The Chicago Bears were in a must win situation against one of the best defenses in the league.

The offense for the Chicago Bears started off strong, but were stopped a few times with three turnovers that looked like would come back to bite them. The defense played fairly well today as they were able to hold Cleveland’s offense to just two offensive touchdowns.

Big man running back Michael Bush has been finding his groove over the last couple of the games and proved that he wasn’t down and out just yet. Bush picked up his biggest rushing touchdown of the year with a 40 yard run that was pretty much the dagger for this game.

It’s a huge win for this Chicago Bears team as they’ll be cheering for the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night. It’ll be a tough fight with the last two games of the regular season, but they’re not out of the playoff race just yet.

Today’s win puts them a half game ahead of the Lions.
