As the Lions appear to be tumbling, the Bears are improving every single week, the defense in particular. The Bears only needed 216 yards to come out victorious, because six forced turnovers made scoring opportunities plentiful. It was typical Chicago football, and the players looked the most comfortable they have been all season. Fun Fact: The NFC North now has three teams with at least six wins.—Tony Markovich
