Forte: Bears offense shined when it had to

The Bears offense might have been inconsistent in Sunday’s 24-21 win against the Bengals, but Matt Forte felt he got stronger as the game went on.

The running back had 50 rushing yards and 41 receiving yards against the Bengals. He pointed to Jay Cutler’s scrambling as an X-factor.

“We ran the ball, threw the ball, ran some screens,” he said.

“Sometimes we had to make a play.”

He said it felt good for the offense to pick up the defense — as opposed to recent years.

“it’s been strong defense, and try to hold on on offense,” he said.
