"We definitely want Cedric to get more than 15 carries," offensive coordinator Ron Turner said.
Critics have suggested that Benson might be more effective if he ran with a chip on his shoulder, but he doesn't agree.
"I haven't deciphered like, under what conditions, hot or cold, sunny or dark, whether I run better or not," he said. "But I don't think it's all that necessary to be mad at somebody. It's just a matter of turning the ship around and just doing it. It's tough to put into words, you just have to go out there and crank it up."
The Bears did go to Benson more often against the Packers, but the numbers weren't much better, as he finished with 64 yards on 27 carries.
But because the Bears stuck with Benson, it opened up other avenues of the attack, including the game-winning TD pass.
"The big thing was we ran the football well," quarterback Brian Griese said. "That set up some play-action passes."
"It's exciting to finally get in there and have them call my number," said Olsen, whose 19-yard TD catch in the third quarter pulled the Bears to within 20-17. "The offense really stepped up tonight when we needed to."
Olsen's 27-yard catch helped set up the game-winning TD pass to Desmond Clark.
"This was the first week we really featured him," Griese said of Olsen. "He made some plays. He's definitely a talent."
"It doesn't matter," said defensive tackle Tommie Harris, who had three of the sacks. "We're 1-3. It's not helping. We're 1-3."
Defensive coordinator Bob Babich was pleased with the early returns on the pass rush, but not the big picture.
"The only stat we care about," Babich said, "is wins and losses."
The Bears got to Brett Favre just once all night, for a four-yard loss, on Harris' fourth sack of the season, tied for team best. But they intercepted him twice.
