CHICAGO — Lovie Smith got to see some old friends, and he enjoyed Tampa Bay’s strong start in the first half. The rest of the day was disappointing for the coach and the Buccaneers.
Josh McCown threw two interceptions and lost a fumble, and Tampa Bay lost 21-13 to the Bears in Smith’s return to Chicago.
“Won a lot of games here at Soldier Field,” Smith said. “Lot of great memories, but this is a bad memory right now.”
