The Chicago Bears are preparing themselves for Sunday’s game against the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.

Last week this Bears team lost a heart breaker to division rival Detroit Lions who take the two game division series from Chicago. It was Detroit’s first victory in Chicago in several years and allowed them to take soul possession of first place in the NFC North.

Quarterback Jay Cutler returned from a torn groin injury after just two weeks of short recovery time. During the game, Cutler was taking hard hit after hit but still got up even though he was showing signs of pain.

With Cutler out, this offense can still keep up with their opponents. McCown has stepped in and done a beautiful job considering he hasn’t had that many reps with the first string group.

Tight end Martellus Bennett has been a big part of this offense that has been one of the highest scoring offenses in the league to start off the season. Bennett is just 15 receptions from tying his career high in that category, one from tying his touchdown high and 205 yards from his receiving yards mark.

All these numbers are more than halfway the team only playing nine games so far. He’s currently on pace to smash all those records if he can manage to stay off the sidelines. He’s missed a decent amount of practice this year but has yet to miss a single game.

Bennett continues to show this team that they’ve received more than what they paid for and can be a dangerous receiving tight end in this league.

According to Jeff Dickerson on Twitter, Bennett sat out of practice today with an ankle problem.
