The Jets got the ball to open the game. Mike White led the Jets on a crisp 75 yard opening drive culminating in a White to Garrett Wilson touchdown pass. It was the first touchdown the Jets have scored on an opening drive this season.

The 2nd quarter opened with the Bears completing a short touchdown pass to take a 10 - 7 lead as Trevor Siemian picked apart the Jets defense early on.
The Jets came right back with a drive down inside the Bears 20 yard line highlighted by a big 42 yard catch and run pass to Elijah Moore, but a fumbled snap on a Jets field goal attempt was recovered by the Bears, giving them the ball at their 18 yard line.
After the Bears went three and out, Mike White hit Garrett Wilson on a 54 yard touchdown pass as the Jets regained the lead at 14 - 10.
After the Bears went three and out, the Jets went on a final drive to get within field goal range, and Greg Zuerlein kicked a 57 yard field goal to close out the 1st half scoring.
The Jets go into the locker room with a seven point lead over the Bears at 17 - 10.
Enjoy the second half everyone.
