| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Bears running back Matt Forté was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week after totaling 201 yards from scrimmage in his team's 19-14 victory over the Detroit Lions.

Forte had 151 receiving yards, including two touchdowns, as well as 50 rushing yards.

His 151 receiving yards was second most in franchise history by a running back, and the 89-yard touchdown reception was tied for the fourth longest pass in team history.

It is the first time Forte has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week. He is the first Bears running back to win the award since Anthony Thomas in 2001.

I'm happy for Forte and believe he deserved the award, in spite of the fumble.On the other hand, Cutler was also in the mix, and the end zone drop and missed assignments were factors he had to overcome. The touchdown pass to Forte was a thing of beauty, partly because it was so unexpected.
