SHARE Video: Obama touts Bears, Tillman, as he, Romney weigh in on Monday Night Football

President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney talked to ESPN’s Chris Berman at halftime of the Monday night game. Obama predicts the Chicago Bears can win the Superbowl.

Obama is ready for a Bears Super Bowl. And while both men have had their share of fumbles with political football in this election, he knows who the real commander in chief is when it comes to getting the ball on the ground:

Best defense in the league right now, Obama said at halftime during the New Orleans Saints win over the Philadelphia Eagles. You saw (Sunday’s) game. (Charles) Tillman may be defensive player of the year the way he’s playing.

Tillman forced four fumbles Sunday in the Bears 51-20 dismantling of the Tennessee Titans and has already been defensive player of the month once this season.
