Bears 23, Rams 6

CHICAGO - Major Wright returned an interception 45 yards for a touchdown in Chicago's pounding of St. Louis.

The defense came to the rescue against the Rams (1-2), holding them to 160 yards and sacking Sam Bradford six times. That was enough on a day when Jay Cutler struggled for the Bears, who had an ugly loss to Green Bay last week.

The Bears (2-1) had just kicked a field goal to extend their lead to 13-6 in the fourth quarter when Wright came up with the big return.

Jaguars 22, Colts 17

INDIANAPOLIS - Jacksonville's Blaine Gabbert connected with Cecil Shorts III on a 80-yard TD pass with 45 seconds left to beat Indianapolis.

Andrew Luck drove the Colts (1-2) 48 yards in five plays to set up Adam Vinatieri for a 37-yard field goal. That gave Indy a 17-16 lead with 56 seconds to go.

But on the next snap, Shorts got behind Colts safety Sergio Brown and Gabbert hit him in stride. Shorts sprinted free, diving into the end zone for the score.
