Chicago - The Bears offense got out if its own was just enough to allow the defense to keep Buffalo out of the end zone.

First Quarter: Nate Clements 31-yard interception return for a touchdown at 4:07. When Chad Hutchinson stared down Bernard Berrian, Clements sat on the short route and made an easy interception. Rian Lindell PAT was no good. Bills 6, Bears 0.
