Brandon Marshall had a big game for the Chicago Bears on Sunday, even if they did end up losing to the Seattle Seahawks.
Brandon Marshall has been one of the primary catalysts for the Chicago Bears' success this season. On Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, his big game couldn't lead the Bears to a win, but calling it a "big game," still doesn't do it much justice.
Marshall caught 10 passes for 165 yards, and has 91 receptions for 1,182 yards and eight touchdowns on the season. He was targeted 14 times on Sunday, so he missed four of them, but he was essentially the only receiver on the team, given that Devin Hester and Alshon Jeffery were out, and Earl Bennett went down during the game with a concussion.
With a supporting cast that featured Eric Weems as essentially the No. 2 receiver, Marshall almost led the Bears to victory. As described by ESPN Chicago, Marshall caught a 56-yard pass that went almost 50 yards through the air on its own. Marshall jumped in front of Richard Sherman, who appeared primed to pick off the ball.
The play set up a game-tying field goal, but the Seahawks eventually took the win. Still, it was another big day for Marshall.
