LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Lance Briggs understands just how thin a line the Chicago Bears are toeing at the moment.
They could easily be winless rather than unbeaten, and they just might be regrouping from a loss had Jay Cutler not delivered a perfect pass to Martellus Bennett in the closing seconds to beat the Minnesota Vikings 31-30 on Sunday.
That came on the heels of a season-opening win over Cincinnati in which they rallied from 11 down in the second half.
Briggs says the line between 2-0 and 0-2 is "minute, very, very small" for the Bears.
He says the Bears are "starting to create an identity," and resilient is looking like a good description.
