Tarik Cohen has breathed life in to what has been – at times – a lifeless Chicago Bears offense.
It all started with a 46-yard video-game-like run that set up a touchdown out of the wildcat formation, but Cohen didn’t stop there:

Cohen’s first NFL touchdown is a big one, drawing the Bears to within three points only moments after allowing an 88-yard touchdown reception to Austin Hooper on third down with the Atlanta Falcons operating out of the shadow of their own end zone.
With the Bears dressing only four receivers, Cohen has needed to be a factor out of the backfield and he’s done exactly that. He has five rushes for 66 yards and seven catches for 43 yards. Picking up 109 yards of total offense in your regular season debut isn’t shabby.
