The vision for this Bears offense was to be able to allow opposing defenses to pick their poison.
That vision became reality in Jacksonville as the Bears were proficient at gashing the Jaguars with whatever the Jaguars concentrated the fewest resources on.
The Jaguars wanted to shadow Brandon Marshall with cornerback Derek Cox. So by moving Marshall around, the Bears could determine what coverage the Jaguars would play.
There were times, especially early, when the Bears probably were a little too dependent on Marshall. But that set up payoffs late in the game.
Alshon Jeffery's 10-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter might not have happened without Marshall's early success. The Jaguars had both Cox and safety Chris Prosinski jamming Marshall at the line as if he were a gunner on a punt team.
With the Bears running a two-man route, the other safety was preoccupied with a tight end. That left Jeffery one-on-one with Rashean Mathis, and he ran a simple slant toward the middle of the field that Prosinski normally would take away.
Devin Hester's spectacular 39-yard catch also was made possible by Marshall because the safety rolled to Marshall's side, leaving Hester one-on-one with Mathis.
Here's what else we learned upon further review.
Grading key: Grades are between 0 and 10 with 0 being complete failure and 10 being perfect.
Marshall made the most of his opportunities, making tough catches like he did on the 11-yard gain when he was drilled low by linebacker Russell Allen, creating separation like he did with a stutter-step move on Cox on his 24-yard touchdown, and gaining yards on his own like he did on his 15-yard second-quarter gain (9 came after the catch)
All three Bears running backs took advantage of some nice creases, showing vision and determination. The backs averaged 6.19 yards per carry, and they contributed another 46 yards in receiving.
What the Bears backs did best was apply body blows once the Jaguars were on the ropes.
On a drive that began late in the third quarter, Michael Bush accounted for 41 yards and three first downs. He refused to go down without a fight, and he even went Renaldo Nehemiah on Prosinski, hurdling him for one of the first downs after a catch.
Forte ran for 45 of his yards in the fourth quarter before letting Allen have a little fun.
