Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall set season-highs in receptions and receiving yards in his team's 41-3 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. The Jaguars intercepted the first pass thrown by Jay Cutler in Marshall's direction, but Marshall and the Bears rebounded for a big second half. The Jaguars just were not able to find an answer for Marshall's play.

Marshall finished the game with 12 receptions for 144 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown catch that came during a Jaguars blitz. For the season, Marshall has 35 catches for 496 yards and three touchdowns.

Marshall's efforts were part of a Chicago outburst that saw the Bears score 38-straight points. Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert threw a pair of interceptions in the second half, both of which were returned for touchdowns.

The Jaguars are off in Week 6, and then they'll hit the road to face the Oakland Raiders in Week 7. Jacksonville is still searching for its second win of the season.
