Bears Capture NFC North, Leno Jr Proposes, Steelers Beat Pats, Rams Frustrated


A few week 15 highlights in the NFL:

The Chicago Bears beat the Green Bay Packers 24-17. With the win, the Bears capture the NFC North for the first time in eight years. After the game, Bears left tackle Charles Leno Jr proposed to his girlfriend (who said yes). Aside from the proposal, the best play of the day was Bears’ linebacker Khalil Mack sacking Packers Aaron Rodgers with his back.

The Pittsburgh Steelers finally beat their nemesis, the New England Patriots. In the 4th quarter with the Patriots down 10-14, quarterback Tom Brady was intercepted, then Steelers’ kicker Boswell hit a field goal for Pittsburgh to go up 17-10. With less than a minute left in the game, Brady tried to come back but couldn’t find a way to win. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger secured his first win vs Tom Brady since 2011, and his team snapped a three-game losing streak. Steelers 17, Patriots 10.

The Los Angeles Rams are having a frustrating December. With their loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, the Rams’ offense looks vulnerable. In just the last 2 games, Rams’ quarterback Jared Goff has had zero touchdowns and six interceptions. The Eagles, on the other hand, looked pretty good under backup quarterback Nick Foles (who’s in for injured Carson Wentz). Eagles 30, Rams 23.
