The Bears -- who forced four turnovers -- picked up where they left off last season when they led the NFL with 44 takeaways and finished with nine defensive touchdowns, one shy of the league record.
Chicago's offense, however, left plenty of room for improvement.
Newton was 3 of 6 for 16 yards.
Norman had two interceptions, including one he returned 60 yards for a score.
