Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen were stars on the Chicago Bears’ first scoring drive of the day.
The two combined for six consecutive carries before this play action pass to tight end Adam Shaheen to put the Bears on the board:

What a beautiful piece of work. Just when you thought the Bears were going to ground-and-pound their way to a score, they break out ol’ reliable play action to put points on the board.
Chicago ran seven times for 45 yards and received contributions from Cohen and Howard. Cohen picked up a key fourth-down conversion with an 8-yard run on 4th-and-1, then Howard pounded away with some runs, which was highlighted by a 22-yard carry.
Shaheen’s touchdown tied the game at 7-7 after a successful Cody Parkey PAT. The Giants jumped out of the gates with a pick-six on the Bears’ second offensive play from scrimmage. That came after Taquan Mizzell Sr. fumbled the opening kick-off and gave his team poor field position. It was not the type of start you expect from an 8-3 team.
The Bears are off to a slow start and have a long way to go before they can start thinking about 9-3. But things are starting to turn around.
