LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- All week the Chicago Bears have been harping on missed defensive opportunities and third-down conversions. Here are two more glaring stats from the loss to the Falcons:

After not sacking or hitting Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, the Bears know they have to get to Cincinnati's Carson Palmer.
Sacks -- 0
QB Hits -- 0
"We need to get to the quarterback more to help out the back end," defensive tackle Anthony Adams said. "The back end, they played their butts off, and it's up to us to not allow the quarterback to have a great window to throw through. We just have to do a better job at that."
Adams did not hide the fact he was slowed last week by a toe injury, which led to Marcus Harrison starting at nose tackle.
"Last week I could barely walk. I'm good now," Adams said.
