On a cold, blustery day, the New York Jets’ offense failed to move the ball in an interconference road loss to the Chicago Bears.

Running back Tarik Cohen put up 111 yards of offense, while the defense allowed just 207 yards in a 24-10 win over the New York Jets at Soldier Field.

The Bears likewise struggled to put points on the board in the early going, as their first possession concluded with a missed 40-yard field goal from Cody Parkey.

Their next drive, however, was quick and lucrative, as a 70-yard Tarik Cohen pass from Mitchell Trubisky accounted for their lone scoring of the half, creating a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.


Missing several starters on offense, primarily at receiver, the Jets’ unit struggled to move the ball, mustering only a Jason Myers in the second quarter, going 51 yards in 14 plays, with Sam Darnold converting a fourth down via a quarterback sneak.

Following the Jets’ field goal, the teams picked up a combined five first downs on the next seven drives. The Bears would finally put an end to the offensive doldrums with a nine-play, 55-yard drive that more or less sealed the deal with a four-yard Trubisky touchdown pass to Anthony Miller that made it 14-3 in the third quarter.

The Jets’ offense continued to struggles despite Chicago’s breakthrough, even taking a sack from Bryce Callahan. Entering the fourth quarter, the Jets had a mere four first downs. Brandon Copeland had earlier picked one up for the Jets in the first half.

After the Bears added another field, Parkey connecting from 32 yards out, the Jets generated some hope in the form of a late scoring drive, going 75 yards in eight plays. The drive would conclude with the Jets’ only touchdown of the day, with Sam Darnold finding Chris Herndon from 16 yards away.

The Bears, however, snuffed out hope on the next possession, taking up four minutes on an eight-play, 79-yard drive, concluding with Jeremy Howard’s two-yard plunge, reestablishing a two-possession lead.

The Jets return to action next Sunday, taking on the Miami Dolphins on the road (1:00 p.m. ET, CBS).
