Inside the Bears:
OAKLAND, Calif. — It’s not often argued that the Bears lost the special-teams battle, but there was no dispute after their 25-20 loss Sunday, not even from within their locker room. The Raiders owned the third phase. “They beat us on special teams,” returner Devin Hester said. “They overpowered us. There’s no other way to put it than that.” The Bears had their moments. Robbie Gould kicked 50- and 53-yard field goals in the fourth quarter to keep the game close. His onside kick in the final minutes was nearly recovered by his teammates. Johnny Knox had a 56-yard kickoff …
BEST OF MAXIM
Devin Hester and Chris Massey are on opposite ends of the spectrum as special-teams players for the Bears. Hester is the greatest kick returner in NFL history. Massey is a typically anonymous long snapper who nobody in Chicago had ever heard of before he signed with the Bears on Thursday, even though...
The Bears seem to always be changing game plans as they never seem to have a true #1 WR. 25-year old Johnny Knox has been playing like a #1 WR the last two weeks for the Bears. In his last two games, Knox has caught 7 passes for 242 yards (34.6 avg) with 2 TD grabs for the Bears. He has now played in 11 games for the Bears this year and he has caught 28 passes for 622 yards...
Johnny Knox had some great catches on Sunday in Oakland, one went for a touchdown and the other went for 81 yards.
Here’s the touchdown pass:
Here’s the 81-yard catch and run:

Arizona's Patrick Peterson is having a season to remember on kick/punt returns, watch as Peterson returns this punt 80 yards for a touchdown against the St. Louis Rams.
This is Peterson's fourth touchdown return of the season which ties him with Chicago's Devin Hester for the most kick returns for touchdowns in a single season:
The Bears brought their vaunted defense and their All-World kick returner, Devin Hester into Oakland on Sunday. And by the end of the game, it was the Raiders who were able to pull out the win on the shoulders of their defense and special teams play.
The Bears defense was as advertised in this game. They held Carson Palmer and the Raiders offense out of the endzone through much...
OAKLAND -- Receiver/kick returner Devin Hester is in the lineup despite missing practice time with a shin injury, and rookie Nathan Enderle is listed as the backup quarterback behind starter Caleb Hanie as the Chicago Bears prepare to face the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Devin Hester holds the record for most punt return touchdowns, and the Bears' return ace might have some competition for that mark in Cardinals rookie Patrick Peterson.
