The Bears defense stepped up big time in Antrel Rolle's absence during Sunday's win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Jay Cutler spearheaded the Bears to a pair of late touchdown drives in a 18-17 win, but a couple key third down stops made it possible.
The 32-year-old defensive back, who's battling an ankle injury, talked about the defense delivering at the right time on The Antrel Rolle Show on Tuesday.
"Huge. They complete one third down and that game is out of reach," Rolle said. "I think the defense stepped up huge. Coach [Vic] Fangio putting those guys in the right position to make the plays."
See what else Rolle had to say in the video above, as well as his three keys to a win over the Detroit Lions in the video below.
