This shouldn't come as any surprise to Bears fans.

DeSean Jackson's arrival alongside Pierre Garcon in Washington, D.C., got people talking about the best wide receiver duos in the NFL.

And, as the headline indicates, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery were named as the league's top pair on Yahoo's Shutdown Corner, combining for 189 catches, 2,716 yards and 19 touchdowns.

It'd hard to argue against that as Marshall is one of the elite receivers in the game and Jeffery made some ridiculous highlight-reel catches in 2013. Both players also found their way to the Pro Bowl.

Two other NFC North rivals made the list — Green Bay's Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb were second while Detroit's Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate were fifth. Jackson and Garcon came in sixth.
