A seven-year veteran, Forte has racked up 932 yards on 230 carries this season.
These two teams meet tonight at Soldier Field in what should be a high-scoring game. There are plenty of fantasy points on the board here.
Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte sees the commitment to the handoff and can’t help but come away impressed.
The Chicago Bears are going to try to reach the .500 mark when they face the Lions in the opening game of the Thanksgiving Day triple header.
Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.
The Detroit Lions are no stranger to dangerous running backs, and they get to try to handle another one Sunday at Philadelphia.
Right or wrong, it is safe to say football does not look the way it used to.
Schwartz even agreed to compare Forte with freakishly talented Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson.
Even in a league renowned for parity, some games mean more than others.
Coaches have admitted the league has shifted toward the pass-first offense. It’s even inherently written into the rules.
