Chicago Bears' Daniel Manning celebrates after breaking up a Miami Dolphins' pass on Thursday.

The Chicago Bears have taken over first place in their division - for now. They shut out the Miami Dolphins last night, 16-0.

The rare Thursday night game allowed them to get the leg up over division rivals Green Bay before the Packers game on Sunday.

Last night the Bears' defense took center stage shutting out Miami. The Dolphins' third-string quarterback was sacked six times. On offense, the Bears' Jay Cutler completed 16-25 passes for 156 yards. And kicker Robbie Gould made three field goals.

The Bears return to Soldier Field to take on the Philadelphia Eagles on November 28th.
