Against the Detroit Lions in Week 15, the Bears’ receiving corps put up their best collective numbers all season long. They combined for 198 yards, with Kendall Wright leading the way with seven catches for 81 yards. Josh Bellamy was next in line with five receptions for 70 yards, and Markus Wheaton and Dontrelle Inman combined for three grabs for 47 yards. With the coaching staff allowing their rookie quarterback to throw the ball more, Chicago’s receivers may be in for another productive game against the Browns’ 21st pass defense that is surrendering an average of 235.6 yards per game.
