Watch Cole Kmet Score His First NFL Touchdown

Chicago Bears

I haven’t been shy sharing my concerns about Cole Kmet’s development as a rookie, but I found myself encouraged that he has Jimmy Graham to lean on in tough times.

And on the Bears’ first offensive possession, Kmet did quite the Graham impression:

What an incredible throw! And catch!

The Bears took a 7-0 lead as Kmet scored his first touchdown as a pro. Getting there wasn’t pretty, as the Bears had to call a timeout because of confusion and then followed with a false start penalty on 3rd-and-goal. But that will get swept under the rug thanks to the touchdown score.

And to think, it wouldn’t have been possible without this takeaway:

Don’t stop now, Bears.
