Last week: 10 Beating the Vikings by 1 isn’t that impressive, but they did it despite losing the turnover battle, something that only happens 20.9% of the time. The NFC is tough, but the Bears have a chance to be right in the playoff hunt. They aren’t dominating the turnover battle like they were last year, as could be expected, but they have an improved offense thanks to a very impressive rookie right side of the offensive line with Kyle Long and Jordan Mills. Along with fellow newcomers Jermon Bushrod and Matt Slauson, they’ve fortified an offensive line that has allowed just 1 sack all season, despite facing Minnesota and Cincinnati, two of the better sack teams in the NFL a year ago.

Hester returns to wreaking havoc for Bears

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer Devin Hester appears to be back to his havoc-wreaking ways for the Chicago Bears.

It's been...

Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari guest star on “The League”

“The League” has done a fantastic job getting big name guest stars to come on their show the past few years and this week they had Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari.  I was surprised that Cutler looked so comfortable and performed so well on TV, especially because most of “The League” is unscripted.  The episode itself was hysterical and...

Martellus Bennett says his coach reminds him of Willy Wonka

Chicago Bears wide receiver Martellus Bennett paid his head coach, Marc Trestman, a relatively odd and interesting compliment on Tuesday, likening Trestman to Willy Wonka, specifically the Willy Wonka portrayed by Gene Wilder in the 1971 film.
