  • Jay be nimble, Jay be quick to avoid getting sacked Nov 22, 2014 6:39 PM
    Quarterback Jay Cutler is all in favor of the decision to occasionally move him outside the pocket, as the Bears did successfully in Week 11 against the Vikings. Cutler was unsacked for the first time all season, despite throwing 43 passes.

  • McCown seems back on course Nov 20, 2014 7:57 PM
    Former Bears super-sub quarterback Josh McCown experienced a whole different job description when Lovie Smith brought him in as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting quarterback.

  • Rozner: Bears’ treatment of Lynch makes more sense now Nov 18, 2014 8:03 PM

  • LeGere: Trestman’s future depends on Bears players Nov 18, 2014 11:55 PM
    The Bears didn't go overboard celebrating their latest victory and they shouldn't, since they merely played the way they're supposed to every week.

  • LeGere: Bears look to build some momentum Nov 17, 2014 8:34 PM
    The Bears may not have earned any style points for their victory over the Vikings Sunday.

  • Rozner: Bears’ Long keeps short-term view of success Nov 17, 2014 8:29 PM

  • Bears’ Trestman, Marshall approaching Sunday as just another game Nov 17, 2014 8:35 PM

  • 49ers’ D leads 16-10 win over Giants with 5 INTs Nov 16, 2014 3:42 PM
    San Francisco rookie linebacker Chris Borland intercepted a fourth-down pass by Eli Manning at the 49ers 2 with 4:43 to play capping a goal-line stand in a 16-10 victory Sunday that sent the error-plagued New York Giants to their fifth straight loss. Borland had two of the 49ers’ five interceptions as the Niners (6-4) survived a game in which a big advantage in time of possession and takeaways did not translate into a blowout on the scoreboard. Colin Kaepernick threw a 48-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree and Phil Dawson kicked three first-half field goals as the 49ers won their second straight on the road. Manning threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to tight end Larry Donnell on New York’s opening possession, but the reeling Giants (3-7) only got a field goal from Josh Brown the rest of the way.

  • Watt dominates as Texans down Browns 23-7 Nov 16, 2014 3:39 PM
    J.J. Watt caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Mallett, dominated on defense and the Houston Texans climbed back to .500 with a 23-7 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Watt was all over the field. Along with his TD, he recorded a strip sack, made five tackles — three for a loss — recovered a fumble and hurried Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer into several bad throws. Watt provided more proof he’s the NFL’s best defensive player. Mallett threw a pair of TD passes and finished with 211 yards in his first career start. The four-year veteran was promoted during the bye week after the Texans (5-5) benched Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Texans played without star running back Arian Foster because of a groin injury, but rookie Alfred Blue stepped in and gained 156 yards on a franchise-record 36 carries. The Browns (6-4) won’t spend a second straight week atop the AFC North. They lost for just the second time in seven games, and Watt is the main reason why.
