The Chicago Bears got their signature win on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams in a game where a lot went right — and wrong.

For those fans that stayed up last night, they were treated to a Chicago Bears win over the high-powered Los Angeles Rams in what many are calling a “statement win” this Monday morning. For much of the season, fans and pundits alike had questioned whether the Bears had beaten a good team.

That appeared to change a couple of weeks ago after their win on Sunday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings. However, after losing to the New York Giants on the road — albeit it with their backup quarterback — whispers of whether the Bears were contenders or pretenders began to surface again.

Well, after last night’s defeat of the Rams, who came in 11-1 and the top see in the NFC, there are no more whispers. In fact, you probably won’t even find anyone who is comfortable questioning this team in the privacy of their own mind.

The Bears made a statement by taking it to the Rams and walking away with a stranglehold on a playoff berth. They also moved one step closer to securing the NFC North title over the Vikings who have a difficult one tonight against the Seattle Seahawks on the road.

However, it wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns last night. While I’ll take an ugly win over a pretty loss any day, there were still a number of things that went poorly last night. We recap what went well and what didn’t and break down the good, the bad, and the ugly from last night’s win.
