The Los Angeles Rams intercepted Nick Foles twice and held the offense of the Chicago Bears to just a lone field goal as they cruised to a 24-10 victory on Monday night.

Jalen Ramsey intercepted Foles with just over three minutes left to play to end any hope of a late comeback for the Bears.

Bears safety Eddie Jackson had picked up a Robert Woods fumble and returned it for an 8-yard touchdown to cut the Los Angeles lead to 24-10 with 7:30 left to play. It was the only trip into the end zone on the night for Chicago.

The Bears Offense had four straight drives end essentially in turnovers with two drives being ended inside the Rams’ 10-yard line. Foles was intercepted by safety Taylor Rapp in the end zone to thwart a scoring opportunity midway through the third quarter. Chicago then had two straight drives end in failed fourth down conversions, including a sack of Foles on fourth-and-goal from the Rams’ 4-yard line. Foles was then intercepted by Ramsey as the offense just couldn’t put points on the board.

Jared Goff completed 23 of 33 passes for 219 yards with a pair of touchdown passes to Josh Reynolds and Gerald Everett. Malcolm Brown also scored on a 1-yard run for Los Angeles.

Foles completed 28 of 40 passes for 261 yards with the two interceptions for Chicago. Allen Robinson caught four passes for 70 yards but left the game in the fourth quarter to be evaluated for a concussion.

Punter Johnny Hekker was one of the stars of the evening for the Rams as all five punts were downed inside the Chicago 10-yard line.

Reynolds’ 4-yard touchdown gave the Rams a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter.

Cairo Santos converted a 42-yard field goal that served as Chicago’s only offensive points of the night. Samuel Solman’s 22-yard field goal pushed the L.A. lead to 10-3 at halftime.

Brown’s 1-yard touchdown run extended the Rams lead to 17-3 in the third quarter. After Rapp’s interception of Foles, the Rams would drive for another score with Everett catching a 12-yard touchdown as Los Angeles grabbed a 24-3 lead.

  1. Nagy is not qualified to be a headcoach. I ALMOST feel bad for the Bears fans. A superbowl caliber defense, but no offense or coach to make them better.

  2. Ryan Pace is sitting in his office feeling more and more validated that the Bears offensive problems wasn’t JUST because of Trubisky.

    Navy but the BULLSEYE squarely on himself when he benched Trubisky.

    Other than Foles lighting up a LOUSY Falcons team, Nagys stupid offense hasn’t been one IOTA better with Foles under center.

  3. At what time does it become obvious Nagy is part of the problem? That offense is just non-existent. They had 3 points in the first half. You could give any random coach off the street the chance to run that offense for 30 minutes and couldn’t do worse. Foles obviously can’t play in non-high leverage situations and spot starts, he just can’t. But Nagy is a mess and I don’t get why he continues to be so arrogant. If I’m them I offer a second for Fitzpatrick yesterday.

  4. NFC West now 19-8, all above .500. NFC East 7-20, all below .500. Incredible! Has this ever happened 7 games into a season?

  5. Nick Files is what most teams figured him to be. He has flashes of billiance, and like Joe Flacco,had a great Superbowl run but has not shown the ability to win consistently. Nice guy, good teammate, good citizen, handled the QB controversy at Philly, Chicago and points between with class and poise. But he’s not the franchise QB most teams are looking for.

  6. Nagy’s play designs are terrible. He has a terrible o-line and does nothing to create leverage with motions etc. In an interview Foles stated he gets play calls that he knows won’t work due to poor protection but he has to try and make them work. That’s an out of touch playcaller.

  7. The Rams embarrassed themselves by playing so pathetically against the 49ers. The Bears caught the backlash.

  8. “MostlyRight says:

    NFC West now 19-8, all above .500. NFC East 7-20, all below .500. Incredible! Has this ever happened 7 games into a season?”

    AND the “last place” team happens to be the defending NFC champion. As a Rams fan it is sad to think one of these teams will be on the outside looking in (likely) in January. They all four look legit.

  9. This is really nothing new for the Bears O. If you think back what has changed is that the league basically (by a rule change) eliminated the return game. How many times did Devin Hester save the Bears lack of O and save the game? Bears D has always been really good.

  10. This demonstrates that the NFC Central is also questionable. It’s another division where a mediocre record may result in a playoff birth.

    Pace shouldn’t feel one iota better. He’s the clown that built that o-line that would get dominated by a college defense. Pace is a major, major part of the problem. Blame the QB or RB all you want, but you could have Montana and Craig behind that o-line and it wouldn’t matter.

    NFL is very weak this year.

    Correction New England is very weak this year. There’s 12 teams in the NFL sitting at 5-2 or better, 2 teams at 4-2, and 3 teams at .500 or better.
