Bears: wildcat quarterback, chain mover. Yes, Earl Bennett resumed his role as Chicago’s Swiss Army knife of offense Monday night after missing nearly six games with a torso injury, and he didn’t disappoint, racking up five catches for 95 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown that gave the team a 27-24 lead.
Bennett caught just two balls in the first half for 40 yards and took one snap as quarterback in the Wildcat formation.
Look for his role to increase as the season continues. Jay Cutler's comfort with the receiver was apparent almost immediately against the Eagles. On Chicago’s first third-down situation, Cutler completed a 14-yard strike to Bennett.
