[December 11, 2013]  QB Josh McCown has a 114.5 passer rating as Jay Cutler's replacement, but said he fully understand the job is Cutler's when he returns.

WR Brandon Marshall went over the 1,000-yard receiving barrier for the seventh straight season with a 100-yard night that leaves him at 1,090 yards.

Bears coach Marc Trestman has proven his willingness to take a gamble, yet his biggest risk awaits when quarterback Jay Cutler returns from an ankle sprain.

RB Matt Forte had 102 yards rushing to reach 1,073, his fourth 1,000-yard season. Walter Payton is the only Bears back who had more. Forte also had 73 receiving yards for 518 on the year, marking his second time over 1,000 yards rushing and over 500 yards receiving. No other back in team history, including Payton, has had two seasons of 1,000 and 500.

With three field goals, Robbie Gould moved over the 1,000-point barrier for his career.
