Bears blast Bills in 41-9 win
(CHICAGO) – Jordan Howard scored two touchdowns and the Chicago Bears' defense had two others in a 41-9 win over the Bills in what proved to be another comedy of errors for Buffalo and its anemic offense Sunday. Eddie Jackson scored on a 65 yard fumble return and Leonard Floyd returned a tipped pass 19 yards for another score some 3 1/2 minutes apart in the second quarter. Howard, set up by Tarik Cohen's 38 yard punt return , then scored on an 18-yard scamper to cap a run in which the Bears scored four touchdowns over a span of 12 minutes, 20 seconds in the second quarter. The Bears won their second in a row and improved to 5-3 to match their best start to a season through eight games since 2013. Chicago also matched its win total from last year. Chicago's defense forced four takeaways, and limited the Bills to 264 yards offense despite missing star linebacker Khalil Mach, who missed his second straight game with an injury to his right ankle. The Bills continued their bumbling ways in dropping to 2-7. It's Buffalo's worst start since 2010. The Bills turned the ball over four times, including Nathan Peterman throwing three interceptions in his first start since a 47-3 season-opening loss at Baltimore. Peterman finished 31 of 49 for 187 yards and the second-year player has now thrown 13 interceptions on 133 career attempts, including playoffs. Chicago's Mitchell Trubisky finished 12 for 20 for 135 yards with a 2-yard touchdown to tight end Trey Burton and an interception.
