The Chicago Bears lead the St. Louis Rams 10-3 heading into halftime thanks to sound defense and a running game by committee. Chicago's Kahlil Bell and Michael Bush have replaced the injured Matt Forte by producing 77 yards on the ground and a 4.1 per carry average. Bush scored at the two minute warning, punching in a 3-yard run to cap an 81-yard drive.
Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein nailed a 56-yard field goal with 27 remaining in the half to get St. Louis on the scoreboard.
The Bears nearly have a 2:1 advantage in the time of possession game because of the ball control, and they also have 14 first downs to the Rams' six.
St. Louis has struggled in all offensive facets, especially the run game. Steven Jackson, who gave it a go with a testy groin injury, has four carries for seven yards.
