The game saw the debut of Jacksonville Jaguars first round pick quarterback Blake Bortles. In his NFL debut Bortles completed 7 of his 11 throws for 117 yards. Jacksonville will look for a featured running back as they lose Maurice Jones Drew to free agency. Denard Robinson is a rookie out of Michigan and the Jaguars are looking to convert him to a running back with Bortles the quarterback of the future for the Jaguars. Storm Johnson is a rookie out of Central Florida who is competing for time in the Jaguars backfield. Johnson was highly touted out of high school as he was a transfer from the Miami Hurricanes after his freshman season because their backfield was crowded with top prospects.

The Bears offense showed great promise in the preseason opener. The team had a total of 399 yard passing yards in their win. On the defensive end of the ball the club picked off Nick Foles twice and backup Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley once. There is an intense completion for the backup job to Jay Cutler. Both Jimmy Clausen and Jordan Palmer put up some impressive numbers last week. Clausen had the better line with two touchdown passes and 150 yards passing completing 7 of 13 throws.
