Despite seven touchdowns, Bears DST should sit Week 16


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) The Bears DST scored its seventh touchdown Week 15 when Zack Bowman returned an interception 43 yards at Cleveland. Only the Chiefs DST, with 11 touchdowns, has more.

Still, the Bears DST is averaging only 5.8 Fantasy points over its last four games. Chicago ranks 27th in total defense (380.4) and 28th in points allowed (27.9).
