(670 The Score) It might finally be happening.
After four years, several hundred million dollars and even more missed holding calls against star edge rusher Khalil Mack, the Bears may finally have the pass rush that general manager Ryan Pace has dreamed of. The Bears defense has lived near the quarterback in the first four games of the season, and after a strong performance (four sacks, seven quarterback hits) in a 24-14 win against the Lions on Sunday, the Bears now lead the NFL with 15 sacks.
"The defense being able to have them one-fo- five in the red zone, one-for-four goal-to-go, I think, or maybe it was one-for-three, get those stops, that's important," coach Matt Nagy said. "You're taking points off the board. When you play that way, you can win football games."
