The Bears would host their first playoff game since the 2001 season against the red hot Panthers, fresh off a victory over Eli Manning and the New York Giants.

Things were bad from the beginning for the Bears, who allowed a 58 yard Jake Delhomme TD pass to Steve Smith just 55 seconds into the game. Cornerback Charles Tillman slipped on the play, and it would only signify things to come the rest of the game for the vaunted Bears defense.

The Panthers would add 2 field goals to their total before the Bears would get their first points.

The Bears offense got off to a slow start, having their first 5 possessions end in punts. Their first score came midway through the second quarter, when running back Adrian Peterson scored a touchdown on a 1 yard run. The Bears had opted to go for it on 4th down to get the score, cutting the Carolina lead to 13-7. Before the half expired, the Panthers' John Kasay kicked a 37 yard field goal with 5 seconds left in the half, extending the lead to 16-7.

The Bears offense came out at halftime firing on all cylinders, mounting an 8 play, 68 yard drive to close to within 2 points of the Panther lead. It was a balanced drive that led to the score, with the Bears running and passing 5 times each, with Rex Grossman capping the drive with a 1 yard TD pass to Desmond Clark.

The spark provided by the offense would be short lived, as midway through the 3rd quarter, Delhomme went deep to Steve Smith again, this time for a 39 yard touchdown that put the Panthers up 23-14. Chris Thompson, a reserve defensive back for the Bears, fell down on the play to let Smith slip past him.

The Bears would manage to score one more time on a drive that started with 2:07 remaining in the 3rd quarter. Grossman would complete 3 of 4 passes on the drive, and running back Thomas Jones almost scored on a 7 yard run. After a replay challenge by Carolina, however, the officials reversed the call to say that Jones had fumbled into the endzone, which would have resulted in a Carolina touchback. However, a major facemask penalty on Carolina defensive back Marlon McCree would give Chicago a first down at the Carolina 3. From there, fullback Jason McKie would rumble in for a touchdown, making the score 23-21 in favor of the Panthers.

The Panthers would extend their lead once more with a 1 yard Delhomme pass to tight end Kris Mangum. Kasay would miss the extra point try though, making the Panther lead 29-21.

When the Bears offense would start moving the ball once more, disaster struck for the Bears, as on a 3rd-and-10 play from the Carolina 37 yard line, Grossman threw an ill advised interception to Ken Lucas. It appeared that the play clock had expired before the snap, which would have resulted in a Chicago 5 yard penalty rather than an interception. The officials, however, apparently didn't see that the clock had expired, and the interception would stand, resulting in a gut wrenching loss for the Bears.
