Chicago Bears at Miami Dolphins

Bears comeback to win thriller in Miami

Jay Cutler produced his performance of the season, claiming 310yds and 2TD's, as he led The Bears to the victory in the fourth quarter and break Miami's hearts in a see-saw game in the Florida sun.

Miami took the lead when Dan Carpenter slotted over from 34 yards at the end of the first quarter, after Robbie Gould had missed a few minutes earlier. Gould made ammends midway through the second, when he levelled the scores with a 36 yard kick of his own. After some defensive adjustments, Chicago managed to tame The Dolphins running attack, and recieved the ball on their own 7 with 2:07 left in the half. Cutler led the Bears up the field, twice converting third and long, and capped a remarkable drive by finding Earl Bennett in the endzone give The Bears a 10-3 lead at half time.

Miami gained parity after the restart when Ronnie Brown plunged through on a three yard score. Then Cutler looked to have thrown the game away with two interceptions. The first set The Dolphins up for a field goal and the second, two plays after the restart, was taken 44yds to the house by Channing Crowder to put Miami 20-10 in front, with 18 minutes left to play. Zachary Bowman claimed an interception of his own, from which Gould chipped over his third FG of the day.

Cutler, and the rest of The Bears offence, refused to go down without a fight, and upped their game in the final quarter. A 14 play drive, taking 7 minutes off the clock culminated with Cutler finding his favourite target, TE Greg Olsen, to tie the scores. The Bears defence wasn't going to let their offensive team mates claim all the glory as they forced Miami 3 and out, before Cutler, ably assisted by Matt Forte this time, drove down the field, allowing Gould to kick the winner as time wound down.

The Bears move to 7-3, a game ahead of the Vikings at the top of The NFC North. The match up with the 3-7 Eagles next week, and will welcome back WR Johnny Knox, who has recovered from his broken ribs.

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears

Chicago's Bowman shoots down Vikes.

Zachary Bowman was the toast of Chicago after his two interceptions and two touchdowns helped Chicago beat The Vikings 30-22. A packed house at a chilly Soldier Field had plenty of action to keep them warm in this NFC North battle for top spot.

Chicago got off to a dream start, converting on the first drive of the game when Jay Cutler found Greg Olsen, returning to the team after a three game lay off, in the endzone for his 3rd TD of the year. After a brace of three and outs for each team The Vikings finally got some momentum behind the strong running of Adrian Peterson. QB Brett Favre took a sho at the endzone, only for Chicago safety Chris Harris to deflect the ball into the hands of Bowman, who outsprinted the cover to score a 101yd interception return. The Vikings narrowed the gap at the end of the 2nd quarter when Peterson scored from 7yds out to make the score 14-7 at the half.

Chicago's defence claimed their second safety of the year in the third quarter when Tommie Harris brought down Favre behind the line. As the game entered the final quarter Chicago led 16-7. They extended the lead when back up RB Chester Taylor dove over from 8yds and when Bowman returned his second pick to the house the game was secure as Chicago led 30-7. The Vikings did try to rally in the final minutes. With The Bears looking to play the pass, Peterson found the space he needed and romped in from 84yds and then Favre found Harvin on a 33yd streak to give the score some respectability.

The win moves Chicago to 6-3 and gives them the sole lead at the top of the NFC North, with The Vikes a game behind at 5-4. They travel to Miami next week to take on the 3-6 Dolphins.

Chicago Bears at Buffalo Bills

Chicago back on track as the see off The Bills

The Chicago Bears returned to winning ways as they saw off the The Buffalo Bills in The Rogers Center 26-13. It was a return to form of sorts as The Chicago defence looked to bounce back after their poor performance in their last outing against Washington.

The first quarter passed quickly, with the only notable event been Robbie Goulds 34yd FG, as both teams tried to establish their running game. The game exploded into life in life with 22 second quarter points. Rian Lindell answered back with a FG of his own to make the score 3-3, before good work from Cutler culminated in a TD for stand in TE Brandon Manumaleuna who walked in untouched from a 9yd pass.

The old cliche that a team is at it's most vulnerable just after they have scored was proved as a truism, as rookie RB CJ Spiller sliced through the Chicago defence on the first play after the kick off to score a spectacular 79yd TD. Defence wins Championships is another favourite, and Chicago's unit played their part when Mark Anderson sacked Buffalo QB Trent Edwards for a Safety. A breathless crowd applauded both teams off the pitch after Lindell kicked a monster 51yd FG to give the Bills the halftime lead.

Whereas the Bears had capitulated in the second half last time out, the team was determined to take control this time around. Cutler led the Bears on a 9 minute drive in the 3rd, finishing off with a 7yd lob to slot reciever Devin Aromashodu. Chicago's defence then took over the game, as time and again the hurried Edwards into throwing the ball away and containing the dangerous Spiller to only 27 second half yards. Gould kicked to fourth quarter field goals to seal the win.

The Bears entertain The 5-3 Vikings next week. The winner of that game will claim top spot in the NFC North. Chicago will be without the services of WR Johnny Knox as he recovers after breaking two ribs.

Washington Redskins at Chicago Bears

Bears falter in the rain as 'Skins win.

The Chicago Bears lost out to the Washington Redskins at a rain swept Soldier Field. The Bears could not establish the run at all as Matt Forte was held to only 9 yards on a dismal day for The Bears. Opposite number Clinton Portis passed 10,000 career rushing yards in the game, but it was another veteran, Santa Moss, who won the game as he caught 3 TD's, including the 50th of his illustrious career.

Chicago started the better of the two teams as the stretched out to a 13-0 lead, two Robbie Gould FG's and then Cutler found Hester from 3yds for the first of his two TD's. It looked like plain sailing for the Bears as their defence had contained the 'Skins to just 56yds in the first half and claimed two interceptions along the way. After forcing three and out as time ran down, Devin Hester fumbled the punt return allowing Phillip Buchanon to recover and score to make the score 13-7 at the half.

Chicago seemed to have shrugged off the set back as they started the third quarter with a 70yd drive that culminated in another TD for Hester as he clung on to Cutlers lofted pass in the corner. Washington wasted no time as they looked to mount a come back as Donovan McNabb found Rice on the first play of the next drive to score form 65yds as he outpaced The Bears secondary. Rex Grossman returned to Soldier Field when McNabb sat out after a hit from Julius Peppers, and found Moss for his second to make the score 21-20 to The 'Skins.

With no running game to fall back on, Chicago's struggled to control the game in the fourth, although they did retake the lead when Gould chipped over from 21 yards. McNabb had returned to the fray by now and again found Moss on a slanting run converting from 61 yards. The Bears struggled again with the ball, and when Cutler's pas was intercepted the game was over.

The Bears have a bye week next week to recover and regroup before they travel to Buffalo. They will be without the services of TE Greg Olsen who sits out with a groin strain.

Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears

Bears claim nervy OT win.

NFL fans who recorded this game would do well to fast forward to the start of the fourth quarter if they want to see any meaningful action as the last period produced 28 of the points scored in a game decided by Robbie Goulds overtime FG.

The watching crowd at Soldier Field had no remote to speed the action up, as they had to wait until 14 seconds before half time for the first points as Gould kicked a 48 yd Fg. Both teams struggled to make anyheadway with the ball, even when gifted with possesion as Hasselbeck through two interceptions and Cutler one. Things didn't improve in the third as another booming 48yd kick from Gould was the only score, giving Chicago a 6 - 0 lead at the start of the fourth.

Cue crazy scenes as the fourth quarter packed in more action than the rest of the previous three combined. Seattle claimed the lead when Hasselbeck found Deion Branch 1-on-1 with Urlacher. There was only going to be one winner of that contest as Branch scored from 17yds out. The Seahawks fans, who have yet to see their team win this season, were in dreamland a minute later after Hester fumbled on the kick return. Seattle took full advantage four plays later and led 14 - 6 as Leon Washington scored on a 4yd run.

Chicago, to their credit, refused to panic, and 5 minutes later they were level after good work from Forte on the ground set up his back up Chester Taylor on a four yard run. Cutler calmly found TE Greg Olsen to complete the 2 point conversion and tie the game. Chicago kept Seattle to three and out on the following drive and Forte plundered 40 yards as they drove up field for Gould to claim the lead with a 29yd FG with a minute to play.

Seattle weren't finnished yet though as Hasselbank somehow contrived to move his team into field goal range for Olino Mare kicked from 30yds to tie the scores and send the game into overtime. Seattle won the toss and looked in great form until Urlacher found his way through to Hasselbeck, forcing him to throw the ball away when he had a reciever wide open down field. Again Forte took the game to Seattle as he drove in hard to set Gould up to kick the winning FG from 29yds.

Chicago Bears at Carolina Panthers

Sorry Bears mauled by Panthers

The Chicago Bears capitulated badly in the 2nd half as Carolina pounded them into submission behind the running of Deangelo Williams on a rainy Carolina evening. The Bears had no answer to Williams as he romped to 229yds and 3 TD's, including a spectacular 66yd effort in the fourth.

The first half was a tense and even affair. Chicago tooke the lead when TE Greg Olsen caught Cutlers pass to cap an impressive first drive of the game. The Panthers hit back on their first possession when Williams sprinted clear from 15yds out. Robbie Gould completed the first half scoring with a 39yd FG as time wound down.

The Bears should have stayed in the locker rooms as they produced a pitiful performance in the second half. QB Jay Cutler threw three interceptions and The Bears defence went missing. Time and again, the Carolina offensive line created the gaps for Williams to exploit, claiming two more TD's. Back up RB Jonathan Stewart also took advantage as he scored rushing and recieving TD's of his own.

Chicago will look to bounce back next week as they entertain the winless Seahawks, although if they perform even half as badly as they did in Carolina, Seattle will be confident of breaking their duck.

Chicago Bears at New York Giants

Bears tickled pink with win over Giants

The Chicago Bears came away from New York with the win after Jay Cutler threw two touchdowns in a 23 15 victory. Cutler was in impressive form throughout the game as he lead The Bears offence around the field, connecting with 7 diferent recievers.

After Robbie Gould had put The Bears ahead with a 38yd FG, it was The Giants who crossed the line first. Without injured QB Eli Manning, The Giants look to run at Chicago. Ahmad Bradshaw busted two 20yd runs on The Giants first drive, the second resulting in a touchdown as he ran in from 25yds. Chicago managed two further Field Goals in the 2nd quarter to make the score 9-7 at the half.

After the break Cutler started to take control. first finding TE Greg Olsen from 7yds and then connecting with Johnny Knox on a perfectly flight pass as the reciever streaked in from 30yds out. As Manning watched on from the sidelines, back up QB Sage Rosenfels tried to engineer The Giants comeback but Bears safety Chris Harris intercepted a deep pass on the very next drive. New York did manage to cross the line again when RB Brandon Jacobs broke through the line to score, but The Bears managed to keep the ball and run out time.

The win moves Chicago to 3-1 and joint top of the NFC North with The Packers. They entertain the 2-2 Panthers next week.

Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears

Bears bounce back to see off the Packers

The Bears defence answered it's critics by holding Aaron Rodgers and The Packers to just one touchdown as the took they win 23 - 13 at Soldier Field. A week is a long time in sports and the Bears defensive unit looked a diferent animal than the one that got shredded in Dallas a week ago. Led by LB Brian Urlacher, The Bears D harrassed Rodgers all day, sacking him twice and pressuring him into throwing the ball away.

The first half was a kicking competion, as neither side could gain the initiative and Chicago headed into the locker room leading 9 - 6. After the break Bears QB Jay Cutler finally found some form as he led the Bears up the field on a Seven minute drive which culminated in a 7yd TD pass to FB Desmond Clark to make the score 20 - 6 in The Bears favour.

The Packers tried to mount a comeback and had Chicago fans biting their nails as rookie RB James Starks jumped over from 2yds to cut the deficit to one score with eleven minutes to play. After a Chicago punt, Rodgers looked to tie the scores on the following drive but he hadn't counted on the renewed vigour of The Bears D.

Lovie Smith will be hoping his team can continue their good form as they travel to New York to take on the 1-2 Giants next week.

Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys

Dismal Bears thrashed in Dallas

Lovie Smith claimed he was 'furious' after an inept defensive display, after The Bears proved to be no match for the rampant Cowboys. The Bears defence could find no way to halt The Cowboys potent passing attack, giving up 358yds in the air and three touchdowns.

Of equal concern will be the bluntness of The Bears attack, as Cutler struggled to find any time in the pocket, and drive after drive ended with a punt away. The Bears only managed to convert two 3rd downs all day, one of which led to the first TD of the day as Cutler found Hester fromm 44yds, taking the lead adter Dallas had opened the scoring with a FG.

From then on it was one way traffic as Tony Romo converted on touchdowns with Austin, Hurd and Choice. D Buehler chipped in with another 2 field goals.

Veteran Linebacker Brian Urlacher said his team needed to 'man up' as they prepare to face NFC North rivals Green Bay next week. The Packers lead the division on 2-0 and boast passing attack that is sure to provide more problems for The Bears.

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears

Bears struggle past Lions

The Chicago Bears got their 2010 campaign off to a winning start after an unconvincing win over the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field on Sunday. Bears coach Lovie Smith was left scrtatching his head after his team dominated the offensive statistics, but only claimed the win on the back of a Tommie Smith interceptions late in the fourth quarter.

After the early exchanges, The Bears registered the first points of the game when Robbie Gould kick the Field Goal from 34 yards, his first of four kicks on the day. Soldier Field then fell silent as Sammie Hill hit Bears QB Jay Cutler, forcing the fumble and romping home from 44 yards to claim his first ever NFL touchdown. A field Goal apiece meant the Lions led 10 - 6 at the half.

If the Bears fans thought things couldn't get any worse, they were in for a rude awakening, as Javed Best extended the Lions lead midway through the third quarter, ploughing through a static Bears defence to score form 9yds out. The Bears tried in vain to penetrate the Lions Red Zone defence, but were forced to settle for field goals twice, before Smith snagged the deflected pass and stole the game.

Baltimore crush Cowboys in Super Bowl.

The Baltimore Ravens are once again World Champions after a stunning display in Super Bowl XLV, as they deystroyed The Dallas Cowboys 31 - 7 in front of a partisan Texas crowd.

As the cliche goes, Defence wins Championships, and The Baltimore defensive unit assuredly made that comment a truism. The tone of the game was set on the first possession as Dallas lined up on 2 and 6. Romo looked to flight the ball to WR Roy Williams in the flat only for Ravens corner Dominique Foxworth to leap and snag the interception. Ray Rice, The Super Bowl MVP, signalled his intent when he glided through to score the first of his 2 touchowns 5 plays later, scoring from 2yds untouched.

Any thoughts of a see saw game after The Ravens defence again came at Romo, sacking him for a loss of 6 on the very next play, forcing the Cowboys 3 and out. The Ravens took full advantage as they drove up the field, and when Donnald Brown scampered in from 5yds The Ravens fans were already starting to believe., even though only 12 minutes had been played. Dallas just couldn't find a way through The Ravens, being forced into a long range field goal, which Buehler missed from 46yds. The Ravens again crossed the line in the 2nd quarter whne Flacco found an unmarked Todd Heap in the endzone on an 11yd fade to make the score 21 - 0 at half time.

The third quarter was a quieter affair, as neither team could exert any control with the ball, and the score remained the same untill 12 minutes from time when Jon Kitna, who had come on for the dejected Romo, found TE John Phillips in the endzone to give The Cowboys a glimmer of hope, as they narrowed the gap to 21 - 7. ll hopes of an **** fightback were dashed as The Ravens found their run game again, as both Rice and Brown marched the Ravens up the field whilst winding down the clock. The pressure finally told as Rice claimed his second of the game when he went in from 9yds. S Graham put the final nail in The Cowboys coffin when he powered over the FG from 49yds to make the final score 31 - 7.

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

Ravens clinch Super Bowl spot

The Baltimore Ravens will face the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas in Super Bowl XLV after coming from behind to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers on a snowy Pennsylvanian night. The Ravens should relish being the away team in a neutral fixture after their third road victory of the playoffs.

Pittsburgh started the games first drive and promptly swatted aside the vaunted Baltimore D as they marched down the field in just seven minutes, taking the lead when Mewelde Moore punched through to score untouched from two yards. The Ravens couldn't answer back as the offence struggled to gain any momentum in the first half and it was Pittsburgh who scored again, when Reed powered over the FG from 43 yds. The Ravens managed to regiter a score just before the half as Shayne Graham scored a FG from 17yds to make the half time score 10 - 7 Pittsburgh.

The Ravens came out for the 2nd half needing inspiration, and found it from an unlikely source, when back up CB Chris Carr intercepted Roethlisbergers pass and romped all the way for the TD from 52yds. The defensive TD was the catalyst that brough the offence to life as The Ravens suddenly started to find holes in The Steelers defence. Ray Rice, who had had a modest first half, suddenly found the extra half yard of pace, whilst QB Joe Flacco started to find his recievers in the open.

Super sub Donnald Brown got The Ravens in front as he barged his way over fom six yard, as he came on for Rice, who had carried the Ravens up the field on an 80 yard drive. Ray Lewis and his defensive teamates did their bit to aid The Ravens cause as they stalled The Steelers attack with some punnishing defence. After driving Roethlisberger to the ground with a punnishing sack from Haloti Ngata, The Steelers were forced to punt from their own 30 with 6 minutes left to play. The Steelers never touched the ball again as Rice pounded the line time and again, finnaly breaking through to score from 16yds out, to sed the travelling Ravens fans into wild celebrations as they booked their place Super Bowl XLV.

Baltimore Ravens at San Deigo Chargers

Graham kicks Ravens through

Shayne Graham was the toast of Baltimore as he kicked his 28th FG of the season as time expired to put Baltimore through to the AFC Championship game. It ended a fourth quarter packed with incident as The Chargers pegged The Ravens back to 21 all after scoring 15 points in the final quarter.

Things had started in a much calmer fashion as both teams tried to establish the run early in the game. Both Ray Rice and rookie Chargers HB Ryan Mathews set off in blistering fashion, with both backs averaging over 5 yards a carry for the game. Despite the impressive running neither team could find the end zone in the 1st, San Deigo's FG the only score.

The Ravens dominated the 2nd qtr, as Joe Flacco backed up the running of Rice as the D began to play for the run, hitting Boldin and Heap for succesive 1st downs, before Donald Brown dove in at the corner on a 7yd run, his 6th TD of the year. After forcing The Chargers 3 and out, Flacco again led his team up the field, this time putting the finishing touches himself as he found veteran WR Derrick Mason on a diving catch from 8yds out. With 2 minutes left San Deigo could only manage to drive into field goal range for Kaeding to score, making the half time score 14 - 6 to The Ravens.

Flacco and Rice ran the show in the 3rd qtr, driving the field, and when Flacco found Dante Stallworth unmarked for the score The Ravens looked to be through with a 21 - 6 lead. The Chargers refused to lie down and when Quentin Jammer intercepted Flacco, The Chargers took advantage of the short field as Darren Sproles slipped through and scored from 5yds.

With 10 minutes left and a one score lead, The Ravens offensive regrouped on the sideline, no doubt with the intention of running as much clock as possible, only for Foxworth to have the ball stripped on the resultant kick return, allowing Mathews to score from 16yds a few plays later. With the score tied at 21, it was a nervy last 9 minutes as both teams failed to exert dominance with the ball until Flacco found some form to set up the game winning kick.

The win means The Ravens travel to Pittsburgh next week for the third match up of the season after Steelers saw off The Patriots 34 27. In the NFC The Cowboys put out defending champions New Orleans 21 14 and The Vikings blew out The Cardinals 33 6.

Baltmore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars

Dominant Ravens shut-out Jags

The Baltimore Ravens sent a message to the rest of the NFL as they breezed pass the Jaguars 27 - 0. The Ravens doniated the game throughout as Jacksonville struggled to maintain any offensive momentum whilst failing to stop The Ravens offence as they suffered their first shut out of the year.

In a game billed as the clash between two of the leagues most exciting young half backs, the running game was somewhat smothered in the first half, as both defences stacked the box, and neither Ray Rice or Maurice Jones-Drew managed to register any meaningful yards in the game. Baltimore adapted better as Joe Flacco led his team around the park.

It was Flacco who created the first score when he found TE Todd Heap at the rear of the endzone towards the end of the second quarter from 12yds out. As both teams struggled to establish their running game, both punters were called into action throughout the first half until Flacco found Anquan Boldin for succesive first downs to set up Shayne Graham for a 45yd FG to end the first half scoring.

Whilst the home sides fans hoped for some magic after the interval, The Ravens had other ideas as they contiued to harass the Jags offence, forcing them to continue punting the ball away. The offence took advantage of the D's hard work as Donald Brown slipped over on a 6yd dive to extend the Ravens lead. Brown has 6 TD's for the year, mainly down to the hard yards gained by his more illustrious partner Rice. Rice finally got himself on the score sheet, converting 3rd and goal from the flat on a 5yd reception to put an endto the Jags participation this season.

In the other AFC Wildcard game, The Patriots thrashed The Jets 48 10, whilst in the NFC The Saints overcame The Eagles 34 26 and The Cardinals needed overtime to beat The Rams 34 28. Baltimore travel to San Diego to take on the Chargers next week whilst The Steelers entertain the Patriots. In the NFC The Cardinals match up with the Vikings and the Saints visit The Cowboys.
