One that got away for the Buccaneers as Cairo Santos’ late fieldgoal gave the Bears victory on a Thursday night game at an empty Soldier Field.  Tampa Bay jumped out to an early 13-0 lead and had enough chances to put the game away but two Bear scores in the final two minutes of the first half got the home side back in the encounter.
