Here are the Bears' offensive, defense and special-teams players of Week Nine.

Offense

Bears QB Jay Cutler looked like a professional quarterback again two weeks after being intercepted four times by Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall. He completed 17-of-30 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns. He didn't throw an interception, but he did let the ball get stripped from him early in the fourth quarter. Cutler made plays with his legs, too, picking up two first downs while rushing five times for 39 yards.

Defense

There were big plays made by several Bears defenders, including CB Tim Jennings and S Chris Harris (one interception each) and CB Charles Tillman, who forced and recovered a fumble. MLB Brian Urlacher and DE Julius Peppers seemed to play the most complete games, though. Urlacher made nine tackles and Peppers was constantly getting after Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, hitting him four times. Peppers also had a tackle for loss.

Special teams

P Brad Maynard came through in the fourth quarter with a little over a minute left when he pinned the Bills back at their own 1-yard line. His punt traveled 46 yards after taking a friendly bounce that came very close to hitting CB Corey Graham's chest. Graham stayed with the ball as it rolled and was in position to down it at the one.
