Roach blanketed Lewis on two consecutive pass plays, first turning and running with Lewis on a nine route into the end-zone for a pass deflection. Roach maintained outside leverage the entire route and nearly came away with an over the shoulder interception. Roach's excellent positioning on the play was like that of the receiver, Lewis was trailing and Roach had position to nearly make the pick.
On the next play, Roach disrupted the timing of Lewis' route by getting a solid jam off the line of scrimmage. The jam and reroute by Roach led to a throw off in timing on the route intended for L...

During the Chicago Bears' three-game winning streak, the defense has allowed just two touchdowns. But that's not even half the story of what has become one of the NFL's most dominating units. During those same three games, the defense has scored five touchdowns, just one fewer than the Chicago offense has produced in that span. Taking the ball away and then taking...

Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman has been named NFC Defensive Player of the Week.
Despite earlier reports to the contrary, GM Phil Emery says the team is not currently discussing a contract extension with head coach Lovie Smith.

Well, sort of.
Tillman and Briggs actually have two interception returns for touchdowns, and the Chicago Bears' defense has been racking up points of late at a rate that would make any high-powered offense envious...
