In a strong week for the NFC North where we saw the Minnesota Vikings finally got a win and the Lions for the most part running through the Chicago Bears. The Bears Seemed to have trouble for most of the game containing and controlling one player in particular, that player is Reggie Bush, who is also my NFC North player of the week.

With a total of 139 yards rushing  yards and a touchdown on 18 carries , along with 34  receiving yards on 4 catches, Reggie Bush gave the Bear’s Defensive Line and linebackers fits trying to plug holes and contain him, especially when he’s coming off an injury.

The way he could find the holes in the line and burst through them, was impressive. I wasn’t expecting such a dominate performance against one of the better defenses in, if not the conference, the league. If Bush can continue to stay health and put up numbers like this, he’ll be one of the more dominate backs in the league this year. He’s already reminding people of what he did at USC.   If any of you don’t have him yet for your fantasy leagues, it wouldn’t be the worst idea to maybe pick him up.

The Lions will be a tough team to beat if both Bush and Matt Stafford play the rest of the season like they did against Chicago. Detroit will be playing another tough divisional game as they go to Green Bay and face the Packers. The Bears will host the New Orleans Saints as they try to rebound from this tough loss.
