Aside from a Kyle Fuller pick-six that came after Bengals receiver John Ross slipped, there wasn't much to write about in this one from the Bears. The first-team offense looked out of sorts as Mitch Trubisky -- 2-for-4 for four yards -- was sacked once in two series of work. Aside from Fuller's highlight, the defense struggled to make much noise as the Bengals moved up and down the field with relative ease early in the game. New coach Matt Nagy has plenty of things to show his players on tape as they head into next week's preseason contest in Denver.
