The Chicago Bears needed a fourth-quarter scoring drive and it was Tarik Cohen and Nick Kwiatkoski who delivered the goods.
Thats’s right — RB2 and ILB2 came through with the eight-point possession that extended the Bears lead to 21-10 with less than eight minutes remaining in regulation.
First came the ground score:
Then the two-point conversion:
Linebackers can score 2-point conversions too.

LOL. That play had a cornerback (Prince Amukamara) in motion and a linebacker (Kwiatkoski) catching a pass. Who saw that coming?
The touchdown and two-point conversion capped a 16-play, 75-yard drive that chewed up 9:05 of game clock and covered time in both the third and fourth quarters. It featured some big-time third-down throws by Mitch Trubisky and catches from Javon Wims. Just how we drew it up back in Bourbonnais last summer!
It’s been an impressive afternoon for a Bears team that has talked about finishing all year. Now, they’ll get a chance to finish the job on the road in a place where they’ve never won before.
