|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
The Chicago Bears won a defensive battle on the road in one of the lowest-scoring games of the season. Rex Grossman (right) threw for only 119 yards. -- but had zero turnovers. The Bears established themselves in the trenches to mount a ground attack in the second half (173 yards).
The Bears were able to pressure Jets QB Chad Pennington enough out of a base four-man rush to force two costly interceptions. Chicago receiver Mark Bradley had several key receptions and the only touchdown of the game.
The Bears' 10-0 victory over the Jets was their second win in eight days at Giants Stadium. The only other team to win two road games at the same stadium within eight days was the Redskins at Giants Stadium in 1999. Prior to that, the shortest span for wins by a visiting team at the same stadium was 11 days, and it had stood since 1920 when the Decatur Staleys won at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Tigers on Nov. 25 and against the Chicago Cardinals on Dec. 5.• For more Elias Says, Click here
