SportsPulse: The Kliff and Klyer experiment were given their first signature victory in opposition to Seattle immediately vintage. Mackenzie Salmon overreact to the largest storylines from Week 7 within the NFL.


The Los Angeles Rams administered a resounding 24-10 win over the Chicago Bears in a matchup of NFC playoff contenders on “Monday Night time Soccer.”

The Rams’ rebound efficiency took a toll at the Bears offense, which handiest controlled to get a box objective within the defeat. Past due within the fourth quarter of the lopsided sport, ESPN analyst Brian Griese — a former NFL quarterback — discussed one thing eye-opening Bears quarterback Nick Foles shared throughout a manufacturing assembly Sunday.

“We have been chatting with Nick Foles the day past, and he mentioned, ‘, now and again play calls are available in and I do know that I don’t have time to execute that play name. , I’m the only out right here getting hit. Every now and then the fellow calling the performs, Matt Nagy, he does not understand how a lot time there may be again right here,’ ” Griese mentioned within the fourth quarter. “In order that’s one thing that they have got to get labored out.”

After the sport, Foles and Bears head trainer Matt Nagy have been requested by way of newshounds about that manufacturing assembly dialog Foles had with Griese.

“That used to be certainly a miscommunication with Brian and I. We do those pregame conversations the day prior to the sport simply to offer them data,” Foles mentioned after the sport. “Trainer Nagy and I’ve nice conversations at the sidelines. So, there could be instances we undergo it previously and say ‘what do you suppose?’ And there is instances you were given to get the ball out fast and whatnot. However, in the ones scenarios, Matt and I’ve a super courting at the sideline with conversations and the whole thing. I believe in that state of affairs with Brian it used to be a miscommunication of phrases. That is not what I used to be seeking to deliver throughout in that dialog. 

“When Trainer Nagy and I communicate at the sidelines, we’ll undergo performs and other scenarios and pass in the course of the protection. I’ll be fair, like, ‘howdy, at this time, perhaps get the ball out sooner. They’re bringing some pressures and whatnot.’ … A part of that used to be, ‘Hi there, perhaps we don’t have the time at this time for this sort of drop as a result of what they’re bringing, the pressures they’re bringing.’ It’s more straightforward with that to move, ‘howdy, 1, 2, three ball out.’

“That’s the place the miscommunication (with Griese) lies. The ones are if truth be told conversations Trainer Nagy and I’ve at the sidelines in order that once we pass to the sector we’re in a position to roll. I believe that’s a precious courting I’ve with him, so to communicate like that and perceive in particular for me to discuss each and every sport is its personal entity so it’s a must to know the way to play it in the suitable means.”

Nagy gave the impression shocked by way of what used to be relayed by way of Griese at the broadcast.

“Nick and I’ve a gorgeous just right courting, and he hasn’t mentioned the rest,” Nagy said. “I am positive he’ll provide an explanation for what he intended by way of that.”

Within the offseason, the Bears traded for Foles as festival for Mitchell Trubisky, the No. 2 total select within the 2017 NFL draft. Trubisky used to be benched throughout a Week three sport in opposition to the Atlanta Falcons during which the Bears fixed a 20-point fourth-quarter comeback with Foles at quarterback for a 30-26 win.
