The Bears used a couple of big plays on Sunday as they beat up the St.Louis Rams 37-13 to push their 2015 season record to 4-5 on the season.
Tight end Zach Miller got the Bears on track with a wild 87-yard score and got a Bears offense that seemed smoother today than it has been all year on track.
”I did not want to get caught,” Miller said. ”I’d be getting clowned by everybody if I got caught.”
Miller caught a second touchdown pass, and Jeremy Langford also had two TDs for the Bears. The 87-yarder was the longest receiving TD by a Bears tight end since Willard Dewveall had a 91-yarder in 1960.
The Bears seem to play better on the road, as in four road games they are 3-1.
Langford played a tremendous game for the Bears. He went untouched on an 83-yard TD on a screen caught behind the line of scrimmage, and also had a 6-yard scoring run.
The backup for Matt Forte ended the day with seven catches for 109 yards and 73 yards on 20 carries.
Jay Cutler was 19-for-24, 258 yards with three touchdowns. He played his best game of the year, keeping the Bears offense going.
The Chicago defense did a good job on Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley, holding him to 45 yards on 12 carries with a long of 9 yards, and he led St. Louis with three catches for 44 yards.
The Rams were 4 for 14 on third down, as the Bears defense held them in check most of the afternoon. The Bears will be home next week to host the struggling Denver Broncos.
The Bears fans took over the Edward Jones Dome, and after the game tight end Martellus Bennett laid it down as to how he and the Bears felt about the Rams.
