. And the Rams have their share of playmakers and stars on that side of the ball.But while the temptation is to make Chicago’s 15-6 win a testament to great defense http://www.thebearslockerroom.com/authentic-adam-shaheen-jersey , it was perhaps more of a situation of two quarterbacks playing poorly.Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky played less poorly. He threw for 110 yards and had three interceptions, and was clearly the better of the two.Rams counterpart Jared Goff was, to be blunt, a real mess. He finished 20-of-44 for 180 yards and four interceptions, for a 19.1 passer rating. The turnovers were bad, but the 4.1 yards per pass attempt might have been as egregious a number. Beyond the stats, however, Goff looked uncomfortable throughout the night, whether the culprit was his own teammates stepping on his feet, getting subtly whacked in the head as he threw, or the cold weather.Or, you know, the Bears defense.From the safety which opened the second half to the fourth quarter/fourth down sack by Akiem Hicks, the Bears were able to keep Goff in the pocket and under duress, and it was not a good thing for the Rams. When he’s not moving and in some kind of rhythm, he can look extremely average, if that.There might not many defenses that can make the Rams look so out of sorts, but the Bears have one, and it was good enough to overcome a subpar night from their own quarterback.Here are five more things we learned during1. No one was happier with the Bears Sunday night than the Saints. And the Saints were pretty happy to begin with, after clinching the NFC South title earlier in the day.With the loss dropping the Rams to 11-2, the Saints (11-2 with the head-to-head tiebreaker) once again have the inside track toward home field advantage in the NFC playoffs.And that’s incredibly important, considering what a difference location makes for the Saints in the postseason.Since Sean Payton took over in 2006, the Saints are 5-0 in the postseason in the Superdome. They’re 1-5 in another team’s building (and 1-0 at neutral sites Womens Mitchell Trubisky Jersey , as in their Super Bowl win).While the Rams will certainly be glad to get in out of the cold, they don’t necessarily want to go indoors in New Orleans in January, after losing 45-35 there in November.2. The Bears (9-4) deserved bonus points for their third-quarter touchdown, simply for their extensive use of big men.The touchdown pass to spare tackle Bradley Sowell was slick, after he reported eligible and slipped out into the flat on the goal-line play.It was the fake to defensive tackle Akiem Hicks that helped sell it and get Sowell so open, as the Rams were line up in a jumbo personnel package and usually when people do that they run power plays.But the Bears decided to have fun instead. Football can be fun, even without 100 points on the scoreboard. Especially with fat guy touchdowns, and the ensuing fat guy dances. Football is better when fat guys do big fat things.3. On the other hand, sometimes bright young coaches can overcomplicate the game.The Bears defense is quite good, that’s a given. But Rams running back Todd Gurley had just eight touches in the first three quarters (six carries, two receptions).Gurley entered the game with 1,649 yards from scrimmage and 19 touchdowns, and he’s their best offensive skill player. So maybe, you know, giving it to him more would have helped.Sean McVay is very smart, and knows more about drawing up offense than most people employed in the league (and certainly more than me). But he didn’t get the ball to his best player. It doesn’t have to be that hard.4. The Rams dodged a bullet when center John Sullivan was evaluated for a concussion in the first half, but was cleared and returned.Because they’re keeping extras elsewhere, the Rams have just seven offensive linemen on the roster.Rookie Brian Allen, their fourth-round pick, is the interior line backup, and he came in for a bit before Sullivan made it back. Fellow rookie Joseph Noteboom, their third-rounder, is the backup tackle Pat O'Donnell Jersey , and he had to come in during the fourth quarter when left guard Rodger Saffold went down.It’s a good line, but that lack of depth could end up biting them at some point. And it’s the kind of risk you take when you swing for the fences by trading for expensive veterans and sign big-ticket free agents.5. The Bears lost a chance to catch the Rams off guard, when they caught an official off guard.After initially lining up for a punt, the Bears tried to run their offense back on the field, but tackle Bobby Massie knocked line judge Carl Johnson down to the ground. Officials stopped the game since he wasn’t in a position to call the play.That didn’t satisfy Bears coach Matt Nagy, since the Rams had a chance to adjust personnel. They ended up punting anyway. six seconds, no timeouts, and one of the best passes you will ever see."Last offseason, I wrote a series of Throwback Thursday articles looking back at some of the most memorable moments in Atlanta Falcons history. That series culminated with an article looking back at the time newly minted General Manager Thomas Dimitroff drafted Matt Ryan with the third overall pick. Here’s how that specific article concluded:Well, that time has come — welcome to the “Matty Ice Moments” series. This will be a series of articles dedicated to looking back on Matt Ryan-centric moments, in an attempt to help distract us from the dead period a little bit.And if you don’t like Matt Ryan and think that we’re focusing on him too much this offseason, then that’s just too bad I guess.You can find last week’s article in this series, looking back on Ryan’s first professional pass, here.The improbable 2008 comeback against Chicago:Behind their workhorse running back Michael Turner and rookie sensation quarterback Matt Ryan, the 2008 Atlanta Falcons came out of the gates swinging in what most expected to be a lost season.When Week 6 rolled around the team was sitting pretty with a 3-2 record when they welcomed the also 3-2 Chicago Bears to the Georgia Dome for an important NFC matchup.Chicago boasted a very formidable defense anchored by names such as Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs, and Charles Tillman. On offense they had the solid Kyle Orton at QB, but were driven by their phenomenal young running back Matt Forte. This was a team just two years removed from a Super Bowl appearance.The Falcons had the lead throughout most of this game, going up 19-10 at one point early in the fourth quarter. Orton would lead an impressive comeback which culminated in a 17-yard touchdown pass to Rashied Davis to take a 20-19 lead with 11 seconds left, however.Atlanta seemed dead in the water — the Bears sideline was celebrating what seemed to be a sure victory, and Orton was leaned back on the sideline doing fist bumps and hugging teammates after going 7-11 for 71 yards (and the touchdown) on what looked to be the game-winning drive.Harry Douglas returned the ensuing kickoff to Atlanta’s 44-yard-line, leaving six seconds on the clock, and no timeouts for Matt Ryan to try and pull off a minor miracle. Most of us remember Ryan’s portion of this comeback fondly http://www.thebearslockerroom.com/authentic-kyle-long-jersey , but some tend to forget that it was Douglas’ excellent return which made it all possible (Edit: I am also among those who was among the forgetful, since I originally thought it was Norwood who returned the kick, but it was in fact Douglas).Out of the double back shotgun formation, Ryan took the snap, dropped back, and made one of the best throws you will ever see, across his body while getting crushed by a defender. The pass found the waiting hands of Michael Jenkins at Chicago 29-yard-line, and he had just enough space to tap his toes before falling out of bounds. This entire sequence took five seconds, and left Atlanta with just enough time on the clock to attempt a field goal.Following a Ryan point to Jenkins and a celebratory fist pump, Jason Elam nailed a 48-yard field goal to secure an improbable victory. Now sitting at 4-2, the Falcons had matched their win total from the entire 2007 season before even the halfway point in 2008. They went into the Week 7 bye week with new life, having now won back to back games for the first time all season.In the postgame press conference, head coach Mike Smith stated something everyone had just learned in real time just a few minutes prior — “Matt’s go it, I don’t know what it is, but he’s got it.”This was the moment when Falcons fans realized that they had something special with their quarterback, and that general manager Thomas Dimitroff did indeed make the right decision in selecting him third overall. Matt Ryan was the real deal, and he showcased it with this brazen moment against all odds.After not having passed for 200 yards in a game in his professional career up until that point, Ryan threw for 301 passing yards and a touchdown in this one. With Michael Turner held completely in check, this was the first game in his career where Ryan really had to take over and win the game.This comeback against the Bears ended up being the defining moment of the 2008 season. It was the turning point, where most fans realized that this team was the real deal and not just some fluke.They had realized that Matt Ryan was the real deal and not just some fluke.
