three already in nine weeks, but again he needs to make sure he makes those big plays.
Special teams star Corey Graham forced a fumble two weeks ago against Philadelphia on a punt return by DeSean Jackson.
This past week he came up with an interception in the fourth quarter against Detroit.
It was perhaps the best interception of the game.
For Graham, it was first interception since 2008, which was the year he was a starter for the entire season.
Looking for help
In other news, the Bears are looking to fill the final roster spot available with an offensive lineman. They brought free-agent guard Mansfield Wrotto to Halas Hall today for a workout.
Wrotto, a six-year veteran has appeared in 27 games making 12 starts. He made seven starts for the Buffalo Bills a season ago and was part of their final cuts.
Wrotto could be signed as soon as tomorrow if the Bears like his body of work or they could look somewhere else.
They could grab another free agent lineman or promote a lineman from their practice squad.
