In less than a calendar week, the Bears lost control of the NFC North and took it back again.
LOS ANGELES -- It's extremely rare for a defense-only player to contend for the Heisman Trophy, let alone win it.
A mantra of the Bears is their focus on cleaning some things up, whether assignments, procedures, techniques or whatever.
The 2012 Bears are scoring 27 points per game, offense and defense combined. Three of their six games have been against defenses ranked in the top 10 (Dallas, Detroit, St. Louis).
