Bears 37, Rams 13

Tight end's burst helps boost Bears

ST. LOUIS — Zach Miller used the video board in the north end zone to chart a path through the Rams defense. It helped that he had one man to beat.

The Bears tight end, averaging 11.6 yards a catch in his career, got to show speed and elusive qualities on an 87-yard score as Chicago cruised.

"I did not want to get caught," Miller said. "I'd be getting clowned by everybody if I got caught."

Cornerback Trumaine Johnson was bearing down on Miller just past midfield. But Miller swerved at the St. Louis 45 on the way to one of his two touchdown catches. The 87-yarder was the longest receiving score by a Bears tight end since Willard Dewveall had a 91-yarder in 1960 against the 49ers, according to STATS.

Nick Foles, acquired from the Eagles for Sam Bradford in the winter, threw for 200 yards but had an interception and has one touchdown pass the past four games.
