This week’s Bear Goggles On Game Ball goes to Matt Forte. Hands down Matt Forte was the offensive weapon of choice for the Chicago Bears in their win against the Oakland Raiders.
Matt Forte rushed for 76 yards on 6 attempts and 2 receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown.
Honorable mention has to go to Alshon Jeffery who had 7 receptions for 77 yards. He made some great catches even when he was slipping on the baseball surface showing concentration and skill.
The offensive line as a whole also gets an honorable mention opening up the holes and lanes for Forte. The two rookies on the right side of the line, Jordan Mills and Kyle Long, continue to impress and grow. It appears the offensive line has been solidified for week 1 of the regular season.
