Last week, Brandon Marshall got the trash talk between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers going when he called Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers their most valuable player. Capers had planned for Marshall in Week 2, limiting him to just two catches with 24 yards of receiving in the Packers' 23-10 victory.
Marshall had a better day against the Packers Sunday, with six receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown. But the Packers still emerged victorious 21-13 at Soldier Field. Even though cornerback Charles Woodson is injured and didn't play against the Bears, that didn't stop him from talking a little smack to Marshall after the game.
I guess we have to give credit to our defensive MVP again, Dom Capers. He did a great job out there today, played well,
made plays when he needed to. Hats off to Dom."
The loss pushed the Bears out of the final playoff spot in the NFC, now trailing the New York Giants although the teams have an identical record. The win locked up the NFC North for the Packers but they're still two games behind the Atlanta Falcons for the first seed in the playoffs.
