The more you watch Charles Tillman in action, the more you have to love the way the guy plays the game. The veteran corner had a pair of forced fumbles, a pass breakup in the end zone and kept Calvin Johnson without a reception until late in the third quarter.

For guts alone, Jay Cutler would rate an A. His numbers weren't that great Monday night, but the effort and the win was.
Running backs: B+
The Bears needing a big rushing night -- particularly in the second half -- and Matt Forte and Michael Bush came through big-time.
Two words: Brandon Marshall. Enough said.
Offensive line: C+
The line gave Cutler protection early, but things changed. Run blocking solid throughout, though.
Defensive line: B
That rotating lineman system seems to be working pretty well.
Lance Briggs solid as usual and Brian Urlacher had his most active game of the season.
Calvin Johnson was a nonfactor thanks to Peanut Tillman. Another stellar game for the unit as whole.
Special teams: C
Adam Podlesh had a real nice night, but how weird was it to see a Robbie Gould field goal blocked?
Great schemes defensively and offensively, they did just enough.
