Bears Stop Rams, Chiefs and Dolphins Win Thrillers, Rodgers Sets Record

Jonathan Grant | December 10th, 2018

The Chicago Bears have always been known for their vaunted defense. No one has forgotten about the ‘85 Bears team that just about everyone, and that tradition has been reignited in 2018 now. The Bears, now 9-4, welcomed the previously 11-1 Los Angeles Rams, one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl, to town on Sunday night and they showcased exactly what they can do against one of the top offenses in the league. Jared Goff was rendered ineffective in a 15-6 loss in which he threw four interceptions and missed over his attempts. It was an off night, but it was one that Chicago put on them. The Bears also sacked him three times, and perhaps most impressively, they kept him and the Rams scoreless for the entirety of the second half. The loss means the Rams couldn’t clinch a playoff bye in the first round, and it also means they have dropped into a tie against with New Orleans for the overall first seed. The good news is that they shouldn’t have to play in cold weather again, unless they start to slump that is.

Chicago Bears

The young legend of Pat Mahomes continues to grow, and on Sunday he showed just why he is well on his way to superstardom by leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a 27-24 win over the Baltimore Ravens. In a rare game in which they weren’t allowed to run rampant, the Chiefs were forced to fight for everything they got. And they were down seven with less than five minutes left. Enter stage left Mahomes. The QB led a drive down the field that tied the game and took it into overtime. His team kicked a field goal just over halfway through the ten minute OT and then hung on to win and improve to 11-2.

The dreaded Miami game is a source of wonder in the NFL for the New England Patriots. Just how in the world do they consistently lose to the Dolphins down there is a major mystery. Unfortunately for the Pats, it continued on Sunday, losing in the most cruel and bizarre way you could have imagined. After a field goal that put the Pats up 33-28, Miami had no choose but to resort to desperate measures. From their 31 yard line, Ryan Tannehill threw toward midfield. It was completed, but the fun started when they lateraled twice. It finally ended up in Kenyan Drake’s hands at the 48 yard line and he would run it in, past Gronk at one point, to give them a 34-33 win over their division foes once again. Curse.

And in Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers made history by completing the most passes without an interception in NFL history against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Rodgers is now at 368, after passing Tom Brady, without an INT after his Packers won comfortably over the Falcons 34-20.
