One week after Tarik Cohen played on just 13 snaps and picked up only two touches, the rookie running back is making the most of an up-tick in playing time:

On a well-designed play from Offensive Coordinator Dowell Loggains, Cohen received a pitch from quarterback Mitch Trubisky, sprinted up the left sideline and flew into the end zone for the Bears’ third offensive touchdown of the day.
Cohen’s declining playing time was a major talking point after the Bears’ loss in Week 10 to the Green Bay Packers. And it was evident that Loggains and John Fox were going to make it a point of emphasis to get the player described as the offense’s best playmaker more involved in the offense. That was Trubisky’s wish during this practice week, after all.
Cohen’s touchdown and Connor Barth’s extra point tied the game at 24-all. The Bears defense needs a stop inside the two-minute warning.
