31-year old LB Lance Briggs continues to play at a high level for the Chicago Bears.  Briggs has played in 12 games for the Bears so far this year and he has 84 tackles, 8 tackles for a loss, 2 forced fumbles, 1 interception and 4 passes defensed.  He has now played in 136 games in his first 9 years with the Bears and he has 948 tackles, 71 tackles for a loss, 10.5 sacks, 14 forced fumbles, 7 fumble recoveries, 64 passes defensed and 13 interceptions (3 returned for TDs).  The Bears need him to keep up the good work the rest of the season, because the team is going to have to lean on the defense if they want to get back to the playoffs.

Science Has Failed Bears
