CINCINNATI - The Bears rack up 482 of total yards of offense, and hold's Cincinnati to one score in their 33-7 thrashing of the Bengals.
Chicago went to their bread and butter on offense in the running game. The Bears ran for 232 yards Sunday afternoon. Jordan Howard accounted for 147 yards on the ground with a pair of scores. Howard's performance puts him over the one thousand yard mark for the second year in a row.
"It starts up front," says Bears head coach John Fox.
"Not taking anything away from any our skill guys. But whether it's pass protection, or whether it's run blocking I think that all starts and finishes up front. So we had a good day up front."
The Bears defense was sharp against the Bengals. They held Cincinnati's offense to 234 yards on offense. Andy Dalton threw for just 141 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
Another key number in favor of the Bears was time of possession. Chicago's offense held the ball for over 38 minutes, and picked up 29 first downs in the process.
"We just went out there and executed today," says Bears Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
"We just had fun doing it. So we just trusted the plan, went out there, let it loose."
The Bears improve to 4-9 on the year. They are headed to Detroit next Sunday for their second match-up with the Lions this season.
