The Bears' offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 23-20 loss to the Seahawks in Week Six:

Offense

After making just two catches in his last two games, WR Johnny Knox made a team-high five grabs for 120 yards. He had a 67-yard reception in the second quarter in which he ran up the sideline to the Seahawks' 25-yard line. He had a 13-yard catch on the next play, which helped set up PK Robbie Gould's 24-yard field goal. It pulled the Bears to within one point of Seattle before halftime.

Defense

Filling in for the injured Lance Briggs, WLB Brian Iwuh made a team-high nine tackles, including one for loss, in his first start as a Bear. The last six of those stops came on plays in which the Seahawks were held to a gain of five yards or less. It wasn't a good day for Chicago's defense, but Iwuh did a solid job in a difficult situation.

Special teams

Devin Hester put the Bears within striking distance late in the fourth quarter with an 89-yard punt return for a touchdown, but Chicago's onside kick attempt was unsuccessful. It was Hester's 13th kickoff or punt return for a TD, which tied Brian Mitchell's all-time league record.
