SCORING TB 10:19-2Q Igwebuike FG45 CHI 6:15-2Q Sanders 1 run (Butler kick) CHI 2:27-2Q Anderson 1 run (Butler kick) CHI 13:38-3Q McKinnon 20 pass from Tomczak (Butler kick) CHI 8:26-3Q Moorehead 2 pass from Tomczak (Butler kick) TB 6:00-3Q Hill 21 pass from Testaverde (Igwebuike kick)
The Bucs controlled the clock for over 36 minutes and outgained the Bears, but still lost their 11th sraight game to the Soldier Field denizens. "It's getting more depressing" said WR Bruce Hill after the Bucs fell to 2-8. "You want to smile a little bit once in a while on a Sunday - it's getting tough to stay upbeat."    The Bears scored four unanswered TDs to put this one beyind doubt in a game dedicated to Mike Ditka who had suffered a mild heart attack four days earlier and hence missed the game.
