|The Chicago Bears take their turn in the examination room after beating Detroit.|
Receiver Earl Bennett appeared to be an afterthought in Mike Martz's precision offense, but he is emerging as Cutler's most trusted target. In the past two games, Bennett has caught 11 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns. When you watch him play, nothing in particular stands out. He's not a big guy and he's not a speedster. But he has a competitive edge that shouldn't be overlooked. About 25 of the 33 yards on his big second-quarter reception came after the catch, and he dragged Lions defensive backs Alphonso Smith and Amari Spievey the final 10 yards. I'm not sure how he is doing it, but it's clear that Bennett understands the game and now knows how to make this scheme work for him.
