Bears 24, Patriots 21: Wait, what?

RICK MORRISSEY: Bad one week, good the next. If you follow that thinking, the Bears should beat Tom Brady and the Patriots this week because A) they have no business beating Tom Brady and the Patriots, B) the game is on the road and C) the hell if I know.

Martellus Bennett says Bears must stay the course

Tight end Martellus Bennett channeled his inner Tom Thibodeau on Wednesday — “DYJ: Do your job,” he said — when preaching consistency after the Bears’ loss against the Dolphins and subsequent locker-room blowup. “When you’re facing adversity, it’s easy for guys to want to change something or try to go a different direction,” he said. “But the whole thing for everyone is to continue to do what we do and fix the issues you have as an individual.”...

Royals chase Peavy in Game 2, use five-run 6th to even World Series

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Royals got to Jake Peavy — and everyone else from the Giants bullpen that manager Bruce Bochy threw at them — for five tiebreaking runs in the sixth inning, and Kansas City evened the World Series at a game apiece with a 7-2 victory Wednesday at Kauffman Stadium. A night after getting shut down by Giants ace Madison Bumgarner in a 7-1 loss, the Royals quickly fell behind in Game 2 on Gregor Blanco’s leadoff home run agains flamethrower...

Tom Brady has earned ‘elite’ distinction; jury still out on Jay Cutler’s worth

It’s a bizarre week to debate whether Bears quarterback Jay Cutler can, will be or already is an elite quarterback. Yet, here we are, and we have Bears fan “Ryan” to thank for broaching the always-steamy topic during a team-run chat with general manager Phil Emery this week. “No matter how you analyze the history of quarterbacks in the NFL,” Emery replied, “if you have a winning record, you are an elite player at that position.” That would include Kyle...

Bros Bowl: Vereen brothers will face each other for first time

They came up with excuses, each one more elaborate than the last: It got caught under a chair, it got lost somewhere in the house or a visiting friend broke it. Soon enough, their parents figured out the truth — Brock and Shane Vereen would get so frustrated after losing Madden video games to each other that they’d smash the Xbox controllers on the ­carpet in their home in Valencia, California. They broke 11 of them — Brock six and Shane five, or maybe it was...

Jared Allen unclear on why Bears reduced his playing time

There may be some confusion at Halas Hall in regard to the role Jared Allen played during the Bears' 27-14 home loss to the Dolphins and the role he expects to play going forward.

Blackhawks believe heavier workload a benefit

After a meandering start to the season, the Blackhawks have entered a difficult stretch that includes nine games in 15 nights.

Jared Allen not dwelling on reduced action

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen participated in fewer snaps on defense than key reserve Willie Young in Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins, but the five-time Pro Bowler doesn't believe reduced playing time for him is in the team's plans. "It's probably an aberration," Allen said, laughing. "They haven't told me I am on reduced playing time. We'll take it for that." Allen played in 46 of the club's 70 snaps against the Dolphins, while Young participated in 54 snaps.

Brock Vereen excited about family reunion

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears first-year free safety Brock Vereen has had the date circled on his calendar for months. Sunday’s game in New England potentially pits Vereen against old brother Shane -- the Patriots' starting running back and key contributor on offense with 259 rushing yards (one touchdown), and 23 receptions for 185 yards and two scores. The brothers have yet to battle each other during a game -- until now. "After draft day obviously we looked up each other's schedules," Brock Vereen said.

Jared Allen: Bears not missing a locker room leader

Jared Allen has only played six games as a Chicago Bear, not exactly a longstanding presence in the locker room after joining the organization in March. But the veteran defensive end wants it made perfectly clear that his views on leadership in the NFL don’t revolve around tenure or voice...
