CHICAGO-The Bears ran their preseason record to 2-0 Thursday night by rallying past the Jaguars 20-19 at Soldier Field.

They trailed 19-7 entering the fourth quarter. That’s when Jordan Palmer led the Bears on a pair of touchdown drives. The first resulted in a one-yard run by Ka’Deem Carey. The second came on a five-yard run by Senorise Perry.

The Bears first score of the night came early in the second quarter. Jay Cutler found Brandon Marshall in the back of the endzone for a four-yard touchdown. Cutler finished the night 7 of 9 for 75 yards. Jimmy Clausen was the second quarterback of the night for the Bears. He completed 11 of 15 passes for 94 yards, but he was intercepted once on a pass that was deflected. He also fumbled once.

Defensively, Jared Allen had one tackle for loss in his debut. Shea McClellin made four solo tackles including one for negative yardage. The Bears next preseason game will be Friday, August 22 at Seattle.
