The Bears' offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 17-14 loss to the Redskins in Week Seven.
WR Johnny Knox accounted for the Bears' lone offensive touchdown of the game, catching a nine-yard pass from QB Jay Cutler with 24 seconds to play in the first half. He led Chicago with six catches for 86 yards, but, like some of his fellow players on offense, he had his share of bad moments, too. Knox didn't reel in a couple catchable passes.
The Bears struck first Sunday when CB D.J. Moore made his third interception of the season. DE Israel Idonije batted QB Donovan McNabb's pass into the air and Moore caught the ball before returning it 54 yards for a touchdown. Moore had another pick-six later in the game, but it was called back because of a delay-of-game penalty on Washington.
No one had a remarkable day on special teams, but RB Garrett Wolfe and Rashied Davis each made a couple of tackles in coverage. Davis made his defending the first two kickoffs of the game, as he twice stopped Redskins KR Brandon Banks inside Washington's 30-yard line in the first quarter. Wolfe also downed a Brad Maynard punt.
