Jordan Howard’s 2-Yard Plunge Helps Bears Re-Take Lead (VIDEO)

Chicago Bears

Good things happen when you give the ball to Jordan Howard.

Howard’s 2-yard touchdown run provided an exclamation point on a 12-play, 90-yard drive that chewed up 7 minutes and 43 seconds and helped the Bears re-gain a 14-9 lead. Time wise, it was the Bears’ lengthiest touchdown drive of the year. That’s what a playoff-ready offense looks like.

Howard has 8 carries for 38 yards after that drive, but it would be nice to get him some more since he is averaging 4.8 yards per carry.

Scoring on the team’s first offensive possession of the second half breathes new life into a team that didn’t have much going for it in the first half. Now, they’ll need to conjure up some defensive stops and put some more points on the board to create some much-needed breathing room.
