Quarterback Jim McMahon was among nine Bears ticketed for speeding as they returned from training camp in Platteville, Wis., to Chicago, Illinois State Police said. During a three-hour air-speed check Wednesday on Bypass 20 and Perryville Road, just outside Rockford, police stopped 41 cars for speeding. Nine of the 41 were driven by Bear players. Tight end Emery Moorehead was timed the fastest at 86 m.p.h., 31 over the 55-m.p.h. speed limit, police said.

The Chicago Bears worked out in steamy 100-degree temperatures Monday in Platteville, Wis., but Jim Thornton, a rookie from Cal State Fullerton trying to impress his coaches at the tight end spot, wasn't complaining. "The heat is only a problem to people who let it be a problem," said Thornton, who is challenging Cap Boso and Emery Moorehead. The Bears will meet the Miami Dolphins Saturday at Soldier Field in their first exhibition game of the season.

Times NFL writer T.J. Simers poses--and answers--the burning questions for this week's games: Question: Who got hurt the most by the NFL's decision to go to Houston? Answer: The stores where Georgia Frontiere does her shopping. When the Rams left Anaheim, they agreed not to take any money when the league expanded to 31 and 32 teams unless one of those teams was awarded to Los Angeles. So when Cleveland paid $17 million to each team in the league to gain entry, the Rams were passed over.

Supposedly, Willie Gault's specialty is catching passes. But he didn't catch a single one Sunday. Instead, his 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown triggered a record 31-point second quarter for the Chicago Bears, who went on to rout the Washington Redskins, 45-10. "Willie Gault's play was outstanding," Bear Coach Mike Ditka said after his team improved to 4-0. "It was the catalyst. The kickoff return turned on everybody. Even the fans." And, also, quarterback Jim McMahon.

With Chicago trailing, 13-3, at the start of the fourth quarter Monday night, Bear running back Matt Suhey gave Coach Mike Ditka some advice. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," Suhey told the coach. Ditka knew exactly what Suhey meant. He ordered the Bears back to what they do best--running the ball--and they rallied to beat Detroit, 16-13, spoiling the first NFL start for Lion quarterback Chuck Long.

Once again, the Chicago Bears showed they are almost an average team without Jim McMahon. Almost, but not quite, because of their dominating defense, which carved out a 13-10 victory Sunday over the Atlanta Falcons. With McMahon watching from the sidelines with a shoulder injury, backup quarterback Mike Tomczak was unable to get a first down for the first 24 minutes and Atlanta (5-5-1) took a 10-3 halftime lead.

It was Walter Payton Day at Soldier Field, but Brian Bosworth crashed the party. Bosworth recovered two fumbles and nearly returned one for a touchdown Sunday as the Seattle Seahawks beat Chicago, 34-21, and spoiled Payton's final regular-season home appearance. And in another upset, the rookie linebacker, who usually has plenty to say, declined to talk to reporters after the game. Payton, the NFL's all-time leading rusher with 16,644 yards, ran 17 times for 79 yards and scored 2 touchdowns.

Jim McMahon was back and he brought the rest of the Chicago Bears with him. McMahon, playing with a sore right shoulder that kept him out of the last two games, passed for three touchdowns and ran for another Sunday as the Bears routed Cincinnati, 44-7, for their most impressive victory since the Super Bowl. "Today, we played a complete ballgame for a change--our offense, our defense, and our special teams," said tight end Emery Moorehead, who caught McMahon's third touchdown pass.

The game looked like a mismatch on paper and, for 30 minutes, it was. The other way. Unbeaten Chicago escaped its second scare of the season from Tampa Bay on Sunday by scoring 24 points in the second half to recover from a slow start and beat the Buccaneers, 27-19. The offensive show directed by quarterback Jim McMahon after halftime was impressive, but Chicago Coach Mike Ditka said defense was the key to the club's fifth straight victory.
