  • NFL Monday Night Football: Chicago Bears 24, Arizona Cardinals 23. The Bears remain unbeaten at 6–0, despite being down 20–0 at halftime and not scoring an offensive touchdown. Their comeback features two fumble returns for TDs and a punt return TD by Devin Hester. Neil Rackers misses a field goal with 53 seconds left that would have given the Cardinals the lead. In the postgame press conference, Cardinals head coach Dennis Green coined the phrase "They are who we thought they were!!" This quote did have meaning as both teams faced each other in the NFL Preseason. Green also gave permission for the media to "Crown the Bears Champions", in that same press conference.
