The offensive line was the star of the show for the Bears on Sunday with three players landing in the top five on offense for the team. Guard Josh Sitton led the offense with an 80.8, guard Kyle Long finished with a 76.2, running back Ka'Deem Carey had a 73.5, right tackle Bobby Massie and tight end Zach Miller both finished with a 72.0. PFF's Jon Abbott gave his thoughts on the offense:

The top grades for the Bears certainly don’t come from the flashier positions, but former first-round pick Kyle Long and late preseason pick-up Josh Sitton performed well on the offensive side for Chicago. Long had a clean sheet, with no pressures allowed, and Sitton recorded a game-high run-blocking grade of 81.9.

On the defensive side of the ball, a pair of safeties played well. Free safety Adrian Amos led the way with an 84.8 overall grade, followed by outside linebacker Willie Young (83.6), defensive end Mitch Unrein (78.2), strong safety Harold Jones-Quartey (77.8) and outside linebacker Christian Jones (73.9). Abbott also broke down that side of the football: 

Willie Young had the best day among Chicago’s front-seven. He recorded the highest pass-rush grade of all Bears’ defenders (82.1), notching two QB hurries and two sacks on the day, and sprinkled in three run stops on top of that. Amos had the best day in coverage, only surrendering one reception for 5 yards, and also had a pass defense.

While Pro Football Focus highlighted the top performers on both sides of the ball, they also took a look at one of Chicago's worst performers: Brian Hoyer.

Brain Hoyer’s limitations as an NFL QB were on display Sunday afternoon. Hoyer has always been able to hit short passes, but struggles down the field, and that’s exactly what happened on Sunday. On throws under 10 yards, Hoyer was 25-35 for 233 yards. On all throws over 10 yards, however,  he was 5-for-13 for 79 yards. Hoyer also struggled when pressured, with his QB rating under pressure a dismal 54.6.

Chicago's offensive line, Young and both safeties played well, but it was hard to find any real positives on either sides of the football in Week 6.
