The 2002 season was the Chicago Bears' 83rd in the National Football League and their fourth under head coach Dick Jauron.

The team had hopes of returning to the playoffs after an unexpected 13–3 season the previous year, However, the team failed to improve on that record and finished with a 4–12 record and missed the postseason for the second time in three years. The Bears had problems on both sides of the ball, finishing 27th in the league in points scored and 23rd in points allowed.[1] The Bears began the season 2–0, but things quickly fell apart as the team fell into an eight-game losing streak, including a loss at home to the New England Patriots where, despite having a 27–6 lead at some point, the Patriots came back and won the game late in the fourth quarter. After this, the Bears never recovered, finishing 4–12 and in third place in their division, the newly aligned NFC North.

Because Soldier Field was being rebuilt, the Bears were forced to play all of their home games Downstate in Champaign, at Memorial Stadium on the campus of the University of Illinois.[2] The Bears never seemed to get used to their new home field, and injuries piled up as the season went on for both offense and defense. Starting QB Jim Miller was injured throughout the year, leaving the team no choice but to use backup Chris Chandler and rookie third-string QB Henry Burris for both spot relief and as starters. 2001 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Anthony Thomas suffered a broken right index finger in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.[3] These injuries and the league's 23rd worst turnover differential contributed to the team's franchise record-tying eight-game losing streak and their poor record.[4]

Training camp

2002 marked the first Bears Training Camp at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois, after practicing at University of Wisconsin–Platteville from 1984 to 2001. Other candidates in the selection process included universities like Eastern Illinois in Charleston, Illinois State in Normal, Millikin in Decatur, Northern Illinois in DeKalb, Southern Illinois Carbondale and Edwardsville, and Urbana–Champaign; smaller schools like Knox College in Galesburg, Monmouth College in Monmouth, and Rockford College in Rockford; and the Chanute Air Force Base near Rantoul, where the Illinois Fighting Illini held their offseason camps.[6]

The list was eventually narrowed to Eastern Illinois, Millikin, Northern Illinois, and Olivet Nazarene. On July 17, 2001, the Bears announced Olivet Nazarene as the new Training Camp site on a two-year deal.[7]

The Bears started off the year in their temporary home of Memorial Stadium against the divisional opponent Minnesota Vikings. The Bears got off to a slow start, outgained 272–118 yards and outscored 20–10 by the Vikings at the half. Heat exhaustion took its toll on the secondary, with temperatures creeping as high as 118 degrees.[9] At one point during the second quarter, none of the defensive backs on the field had been starters on the team during the previous season.[9] Veteran Daunte Culpepper closed out the half with a 33-yard touchdown strike to Randy Moss in the final minute.

The Bears regrouped after the half, and their defense in particular rose to the occasion. The defense held the Vikings to 92 total yards and one field goal in the second half. Wearing down the Minnesota defense, the Bears' rushing attack accumulated 71 yards in the second half alone.[9] With 28 seconds left in the game, Jim Miller threw a 9-yard go-ahead touchdown pass to David Terrell.

After the game, Miller downplayed the inconsistency between the Bears' play in the first and second halves, stating, "I think that's just our style. We run the same stuff, wear you out."[9] Safety Mike Brown, who intercepted Culpepper for 16 yards, agreed with Miller during a postgame interview, stating, "The thing about this team is that we fight for 60 minutes no matter what the score is."[9]

With the win, the Bears started off their season 1–0.

Week 2: at Atlanta Falcons

For the second week in a row, the Bears played a close game that was decided in the game's final minute, and, once again, they came out on the winning end. The Atlanta Falcons were a team on the upswing. Falcons QB Michael Vick had just begun his first full season as a starter, playing his first home game of the year at the Georgia Dome after a 37–34 loss at Lambeau Field.[11]

Vick finished the day with one touchdown and no interceptions, but Bears Pro Bowl LB Brian Urlacher pressured him all game, sacking Vick twice and forcing a fumble. Both offenses struggled to move down the field, and with four minutes left in the game, a Bears challenge reversed a big play by Falcons receiver Willie Jackson. Following a 3 and out by the Bears, the Falcons had an opportunity to win the game with 56 seconds left, but kicker Jay Feely missed a 45-yard field goal,[11] leaving the Bears undefeated with a record of 2–0.

Though the Bears had narrowly won their first two games, the team remained optimistic. Dez White, who dropped a touchdown pass during the game, stated, "Neither game has been pretty, but we'll take it."[11] ESPN analyst Eric Allen echoed QB Jim Miller's comments from the previous week, stating, "It's their style of play – a hard-nosed style that suits the black-and-blue division..."[11]

With the win, the Bears improved to 2–0 on the season.

Week 3: New Orleans Saints

Saints 0 14 7 8 29

Hoping to continue their unbeaten streak at home, the Bears faced off against fellow undefeated team New Orleans in week 3. Against a prolific offense led by quarterback Aaron Brooks, the Bears surged to a 20–0 lead early in the second quarter after turnovers and missed opportunities by the Saints. Thanks to a pair of fumble recoveries by rookie Bryan Knight and solid offensive play, the Bears scored on four straight first-half possessions.[13]

Unfortunately for the Bears, the Saints regained momentum exiting the half after a pair of quick scores, facilitated by returner Leon Johnson losing a kickoff in the sun on the kickoff immediately following a 16-yard touchdown pass from Brooks. The football bounced directly off of his helmet and was subsequently recovered by the Saints, who went on to score less than a minute later.[2] After the game, New Orleans coach Jim Haslett echoed his team's confidence, "We came in at halftime down 20–14 and the guys knew we were going to win the game."[13]

Down 8 in the final minute, the Bears drove all the way to the Saints 18-yard line when QB Jim Miller threw an interception to cornerback Sammy Knight with two seconds remaining to seal victory for the Saints. Chicago had won its previous 12 games decided by a touchdown or less, and Miller hoped for better play down the stretch, stating, "It shouldn't have come down to the way it did."[13]

With the loss, the Bears fell to 2–1 on the season.

The Bears arrived at Ford Field for their week 6 matchup against the Detroit Lions with a significant change to its starting lineup. Backup QB Chris Chandler started for the Bears in place of injured starter Jim Miller. Chris Chandler extended a post-merger NFL record by starting at QB for his seventh team.[15]

Neither team scored in the first quarter, but the Lions led 14–3 with a minute remaining in the half on a pair of TDs by seasoned RB James Stewart. The Bears battled back, scoring 17 straight points to take the lead early in the third quarter. Both teams struggled to put up points late in the game, but rookie Lions QB Joey Harrington drove the Lions down the field late in both the third and fourth quarters.[15]

With 2:21 left in the game, Detroit started a drive from their own 22-yard line. The Lions received favorable calls from the officials twice during the drive, but a penalty against the Lions helped them the most. With five seconds left in the game, Joey Harrington was sacked by Bears DB Larry Whigham, seemingly ending the game. However, the referees had called a false start on the Lions, negating the previous play.[16] Lions kicker Jason Hanson then hit a 24-yard field goal with two seconds remaining to send the game into overtime.

The Lions won the overtime coin toss and elected to receive.[16] Chicago's kickoff went out of bounds, giving the Lions favorable field position and possession. Detroit ran the ball seven straight times to set up the game-winning 48-yard field goal from the Chicago 30 by Hanson.[15]

Though it was only week 6, the Bears had now lost more times in 2002 than in all of 2001 during the regular season. Bears linebacker Rosevelt Colvin said after the game, "These are the games we were winning last year. Now, we're losing them." [15]

With the loss, the Bears fell to 2–4 on the season.

Week 8 against the Minnesota Vikings at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome proved to be the lowpoint of the Bears' season. Chris Chandler started in place of Jim Miller for the second straight week but was ineffective against the Minnesota pass defense, then ranked 31st in the league. He was intercepted once and sacked six times.[18]

Minnesota held onto the ball for 41 minutes, more than doubling the Bears' time of possession. The Bears had lost Ted Washington, R. W. McQuarters and Warrick Holdman to injuries, and the depleted defensive unit gave up 148 rushing yards and 216 passing yards. Running back Anthony Thomas could only gain 18 yards on the ground and was tackled in the Bears end zone for a safety midway through the third quarter.

The Bears could not score until the fourth quarter, and head coach Dick Jauron offered no excuses. During a postgame interview, he said, "That certainly wasn't pretty in any area. It's frustrating, no doubt. There's nobody who's happy right now."[18]

With the loss, the Bears fell to 2–5 on the season.

Week 9: Philadelphia Eagles

Eagles 0 7 6 6 19

The Bears returned home to face the team that had eliminated them from the playoffs the previous year, the Philadelphia Eagles. Both teams had gone in opposite directions since then. The Bears, losers of five straight games, were all but relegated to battling for draft position, and the Eagles eventually earned the #1 seed in the NFC playoffs.[20]

The Bears frustrated the Eagles defense in the first half. Though neither team scored in the first quarter, Paul Edinger kicked a field goal midway through the second quarter to give the Bears the lead. Eagles QB Donovan McNabb replied with a 5-yard touchdown run with 4:42 remaining in the half, but returning QB Jim Miller led scoring drives twice more before halftime, capped off with a 6-yard Anthony Thomas run and a 53-yard Edinger field goal, respectively.[21]

Penalties haunted the Bears in the second half. During the game, officials called 12 penalties on Chicago for 121 yards, 9 on defense. The offense could only muster 53 yards after halftime, 32 of which came on the final drive, where Miller overthrew Marcus Robinson on a 4th down end zone pass. David Akers kicked four field goals for the Eagles in the second half, overcoming the Eagles' first half deficit and earning the win.[21]

R. W. McQuarters was especially critical of the officiating. Following the game, he said to reporters, "There were questionable calls all day long. It's pathetic." [21]

With the loss, the Bears fell to 2–6 on the season.

Bears 0 6 7 3 16
Rams 7 7 0 7 21

After hosting the Super Bowl XXXVI champions in Week 10, the Bears faced that game's runner-up St. Louis Rams on the road. Both teams had suffered losing streaks during the season, but while the Bears were still in the midst of theirs, the Rams had bounced back and won four consecutive games, mostly due to the play of breakout backup QB Marc Bulger, who was taking over for injured defending NFL MVP Kurt Warner.

St. Louis scored first on a 1-yard touchdown run by Ernie Conwell early in the first quarter. Paul Edinger kicked field goals of 37 and 48 yards in the second quarter. Kurt Warner returned for the Rams temporarily in the second quarter after Bulger was removed from the game with a finger injury. Once X-Rays came back negative, Bulger returned to the game, throwing a 22-yard touchdown pass to Lamar Gordon, who was playing in place of the injured Marshall Faulk.[23] St. Louis took a 14–6 lead to the half.

In the second half, the Bears kept the game close with a touchdown run by Anthony Thomas and a Paul Edinger field goal, but the Rams' passing game was too much for the Bears' decimated defense to handle, even with the little thread their running game posed. The Rams' defense sacked Bears QB Chris Chandler seven times, and, though they never turned the ball over, they were outgained 327–117 in total yardage.[23]

"We just have to make plays", Chicago wide receiver Marcus Robinson said. "Bottom line, we didn't do that tonight and that's why we lost."

With the loss, Chicago dropped to 2–8 on the season and tied a franchise-worst 8-game losing streak.[24]

Before their Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions at home, Week 11 marked a milestone of futility for the Bears. After losing eight straight games, the Bears had now tied their all-time worst losing streak.[24] In their first game against the Lions during Week 7, the Lions came back under QB Joey Harrington to force overtime and win the game.

Chris Chandler started the game in place of injured QB Jim Miller again, throwing a 3-yard touchdown pass to Marcus Robinson in the second quarter. Detroit entered halftime trailing, but they took the lead after the half once again, scoring 17 unanswered points with a 22-yard field goal from Jason Hanson, a 1-yard touchdown pass from Joey Harrington to Germane Crowell, and a 23-yard touchdown run from James Stewart.[24]

The Lions did not score again. Jim Miller came off the bench in the second half and threw a 22-yard touchdown strike to Dez White to cut the lead to 17-14 with 2:39 to go. After forcing a punt, the Bears faced a 4th and 20 at the 45 yard line with 1:01 to go. In probably the best play of the game (though forgotten due to the upcoming coin toss blunder by the Lions), Miller dropped back and fell down, but got back up (since he was never touched, the play was still live) and completed a 33 yard pass to Dez White. This set up a 22-yard field goal by Paul Edinger with no time left in regulation to force overtime.

The Lions won the coin toss in overtime, but they elected to kick the ball to the Bears because of the 17 mph winds on the field, hoping they would have the opportunity to use the advantage they gained by picking their end zone. Unfortunately for the Lions, the Bears drove down the field. With the Bears driving at the Lions' 35 yard line, the Lions made another strategic blunder. The Bears faced a 3rd and 8 and failed to convert, but the Lions accepted a holding penalty on the play, giving the Bears 3rd-and-18 rather than have Paul Edinger attempt a 52 yard field goal against the wind. Miller completed a pass to Marty Booker for 15 yards, then on 4th and 3 converted the first down on a pass to Dez White, setting up a 40-yard field goal by Edinger which gave the Bears the win.[24]

Detroit Coach Marty Mornhinweg defended his decision after the game, saying to reporters, "Knowing the outcome of this game, I wouldn't do it again, but in a similar situation, I would." Paul Edinger vocalized his belief that Detroit had made a mistake, saying, "You always want to take the ball. It's sudden death."[24]

With the win, Chicago improved to 3–8 on the season and snapped their losing streak.

Bears 7 0 0 7 14
Panthers 0 21 0 3 24

After their win in Week 15, the Bears traveled to Charlotte to face the Carolina Panthers, who were also mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Though the Bears had snapped their overall losing streak, they had still lost 6 straight on the road and hoped to snap that streak as well. The Panthers, quarterbacked by Rodney Peete, were trying to give their fans a victory in the home finale.[26]

The game started very well for Chicago. QB Chris Chandler threw a season-high 76-yard pass to Dez White for a TD. He finished 7–8 on the day with one touchdown and one fumble. Unfortunately, he was knocked out of the game and the season with a concussion by Carolina's Brentson Buckner.[26]

Carolina scored all three of their touchdowns in the second quarter as well. Dee Brown ran for two touchdowns from inside the 2-yard line. Following a fumble by Chicago QB Henry Burris, Rodney Peete passed to Muhsin Muhammad for a 3-yard touchdown pass.

Neither team moved the ball well in the second half, only able to muster a field goal apiece. Chicago finished the day with four turnovers and only 106 yards of offense after the 76-yard touchdown pass by Chandler 47 seconds into the game. Bears offensive coordinator John Shoop felt that they lost their momentum when Chandler went down, saying, "I think when Chris got injured, we started reeling a little bit and we just couldn't recover as a team." [26]

With the loss, the Bears fell to 4–11 on the season.

Week 17: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Bears returned to Memorial Stadium one last time to host the eventual Super Bowl XXXVII champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday Night Football. The Buccaneers were notoriously poor in the cold weather, having lost 21 straight games when the temperature dropped below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. With the gametime temperature at 38 °F and Bucs QB Brad Johnson out with a back contusion, many fans thought the Bears, even with their 4–11 record, had a good chance of winning the game. With Green Bay's loss that night, Tampa Bay needed to win to secure a first-round bye in the playoffs. [28]

The Buccaneers offense was not prolific. Bucs backup QB Rob Johnson was sacked five times during the game by the Bears defense, but he did not turn the ball over and managed the game well enough for kicker Martin Gramatica to kick five field goals, none more than 33 yards. The Bucs established their ground game against the Bears, rushing for 161 yards with their halfback-fullback tandem, Michael Pittman and Mike Alstott.[28]

The Bears fared worse. Former third-string rookie QB Henry Burris found himself at a loss against the league's #1 defense. The Bucs intercepted him four times over the course of the game, and the Bears were shut out in their final game at Memorial Stadium.[28]

With the loss, the Bears finished the season with a record of 4–12.
