Earl Bennett has had several good downfield blocks this season but nothing that compares to the crunching blow he put on Seattle punter Jon Ryan during Hester's 89-yard punt return.
"I mean, I wasn't trying to like kill the guy or nothing," Bennett said. "I'm playing football, you know?"
Bears kicker Robbie Gould came off the sideline to see if Ryan was OK and was quickly followed by the Bears' and Seahawks' medical staffs. Ryan remained down for several minutes before being helped from the field.
"It sucks when you get one returned on you like that, especially when you don't remember it," Ryan said.
