With Brian Urlacher retired and Lance Briggs, Charles Tillman and Henry Melton injured, the Bears defense is not what it used to be. They rank near the bottom of the league in total defense, rush defense, pass defense and points allowed, but they are still good at generating turnovers, especially forced fumbles. The Bears lead the NFL with 17 forced fumbles. They have recovered eight of them, including one for a touchdown. It has been a while since Rice coughed the ball up, but he should be on alert Sunday. Ditto for quarterback Joe Flacco, who lost a fumble against the Bengals.
