Grizzly Bears and Teddy Bears: British Beatdown



    The Bears' European Vacation wasn't gorgeous, but it did give them a winning record going into the bye week.

    Grizzly Bears -- the players who deserve an audience with the queen (or at least Kate and Wills!) for the way they played:

    Matt Forte: Wow. How many different ways can he impress us? The juke that caused two Tampa Bay defenders to collide was a thing of both beauty and hilarity. His performance was true to form for the season. He was responsible for 46.2 percent of yards before the Bucs game. On Sunday? He was responsible for 46.3.

    Roy Williams: It's taken some time, but Williams showed his worth on Sunday. He fought for a touchdown as a part of his four catches for 59 yards. Not too bad for a day that the Bears relied on the run.

    Lance Briggs: Mike Martz should consider using the linebacker as a running back after Briggs broke tackles on his way to the 1-yard line after an interception. The play was called back to the 50 because of a Tim Jennings penalty, but it didn't take away Briggs' excellent game that included an interception, two broken up passes and five tackles.

    Teddy Bears -- the players who could be locked in the Tower of London:

    Jay Cutler
    : He said that jet lag didn't affect him, but Cutler was clearly off his game. He threw two interceptions and completed just 53.1 percent of his passes. However, there is good news. First, he finally connected with Roy Williams for a touchdown. Second, the Bears still won. Since coming to Chicago, the Bears are 13-0 when Cutler has a passer rating of 100 or higher. They showed that they can still win even when the QB is off his game. That's a sign of a playoff team.

    Robbie Gould
    : It's rare that the kicker makes the Teddy Bears list, but Gould missed on a 41-yard kick that would normally be a chip shot for him. That messed with his accuracy percentage, which was on its way for being one of the best in the league.
