Grizzly Bears: The Bears who flourished in the wilds of Canada

Earl Bennett: As the leading receiver on Sunday, Bennett made his mark with four catches for 52 yards and a touchdown. His blocking was also key for Matt Forte and Chester Taylor's running attack.

Tim Jennings: The cornerback had one of the best games of his career against the Bills. His interception and run back set up the Bears for a touchdown. He added nine tackles and two broken up passes.

Israel Idonije: The Canadian started the game by singing along with a smile on his face as "O Canada" played, and his day just got better from there. He blocked a PAT, ending Rian Lindell's career-long streak of made PAT kicks. He also made three tackles and teamed up with Tommie Harris for a sack. Idonije leads the Bears with five sacks.

Matt Forte: While it wasn't as amazing as his 166-yard effort against the Panthers, Forte still showed that the running game has a place in the Bears offense. He ran for 49 yards and and added 12 receiving yards. He also held onto the ball -- something he can have trouble with -- and took a shovel pass from Cutler into the end zone for a two-point conversion.

Teddy Bears: The Bears who were gobbled up like poutine

Jay Cutler: True, he wasn't terrible on Sunday. One sack, no interceptions and one fumble are numbers that Bears fans should be thrilled about, but the Bears were playing a winless team. He should have had a career day, but instead played down to Buffalo's level.

Robbie Gould
: It's well-known that Gould rarely makes field goals over 50 yards. That is acceptable because he's usually so automatic from less than 50 yards. That was not the case on Sunday, as he sent a 42-yarder wide right in an indoor stadium.

Charles Tillman: Why was Ryan Fitzpatrick able to throw for 299 yards against the Bears? Because beyond the blitz, the Bears had no way to stop the pass. Tillman was getting beat on every play. His one redeeming play was a fumble recovery in the third quarter.
