Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall combined for a whopping 249 receiving yards during the Bears’ 27 victory over the Falcons on Sunday and helped Jay Cutler enjoy one of the best passing games of his career. Cutler finished the day with 381 yards and a touchdown through the air, good for a 109.6 rating. Matt Forte also provided a huge boost for the offense with 80 yards rushing and two scores along with 10 catches for 77 yards. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the day though came from the defense, which racked up four sacks in the victory, two of which came from Willie Young and one from Jared Allen, his first of the season. The Bears will next host the Dolphins at Soldier Field on Sunday and will hope to have their linebackers at full strength for the game.
