Just about everything went the Bears way down the stretch Sunday against the Rams. With a 37-13 lead in the fourth quarter, the defense sealed the win with a late interception.

With the Rams marching down the field, the Nick Foles threw his first interception of the game to one of the most unlikely players. Outside linebacker Willie Young grabbed his first in his six year career.


After finally being forced out of bounds, the celebration was on. Young’s Bears teammates piled on him as he gave his fishing cast dance, normally reserved for sacks. Even the referee had to compliment Young on his big play.

Unlike the fumble earlier in the game and the turn over on downs the defense forced, the Bears were unable to cash in on Young’s interception. Ka’Deem Carey would fumble the ball back to St. Louis.
