Rams Vs. Bears: A Look Back

The St. Louis Rams and the Chicago Bears have a pretty lengthy history together, since both are among the oldest franchises in the NFL (the Rams spanned time in Cleveland and L.A.). Chicago leads the series 51-34-3 over that stretch. But each season, each week is a new game, and Jeff Fisher's Rams are a team capable of winning any week they play.

The Rams and the Bears last met in 2009, with Chicago winning that one 17-9. The Bears have won the last three, dating back to 2006. Matt Forte, who is out this week, ran for 91 yards and a touchdown in that game, and Cutler hit Devin Hester for a 37-yard bomb. Kyle Boller was the Rams' quarterback in that game.

Fisher downplayed his trip to Chicago, where his NFL career began as a player. He's been back there to play many times since the 1981-1984 stretch. He spent the 1985 season on inured reserve, helping legendary defensive coach Buddy Ryan and the team to a Super Bowl win that year. Much of Fisher's coaching philosophy has its roots in Ryan's approach.

To be exact, FIsher has coached against the Bears four times, and has a 1-3 record in those games. He's 1-1 against Lovie Smith as a head coach.

Rams tight ends coach Rob Boras held the same position in Chicago from 2004-2009.

The history continues on Sunday.
