BEAR MARKET: What’s rising and falling in Week 7

Rising

Matt Forte: Bears running back Matt Forte had a 50-yard touchdown gallop Sunday, his third run of 50 yards or more this season.

Kick coverage: The Bears’ kick-coverage unit allowed only three returns for an average of 17.7 yards. Not bad for the under-the-microscope unit.

Charles Tillman: Welcome back, Peanut. He grabbed his third interception of the season, jumping in front of a Robert Griffin III pass in the first quarter.

Falling

First-half offense: Devin Hester’s punt-return score masked the offense’s overall ineptitude in the first 30 minutes. The Bears had 46 total yards, only 28 in the air.

“Snare” Jordan: Jordan Reed set a Redskins rookie record for receiving yards by a tight end, catching nine passes for 134 yards.

Time of possession: The Redskins held the ball for almost 34 minutes, including a stunning 22:01 in the first half.
