Week 1: Chicago Bears 24, Cincinnati Bengals 21- Post Game Recap

Star wide-outs Brandon Marshall of Chicago and A.J. Green of Cincinnati were on display in this Week 1 affair that produced a pretty good game.  The two dueled for supremacy at their respective positions, Green caught 9 passes for 162 yards and 2 touchdowns while Marshall hauled in 8 catches for 104 yards and the eventual game-winning touchdown.  The Bears defense picked up where they left off from last season with 3 forced turnovers (two of them being interceptions).  Matt Forte scored a touchdown on the ground, as did BenJarvus Green-Ellis.  The only real difference in this game was the turnover differential (Chicago was +2).  As expected these two teams were evenly matched, went at it in the trenches, and produced a close game.  Cincinnati heads home to take on the Steelers in a big game where each will try to avoid starting 0-2 while the Bears stay home to host the Minnesota Vikings.  If they can hold the Vikings to just 63 yards on the ground, they will be golden.
