Best bet on the Tube

All those 30-something defenders for the Chicago Bears can still play. They get to quarterbacks and make plenty of tackles even if they may have lost a little speed through the years. The Bears went into Week 4 leading the NFL with 14 sacks, including 2 1/2 each by ends Julius Peppers and Israel Idonije. Linebackers Lance Briggs and Brian Urlacher lead the team with 21 tackles each. The Bears will be at Cowboys Stadium chasing quarterback Tony Romo tonight (5:30, ESPN) in a matchup of 2-1 teams. Romo took quite a beating last week. He was sacked four times, twice losing fumbles, in a tight win over Tampa Bay. – Associated Press
