Against the Packers on Sunday, Chicago’s Tarik Cohen showed why he’s one of the best young speedsters in the NFL.
There have been a lot of reasons for Chicago Bears fans to enjoy this 2018 season, ranging all the way from offense to defense.
One of the more exciting, explosive reasons has been the emergence of second-year running back Tarik Cohen, who has really used his minutes this season to establish himself and feisty little ball of fire for this Chicago offense.
As the Bears continue to push toward the NFC North crown, Cohen brought fans out of their seats against the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field, scoring an explosive touchdown to give Chicago a 14-3 lead late in the first half.
With the Bears inside the red zone, Mitchell Trubisky got off a laser pass on the right side to Cohen, who showed the wheels and flew to the goal line, ultimately diving into the end zone to avoid a pair of Green Bay defenders. Cohen didn’t feel like slowing down there, as he hopped right back up and immediately sprinted to the other side of the end zone in celebration.
While the touchdown was certainly worthy of a celebration, it might not be all the Bears celebrate on Sunday, as they can clinch their first NFC North title since 2010 with a win over the Packers.
