Marshall TD catch second best play

Last week we invited fans to select the Bears' top plays of the season. Finishing second with 26 percent of the vote was Brandon Marshall's one-handed touchdown reception in a Week 2 win in San Francisco.

With the Bears trailing the 49ers 17-0 late in the first half, Marshall leaped high and plucked a 17-yard touchdown pass out of the air with his right hand in front of safety Jimmie Ward.

"When it was in the air, I just threw my hand out there and it stuck," Marshall said after the game.

A game-time decision due to an ankle injury, Marshall caught two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter to help the Bears turn a 20-7 deficit into a stirring 28-20 victory.

With the three TDs, Marshall tied a career high he set in a 51-20 win over the Titans in Tennessee on Nov. 4, 2012. In the process, he became the fourth player in Bears history to have multiple games with at least three receiving touchdowns, joining Mike Ditka, Ken Kavanaugh and Harlon Hill.

Check Friday when we reveal the top play of the season.
