Forte TD grab fifth best play of year

Last week we invited fans to select the Bears' top five plays of the season. Finishing in fifth place with four percent of the vote was Kyle Long's 10-yard touchdown reception against the Dolphins.

Forte reached up and plucked Jay Cutler's pass out of the air with one hand before gliding into the end zone for a 10-yard score Oct. 19 in a 27-14 loss to Miami at Soldier Field.

Adding a 1-yard touchdown run, Forte scored on a rush and a reception in the same game for the third time in his career. He also accomplished the feat in 2008 at Detroit and in 2013 versus Green Bay.

Forte finished the season with 102 receptions, breaking Larry Centers' record of 101 set in 1995 for the most by an NFL running back.

"He's a heck of a player," Cutler said. "Every single day we've talked about it numerous times about the way he comes to work, his dedication to the Chicago Bears, and all he's done throughout his career. That's a heck of record. That's a lot of catches, that's a lot of production from him. It just kind of tells you how good of a back he is."
