Another ugly game. I could go on about how poor the defense has played against the run, or how terrible the offense played. What more can I say that I haven't said in past weeks though? At one time this team was 2-4, now they have lost five straight. I saw a team that was overwhelmed by the Bears defense. Chicago has been very tough against the run, but has been giving up big gains on pass defense. Today, the Rams made the 2008 Bears look like the 1985 Bears defense.
It was another game without Steven Jackson. It didn't help matters when Marc Bulger sustained a concussion on the fifth play of the game. Backup Trent Green took over for Bulger and did his worst going 16/30 for 219 yards and 4 interceptions. Chicago dominated the game with their defense creating turnovers and recording 5 sacks. They threw off the quaterback's timing making him throw passes well behind receivers.
The Bears limited St. Louis to 14 yards rushing on 19 carries. Antonio Pittman had 9 of those carries for 8 yards. Only 3 of those carries went for positive yardage; including gains of 3, 8, and 11 yards.
For the fourth time this year, the Rams failed to score a touchdown. The lone Rams score today, a Josh Brown 43-yard field goal in the in the 2nd quarter when the Rams were trailing 21-0. Josh Brown had previously missed a 40-yard field goal earlier in the period.
Matt Forte had a solid game on the ground thumping the Rams defense for 132 yards and 2 touchdowns on 20 carries. The woes will just continue for the Rams. How are they going to stop the Dolphins next week when they run their infamous "Wildcat Formation"? The Dolphins could have close to 200 rushing if not more, before the game is over.
