Associate editor Dan Parr selects an offensive, defensive and special-teams player of the week for the Bears following their Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

Offense: WR Johnny Knox

Knox made his share of mistakes early in the game Sunday, but he also accounted for four of the Bears' 10 longest plays from scrimmage. He scored a 29-yard TD on a slant route in the second quarter and also made an 81-yard grab to help set up the Bears' fourth-quarter TD. Knox finished with four catches for a career-high 145 yards.

Defense: DE Julius Peppers

The Bears' defensive line played a good game Sunday, but Peppers had the best showing of all. He won battles against the left side of Oakland's O-line, sacking QB Carson Palmer twice for a loss of 20 yards. He had one other tackle for loss and one other QB hit. Peppers had five total tackles against the Raiders.

Special teams: Bears PK Robbie Gould

Gould's performance was overshadowed by Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski's six field goals, but Gould stayed perfect from 50 yards or longer, making 50- and 53-yard attempts in the fourth quarter to keep the Bears within striking distance. He also had three of his four kickoffs result in touchbacks.
