Major Wright returned an interception 45 yards for a touchdown, and the Chicago Bears beat the St. Louis Rams 23-6 on Sunday.
The defense came to the rescue against the Rams (1-2), holding them to 160 yards and sacking Sam Bradford six times. That was enough on a day when Jay Cutler struggled, and the Bears (2-1) came away with the win after an ugly loss to Green Bay the previous week.
The Bears had just kicked a field goal to extend their lead to 13-6 in the fourth quarter when Wright came up with the big return. Bradford had been hit hard by Israel Idonije and Stephen Paea on the previous play when Tim Jennings deflected a slant intended for Danny Amendola.
Wright caught the ball at the 45 and ran untouched to the end zone, making it a 14-point game and finally giving the Bears some breathing room.

Bradford only completed 18 of 35 passes for 152 yards, he was sacked 6 times and threw 2 interceptions. The Rams were completely overpowered by the Chicago Bears defense. The Rams could get anything going in this one. Their running game never got going either, running back Steven...
While the St. Louis Rams week three visit to Soldier Field certainly did not earn their hostile hosts the Chicago Bears any style points, the Monsters of the Midway's dazzling defensive effort ultimately paved the way to a 23-6 victory.

It wasn’t but a week ago that I went all in and played nice with Sam Bradford, and then he comes out and drops this game on me? Really Sam, I need to continue to call you out week after week?

It is not the end of the world. The Rams lost to a potential division winner on the road. Remember, the Bears lost 10 days earlier to their division rival. They simply could not lose to the Rams, in this game, at Soldier Field. Fans should not be devastated by this loss.
At the same time, we should not ignore the reasons why they lost. I have not reviewed all of the...
For two weeks, Paul Boudreau and Brian Schottenheimer had tag-teamed to work around a hobbled offensive line, giving Sam Bradford plenty of quick-passing opportunities, a few well-timed deep balls, and a creative deployment of the run game. However, they faced a team with a legitimate combination of up-front pressure and backfield coverage in the Chicago Bears, and the combination...
