The Chicago Bears came off the bus running and didn’t stop until they ended up in the end zone.
Jordan Howard opened the scoring with a 21-yard run on his first carry. It was Howard’s first touchdown since his Week 11 score against the Detroit Lions. This is how he did it:

Nice little play design from Offensive Coordinator Dowell Loggains and a well-sold throw fake from quarterback Mitch Trubisky were all part of a play in which Howard burst throw the line of scrimmage, scampered through the second level, and sped by the Cincinnati Bengals secondary to hit paydirt.
The play was set up by what almost looked to be a Tarik Cohen touchdown run:

Chicago’s rushing offense has been limited in the last two games, so it’s nice to see Howard and Cohen get off to a strong start. Trubisky also looked good on an earlier play action roll out to the right in which he connected with Josh Bellamy. It will be interesting to see how the Bears offense keeps it up against a banged up Cincinnati defense.
