Roach Started 15 Of 16 Games Last Season
“It’s just another chance to get out and play some defense, It’s always fun to play defense.”
After missing all but two contests last year, LB Pisa Tinoisamoa will be sidelined for the first time tonight due to a sore knee. With Pisa ruled out, this means Nick Roach will step in at his position on the strong side against Miami. Roach had a team-high 10 tackles for loss a year ago.
More News: With four tackles against the Dolphins, Brian Urlacher will pass Mike Singletary atop the team’s record for tackles.

Bears sack leader Israel Idonije, who has a total of 5.
Anyone doubt the Cover 2 defense anymore? The “bend, but don’t break” strategy is working. Which makes you ponder: As long as the offense doesn’t dismantle and beat themselves, the Bears have as good of a chance as any squad to represent the NFC come February in Dallas.
