There was no need for an impromptu pep talk from Mike Brown or Brian Urlacher, no need for Lovie Smith to be anything but his typically reserved self.
The Bears' defense knew what was at stake as their grasp on a four-point lead Sunday night started to...

Numbers mean little to Alex Brown.
Forget that the trio of defensive ends Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck has combined for 25.5 of the Giants' NFL-high 38 sacks this season.
Ignore that the Bears' defensive-end trio of Brown,...

One stop. That's all the Bears needed.

Jay Cutler pumped his fists. He hugged his linemen. And he raised both arms triumphantly - all inside the final 2 minutes.
