Chicago Week 10 Teammates of the Week: Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

It was a disheartening loss, but a pair of Chicago Bears players made a huge impact.

Put on your thinking caps: When was the last time the Chicago Bears had two 100-yard wide receivers in one game? In thinking about it, I had an idea of when it might have happened, but couldn't remember for sure.  So I looked it up.

It had been a while... Like, over 10 years.

My hunch was right, at least in a general sense of who it could have been: Dez White and Marty Booker.  Those two Bears wide receivers both went over 100 yards receiving back in 2002, in a game coincidentally against the Detroit Lions.

I say coincidentally, because no other Chicago WR duo would accomplish that feat again until Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery did it last week... against the Lions.

The final stat line looked like this:

- Brandon Marshall  7 rec, 139 yds, 2 TD

- Alshon Jeffery  9 rec, 114 yds

Of course, Jeffery had what seemed to be a touchdown catch at one point in the game, but was ruled incomplete after the referee went under the hood and determined that the wide receiver actually bobbled the ball when he hit the ground.

For this performance, a feat that hadn't been accomplished in over a decade, Marshall and Jeffery have been named the Chicago Bears Teammates of the Week.
