Bears...27 Rams...3

November 24, 2008|Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — Another opponent put the St. Louis Rams hopelessly behind by halftime. This time, it was the Chicago Bears' turn to roll up some big numbers.

Matt Forte scored on two long runs and Marc Bulger lasted only five plays against a defense that had a season-best five sacks, helping the Bears build a 21-point cushion in a 27-3 victory.

Kyle Orton set a franchise record with 185 consecutive passes without an interception, helping the Bears (6-5) rebound from a 37-3 blowout loss at Green Bay last week and keep a share of first place in the balanced NFC North.

The Rams (2-9) have lost five straight since Steven Jackson injured his thigh late in a win over the Cowboys and were booed off the field at halftime as the Bears were cheered.

Quoteworthy: "I just run through the holes, and they do the dirty work up front." -- Matt Forte, Bears running back, on his offensive line
