CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears failed to completely capitalize on their red zone possessions in the second quarter, but still lead the Atlanta Falcons 16-3 at halftime.

On two separate occasions, the Bears had the ball inside the Atlanta 20-yard line, but were forced to settle for a pair of Robbie Gould field goals (23, 26). The second trip deep in Falcons' territory was especially frustrating, as Jay Cutler missed a wide open Kellen Davis on the far side of the field on third and 1 from the Falcons' 8-yard line.

However, that proved to be one of Cutler's few miscues in the opening half. The quarterback torched Atlanta's defense for 222 passing yards, one touchdown and a QB rating of 125.5, this despite the ground game being held to just 22 first-half rushing yards. Cutler was sacked three times.

Matt Forte leads the club with five receptions, while Roy Williams caught three balls in his first 30 minutes wearing a Bears uniform in the regular season.

On the injury front, Bears starting right guard Lance Louis suffered an ankle injury and is questionable to return. Chris Spencer, the team's No. 2 center on the official depth chart, took over for Louis at guard while Roberto Garza remained at center.
