Who Stood Out in Bears’ Second-Half Shellacking?

It was a statement, comeback win for the Bears on Sunday. Scoring 38 points in the second half means many, many Bears stood out as the team's best, the Grizzly Bears.

Brandon Marshall: That smile on Mike Tice and Jay Cutler's faces at the end of the game can be attributed to Marshall and his 12 catches for 144 yards and a touchdown. Even with Jacksonville's secondary playing rough, Marshall was able to manage his best game as a Bear.

Lance Briggs: It was hard deciding between Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman because both they constantly do the same things. They both returned an interception 36 yards for a touchdown. They both had four tackles. What puts Briggs ahead? His sack of Blaine Gabbert, but both men have had a memorable few games.

Matt Forte: The Bears were a mess in the first half. They were sluggish and unable to find a rhythm. But Forte was able to run the ball keep the Bears in the game. He finished with 107 yards on the ground and another 20 by air.

Corey Wootton: It was another big game for the Northwestern alum. He sacked Gabbert twice, giving him 3.5 on the season. One of those sacks came with a forced fumble that was recovered by the Bears.

In a win like the Bears had, there weren't many Bears who didn't play well. But one stood out as the team's Teddy Bear.

Gabe Carimi: For the past two years, the biggest problem with the Bears offensive line was J'Marcus Webb. Now, he's being overshadowed by second-year right tackle Carimi. He drew two back-to-back false start penalties, and let Jay Cutler be hit way too often. He has the size, but now needs to get down the timing to help the team.
