With veteran safety and team leader Antrel Rolle on the sideline this week with an ankle injury, the Bears were forced to start two rookies at the safety position.
That thought alone is enough to make Bears fans tremble with fear. But the Bears survived — and even thrived — with the two youngsters as the last line of defense.
Adrian Amos has been a starter all season, but Harold Jones-Quartey got the nod opposite him.
Although it’s difficult to grade their performances without knowing what coverages and responsibilities they were in, it was good to see Jones-Quartey active, as he finished with four tackles.
Still, the Bears will need Rolle back on the field as quickly as possible for his leadership and performance.
