Updated 10/2/2012 12:45 AM


Quarterback: A


Eighteen of 24 for 2 TDs and a 140 QB rating? That's more like it, Jay Cutler.

Running backs: C

Flashes of brilliance for Matt Forte, but overall just OK.

Receivers: A

That's exactly why the Bears acquired Brandon Marshall.

Offensive line: B

The DeMarcus Ware scare just wasn't there.


Defensive line: B

Beltin' Henry Melton leads way with a sack and a forced INT.

Linebackers: B

Big pick for a TD by Lance Briggs; Nick Roach noticeable.

Secondary: A+

Four INTs including a pick-6 for Charles Tillman. Impressive.

Special teams: C

Robby Gould simply sterling. The rest? Bleh.

Coaching: A

Lovie had the Bears primed for prime time.
