ST. LOUIS (AP) — One defender slipped, two others whiffed and Zach Miller had clear sailing into the end zone, unusual for a tight end.
Jeremy Langford found some wide-open spaces, too, for a Chicago Bears offense that hit a high note against one of the NFL’s better defenses.
Miller caught two touchdown passes, including an 87-yard score that was Chicago’s longest play since 2010, and Langford also had two touchdowns, leading the Bears to a 37-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
The Bears (4-5) improved to 3-1 on the road. They brought thousands of fans to the Edward Jones Dome, which had a season-best 58,663 tickets distributed, about 8,000 shy of capacity.
