Bears defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (team-high seven sacks) has played at a Pro Bowl level in 2017 but the veteran expressed disappointment on Wednesday over his number of missed opportunities. "I think I missed about four sacks in the last month," Hicks told reporters at Halas Hall. "I'm talking about hands on the quarterback and falling off. But in those situations I've set up other guys to be able to finish those sacks off."

"I think his return style was unique; Devin Hester's was. His ability to set up blocks in the open field while still being able to move and change the angles of people. What I noticed watching him return, it always like he was never looking at the guy that was in front of him. He was one block ahead. He knew how he was going to make this guy miss; he was trying to make the next guy miss and set up his blocks." -- Bears special teams coordinator on Devin Hester, who announced his retirement on Tuesday.

“He's got great talent, No.1. He's very accurate. He's got great arm talent. He can put the ball on the money with good speed and anticipation, puts it in the right spots and it just shows his experience in those situations that he knows when to take maybe a little extra chance or when it's got to be thrown in there tighter or on time and on rhythm. He's a very impressive quarterback. You can see why they gave him all that money.” -- Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio on Saturday's opponent, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Trubisky, Howard lead Bears over hapless Bengals 33-7

Rookie Mitchell Trubisky threw for a touchdown and ran for another in his best showing yet, and the Chicago Bears ended a five-game losing streak by routing the lackluster Cincinnati Bengals 33-7 on Sunday, their most lopsided victory in five years.

Inside zone scheme on the Jordan Howard TD. Ran through some contact, too. That gives Howard 147 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 23 carries.

Bears have to be pleased with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who completed 17 of 23 pass attempts for 170 yards (94.5 QB rating) as Chicago leads 12-7 at halftime. The Bears have kept it simple for Trubisky, but he's been extremely accurate underneath.

The Bears are also giving Deiondre Hall a little time at safety...and Hall just whiffed on a tackle on 3rd down.

The Bears just put second-year safety Deon Bush in the game to replace Chris Prosinski....and Bush was promptly beaten for a touchdown.
