No doubt about Bears defense

The Falcons offense was no match for the Bears defense. Matt Ryan experienced the Bears defense first hand. With a forced fumble by Charles Tillman and pressure from the defensive line left and right, it's no wonder the Bears had a good game. (Chicago Tribune)

Silver and Wasserman hang out

NBA deputy Adam Silver attended Thursday's US open with Casey Wasserman, head of Wasserman Media Group. This wouldn't be a big deal except Wasserman Group Media represents athletes. And the NBA has a policy that prohibits employees, and NBA team employees from having contact with anyone connect with a player. This is the same thing Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris dealt with during the NFL lockout. (ProBasketball Talk)

Lions Win

The Lions beat the Buccaneers 27-20 Sunday and are now tied with the Bears and Packers atop the NFC North. (ProFootball Talk)

The Cubs headed to Cincinnati in style Thursday night for their final regular-season series of the season.

In what may or may not be the last themed trip of the year implemented by Joe Maddon, Cubs players sported NFL jerseys while they hit the road and some of them are unique.

Kris Bryant went old school with a retro Mike Ditka home jersey while David Ross and Pedro Strop rocked the Bo Jackson home and away Oakland Raiders jersey:
