They sure did look like the Monsters of the Midway on Sunday Night Football.
The Chicago Bears seemed to be trending in the wrong direction heading into their Week 14 showdown with the Los Angeles Rams, especially after the team punted a sad game to the New York Giants just seven days ago. But with Mitchell Trubisky returning under center and the defense getting the home crowd behind them, that's all the Bears needed to beat arguably the best team in the league.
The Rams and head coach Sean McVay simply had no answers.
While Trubisky tossed three interceptions himself, Jared Goff tossed four on the losing end as he was terrorized in the pocket all night. He was just 20-of-44 for 180 yards and was sacked three times. Todd Gurley was held to only 28 rushing yards on 11 carries. Akiem Hicks and Khalil Mack were relentless in their pursuit up front and it made all the difference as we've seen countless times this year.
And when the Bears D is dominating and having fun, it's a scary sight.
The Rams failed to capitalize on the Saints' loss to the Cowboys and at the moment do not have home-field advantage for the postseason. The Bears, meanwhile, lead the NFC North and could very well host a playoff game to the dismay of their future opponent.
For everyone out there who thinks defensive games are boring, this one had seven turnovers and a safety, and entertained throughout. Bring good defense back!
