Week 7 inside the Bears numbers by STATS

SHARE Week 7 inside the Bears numbers by STATS

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has done a very good job of spreading the wealth around to his receivers, but some have had more room to take off than others.

Running back Matt Forte and tight end Martellus Bennett lead the Bears in yards after catch. Both rank among the top 25 players in the league as far as YAC.

Forte is on pace for his most productive pass-catching season since 2010, while Bennett has already surpassed the combined numbers of the Bears’ tight ends from last season.

Jay Cutler has done a much better of protecting the football this season under coach Marc Trestman, but his three fumbles lost in six games still rank among the league leaders.

Cutler, though, does find himself in some acclaimed company when it comes to losing fumbles.
