Why was the Bears game rescored?
When I went to bed last night, the Bears defense was credited with 2 DTDs. This morning, they have 3 DTDs. I didn't see the game, so I have no idea what happened (not that I'm complaining). Does anyone know? Thanks!

It's gotta be wrong.

Kyle Orton threw 2 TDs, and Matt Forte ran for 1. Orton would have had 3 TDs, but Desmond Clark fumbled the ball into the end-zone, and it was recovered by Chicago.

That makes 4 offensive TDs. The other 2 TDs came from a blocked punt, and a botched punt return. 6 TDs x 7 = 42. The Bears also had 2 FGs to make up the rest of the points and get them to 48.

Thanks - the Clark fumble must be it. If nobody advanced it into the endzone, it's not a rushing or receiving TD, so I guess they "gave" it to DTD. We'll see if it holds up. With it, I have a 42 point lead going against Cutler and Welker. Hopefully it won't matter...

Are you sure it wasn't rescored from 3 defensive TDs down to 2? One of my fantasy leagues is through Yahoo, and last night they had Chigaco having 3 defensive TDs, good for 26 fantasy points. Today they adjusted it down to 2 defensive TDs, 20 fantasy points. Both defensive touchdowns came on punts- one was blocked and taken back for a TD, the other was a fumbled return, taken back for a TD. Here's a link to the box score...

I'm positive that I went to bed with 96 points and woke up with 102.

They just re-rescored it back to 96.

Re: Why was the Bears game rescored?
OK, I think I figured out what happened. If anyone cares:

Last night (24 pts): 41 PA, 439 YDS, 2 DTD (17), 4 Int, [B]DFR[/B], 2 SACK
This morning (30 pts): 41 PA, 439 YDS, [B]3 DTD[/B] (17), 4 Int, [B]DFR[/B], 2 SACK
Now (22 pts): 41 PA, 439 YDS, [B]2 DTD[/B] (17), 4 Int, 2 SACK

Initially CBS Sportsline fantasy scored Clark's fumble as a defensive fumble recovery by Chicago. Then they realized, hey, if it's a fumble recovery, then it's a DTD. Then they realized, hey, it's not a defensive fumble recovery unless the [B]other[/B] team establishes possession, and then fumbles back to the first team (who is [B]now[/B] on defense).

If you've read this far, there are some comments posted here about it:

Basically, Sportsline sucks.
