Bears tight end Zach Miller posted a video of himself walking without crutches Sunday, a step in his recovery from a dislocated kneecap.
MORRISSEY: John Fox's conservatism is bringing down Mitch Trubisky
The Steelers reached the Patriots 7-yard line before Duron Harmon’s interception sealed the win for New England.
Those that didn’t nod off during the Bears’ 20-10 loss to the Lions on Saturday would have heard John Fox explain two coaching decisions the same way.
Running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon combined for 37 touches and 242 yards from scrimmage for the Vikings (11-3).
Rodgers, making his first appearance since Oct. 15, threw for 290 yards with three TDs but was picked three times as the Packers’ playoff hopes dimmed
Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky seems more comfortable rolling right than left, but credit the Lions’ Ziggy Ansah for hurrying his motion.
The Browns are the ultimate in NFL hopelessness — mired in dysfunction and bad management, spinning their wheels on multiple levels.
The 4-10 Bears have four consecutive seasons with double-digit losses. That’s not Browns-esque, but Rome wasn’t torn down in a day.
The Lions had allowed 100-plus rushing yards in each of the past six games, and Dowell Loggains’ Bears couldn’t muster half that Saturday.
Rather than shutting it down in a lost season, Pernell McPhee insisted on playing through a shoulder injury and started Saturday. He didn’t last long.
Three quick notes from the Bears’ 20-10 loss to the Lions in Detroit:
But Stafford hit the jackpot when Jones got inside position on Jackson and won the jump ball for the 58-yard gain to the Bears 12-yard line.
If this season truly was about the development of Trubisky, he would have had the type of performance he did Saturday against the Lions weeks ago.
It wasn’t until the fourth quarter that the rookie was allowed to throw the ball around the field. Why not earlier and why not deeper?
The Bears finished with a season-high 13 flags for 97 yards — a field-position figure that, for practical purposes, should have been twice as bad.
