Thursday Night Football Chicago Bears- Miami Dolphins Post Game

Miami, FL (Sports Network) – Matt Forte rushed for 97 yards and Robbie Gould kicked three field goals, as the Chicago Bears took a 16-0 victory over the offensively challenged Miami Dolphins.

Jay Cutler completed 16-of-25 passes for 156 yards with one interception for the Bears (7-3), who have won three in a row and moved into first place in the NFC North. Green Bay is 6-3 and faces Minnesota this weekend.

Chicago recorded the 700th victory in franchise annals, which stands as the highest total in NFL history.

Miami was playing without its top two quarterbacks, Chad Pennington and Chad Henne, who were both injured in Sunday’s win over Tennessee. The start then fell to Tyler Thigpen, who threw for 187 yards on 17-of-29 efficiency, with one interception.

However, Thigpen was the leading rusher with 27 yards for the Dolphins (5-5), who got more bad news when receiver Brandon Marshall suffered a hamstring injury late in the first half and did not return.
