They blitzed on nearly 23 percent of Tony Romo's dropbacks, mostly in the first half. It was...

There was bright sunshine at Soldier Field on Sunday, as much as we've seen at any game this year.
It was considerably darker in the bowels of the stadium in the back room where injured players are laid on tables and poked and prodded, tested, X-rayed...

I’ve never seen the Bears play a first quarter like that.

Perhaps the reason Matt Forte is so sensitive to sharing the meeting room, shower area and backfield with Michael Bush is he knows Bush can be more than just his caddie.
Bush is a fine fit as the Bears' No. 2 running back in part because he is the...

PALM BEACH, Fla. — Sunshine has not been difficult to find at the oceanfront site of the NFL meetings, but Lovie Smith brought more of it Wednesday in a breakfast with the media.
The Bears coach was particularly optimistic about the addition of...

The NFL’s competition committee had an idea that the Bears should like but don’t.
