Twenty-five years ago today, the Bears beat up on the New England Patriots 46-10 in Super Bowl XX.  Here’s a look back at one of the greatest games in Chicago sports history.

Were in trouble

Walter Payton, our man all season fumbled at the Bears 19-yard line on just the second play of the game. It was later reported that it was Jim McMahon’s fault and that he had called the wrong play. The turnover led to a Tony Franklin’s 36-yard field goal and a 3-0 Pats lead. After that the Bears went on a tear, a drive that included a 43 yard pass – McMahon to Gault, that would set up Kevin Butler and were tied at 3.

They were Monsters 

Richard Dent, MVP of Super Bowl XX, and Wilber Marshall sacked Eason, forcing a fumble, Dan Hampton recovered it on the Patriots 13-yard line. The Bears were held to just a FG. The Pats next drive, the defense came up big again, Dent’s hit on Craig James knocked the ball loose, Singletary recovered it on the 13 yard line, a few plays later Matt Suhey found paydirt and the Bears are up 13-3.

The Punky QB

He was the Punky QB, known as McMahon, when he hit the field he had no plan, which seemed to work.  The Bears turned in a 10 play drive , which ended with McMahon, himself scoring on a 2-yard touchdown run and a 20-3 lead. McMahon would put together another drive this time 11 plays for 72 yards and another Butler field goal. Bears 23 Pats 3 at the half.

When it rains, it pours

Once the Bears got the ball back in the second half, McMahon threw a 60-yard pass to Gault, and that would set up McMahon again, this time from 1 yard out, 30-3 Bears.  

Let’s Go D, Let’s Go D

The defense was what got the Bears to Super Bowl XX and what help continue this on pouring of domination. Bears cornerback Reggie Phillips picked off Grogan and returned it 28 yards for the pick 6, extending the lead to 37-3 as Pats fans try to find the exits.

The Offensive Fridge

The Bears would get yet another turnover, and drive down to the 1 yard line, where not Walter Payton, but William “The Refrigerator” Perry would get the carry and the touchdown, Bears up 44-3  

This Game is Over

New England finally did find the endzone, but that was it, the Bears defense dominated the rest of the game, forcing another fumble, another interception, and even sacked Grogan in the end zone for the safety making the final score 46-10.


Everytime I get behind some idiot thats either driving too slow, can’t seem to find their turn signal, or just can’t drive I just wonder, I bet that guy behind the wheel is a Cub fan. Well wonder no more. On Wednesday, the state of Illinois will begin ­selling Cubs license plates. These “Your Following a Loser” tags will run you $69 and will have a royal-blue background and team logo. It’s bad enough that Cub fans are bad drivers but now South Siders will have to stare at that ugly logo too.

The NFL announced on Tuesday, that the Bears can let Jim Cornelison sing the national anthem on Sunday after all. Lee DeWyze, the American Idol winner was scheduled to belt out the song, but after last week performance, why would the Bears want anyone else? Cornelison, usually sings the anthem for all home Blackhawks games and this Sunday will be his forth Bears game he’s performed at. Check out last Sunday’s singing of the anthem below, and as far as DeWyze goes, he won’t be left out in the cold, he’ll perform at halftime.

The new Michigan coach is Jim Harbaugh, Les Miles, Brady Hoke, words that most Michigan fans did not think they would hear, but Athletic Director Dave Brandon hired Hoke as the new Michigan football coach on Tuesday, claiming he was the man all along.  Brandon told the AP, “Brady Hoke understands Michigan and he wanted this job because it has been his dream job,We won’t have to teach him the words to ‘The Victors’ and I believe our players will respond to him because I got 100 percent positive feedback from anybody who played for him here or since he left Michigan.”  Hoke is scheduled to meet his new team Wednesday before being introduced at afternoon news conference.
