NFL Football: Bears pound Falcons in opener

Brian Urlacher had an interception and returned a fumble for a touchdown, Jay Cutler threw for 312 yards and two scores and the Bears pounded Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons 30-12 on Sunday.
In a matchup between reigning division champions, it was no contest. This one clearly belonged to Chicago.
