LAKE FOREST – Without meaning to sound cocky or pretentious, Cedric Benson took a little credit for Thomas Jones' big rushing day against Detroit.
"I'm motivating him," said Benson, the Bears' rookie first-round draft pick. "My motivation is entirely coming from being a rookie and hungry to get out there and be the guy. But I think my game and my presence is motivating him quite a bit, and he's stepped his game up a lot."
